Curriculum Vitae

If I'm not mistaken it means something akin to 'vital information' in latin.

Essentially, your CV is your resume.

The resume or a CV?
A Curriculum Vitae (latin for 'course of life'), most often called CV, is used mainly in Europe.

North Americans use CV's in international job search overseas or if they are seeking a faculty, research, clinical or scientific positions.

In a great degree the North American resumes are equivalent to European CV's.

The major difference between CV and resume is in they lengths. Usually, the standard CV is between 2 and 8 pages long where the standard resume is between 1 and 2 pages long.

Generally, most information referring to resumes is applicable to CV's and vice versa. However, you should be aware that there might be subtle conventions associated with the international job application process within different countries .
