Curriculum Vitae vs. Resume

A curriculum vitae (CV) is an account of your academic or professional life.. Although general guidelines exist, there is no one way to approach a CV,. You might need more than one for different kinds of positions.  Consult faculty in your specialty area or just look at the CVs of successful academics in your field.

A resume is a brief presentation of your education and employment experience for non-academic jobs.  There is lots of advice about resumes out in the world, some of it wrong or incomplete.  Consult a Rutgers career advisor for assistance.  One unbroken rule:  Make sure that your grammar, spelling, and formatting are flawless.  Get a second and third pair of eyes on your resume before submitting it.
