Difference Between CV and Resume
This begs the question- why do most people not know about this? How can it be that the vast majority of Americans think that having a good resume is the best thing that you can do to get a good job? Could it be that the education system is lacking? Are career counselors misinformed about what actually works and what doesnít? Or is it simply a cultural change that education hasnít caught up with yet?
Most likely it is all of the above. Even though most people understand that writing a clear CV can be beneficial to landing a good job, they may not realize all of the positive consequences that can come from it. One of the main reasons for this is that a clear CV is thorough in explaining your past work history. Because you can discuss the work that you performed at your previous employer, you will be able to help your future employer understand your skills. Take note that you shouldnít have to explain why your skills are useful for the company. Instead, your cover letter is meant to do that! Your CV is just to explain what your skills are and how youíve used them.
Something interesting to note is that many people do not know how to write a CV. Even though they have probably heard of a CV before, they may have never actually learned the best way to set one up. For a good sample CV, consider checking out http://how-to-write-a-cv.org/. In addition to showing how to write a CV for a job, examples are provided to help you understand what you should aim for. The website discusses the difference between CV and resume. There are several clear differences, but many people are not aware of them.
Even though the perception of many people is that a clear CV works better than a traditional resume these days, more research is necessary. It could be that after this recession is over, studies will show that the traditional resume is dead and has been replaced by the CV. Time may also indicate that the idea of a CV working better than a resume is hogwash, but it is too early to tell.
