What is a curriculum vitae, or CV? (and why you may need one)

A CV (a.k.a., curriculum vitae) is a comprehensive overview of your work experience, skills and educational achievements and is sometimes used instead of resumes when applying for jobs. CVs are particularly useful for academic, medical, scientific or research positions, as they include more information about the applicant’s academic background, including awards, grants or scholarships, research projects and important publications — that’s why on this page we have a dedicated section of CV examples for these industries. A curriculum vitae may also be preferred over a resume in certain regions, such as the UK or Asia.

If a resume better suits your needs, visit our resume guide and How to Write a Resume article.
