Job Search Tip:
You may have hear of the term CV, or curriculum vitae, being used instead of the word resume. They are actually similar but different documents, but used interchangeably, and in some industries the CV is the standard document to submit with a job application, rather than a resume. The usage of CVs is much more prevalent outside of the United States, but it has gained traction within the US as well. Traditionally, the CV has been longer than a resume in terms of content, and is not as job-specific as a resume would be. It may be a good idea for you to consider creating two versions of your resume, with the second one taking the form of a CV, especially if your desired employer is a global firm or if your target job involves international travel or areas of responsibility.
