Resume Samples

Vitae (CV)

A curriculum vitae (singular), meaning "course of one's life", is a document that gives much more detail than does a resume about your academic and professional accomplishments. Curricula vitae (plural) are most often used for academic or research positions, whereas resumes are the preferred documents in business and industry.

For a sample and more information on writing a CV, see our Curriculum Vitae (CV) section.
