Resumes, Curriculum Vitae, Cover Letters


A resume or curriculum vitae (CV) is a brief summary of one's professional qualifications and accomplishments, written for prospective employers for the purpose of obtaining a job. They often include the applicant's career objectives, motivations, personal qualities, skills, and interests, and hobbies. CVs, commonly used in academic and medical fields, are usually more comprehensive than resumes. For resume and CV tips and examples, click on a link below.
