Curriculum Vitae

A curriculum vitae (often called a CV or vita) and a résumé have a similar purposeto provide key information about your skills, experiences, education, and personal qualities.

A résumé and vita differ in their use, format, and length. A vita is typically used in academic settings such as scientific and teaching positions, thus providing great detail about academic and research experiences. Whereas a résumé tends to be brief, a vita leans toward completeness. Explore tips for preparing your vita.
