CV vs resume


Recommended Posts

So I just realized that some schools are asking for resume instead of CV. Does it matter that I reformat my CV to fit the resume format, or is it ok to just send in my CV? I feel like my CV captures my academic stuff way better than the resume does though

Pretty sure they meant CV but also they really are unlikely to notice the difference. They just care about the information conveyed in the CV/resume - the layout is irrelevant. I'd go with CV because it's an academic institution and they care more about your academic/research related achievements than work experience. Again, they just want the information from it - think about what info they'll care more about. Remember that it's a committee of faculty members/human beings, and the difference between a CV and resume really just comes down to layout/order/detail; they won't notice/care the difference as long as they get the info they want.
