I used to wonder what the difference is between a curriculum vita and a resume (aside from length). I mean, when do we use which? Where did these two kinds of document, very important documents, came from? How are these two used around the globe? I figured it out.
In the United Kingdom, curriculum vitae are widely used. In the United States and also here in the Philippines, the resume if the preferred one. Interestingly, in Australia, they commonly use both documents when applying for a job! Just to note, in the academia, the CV is the more preferred document of the two.
In this article, I’ll share with you the difference between the two and when to use which.
