CV Examples

What’s a CV? The term is an abbreviation of curriculum vitae, which is Latin for “the course of my life.” Like a resume, the CV details your most notable work experience, skills, and achievements and is a document that employers use to evaluate job candidates. However, unlike a resume, a CV is a more detailed analysis of your relevant accomplishments, which also includes scholarships, grants, publications, and even hobbies. While most employers suggest a two-page maximum for resumes, a CV can be over 10 pages in length. Perhaps best of all, you don’t have to tailor your CV for specific jobs.

Though it’s not popular in America outside the academic industry, you may still want to create one. If you plan to get a job overseas, it will come in handy. Creating and regularly updating a CV will also help you track your accomplishments and simplify resume writing. Plus, you may encounter an employer who just prefers CVs over resumes. Check out our CV examples and accompanying guides to get your own CV started.
