Another discernible difference between the resume and CV is that the CV is less focused on achievements in terms of business results and more focused on awards, publications and engagements. For example, saving millions in profits is not usually the concern for the founder of a charity. Lists of speaking engagements, writings and events are more meaningful for related position.. The same thing would apply to a professor. The academic professional is not concerned with sales or business cost savings. Their achievement come in the form of research, publications, peer reviews, journals and books.
In the United States , Canada , Australia , Germany , and India , a CV is a comprehensive document used in academic circles and medical careers that elaborate on education, publications, and other achievements. A CV contains greater detail than a résumé , a shorter summary which is more often used in applications for jobs, but it is often expected that professionals use a short CV that highlights the current focus of their academic lives and not necessarily their full history. A CV is generally used when applying for a position in academia, while a resume is generally used when applying for a position in industry, non-profit, and the public sector.
