Writing a Resume
As you draft your resume, keep the company and job description at the forefront of your mind. Make sure you emphasize your experiences that are consistent with the skills the company is looking for in their next hire.

Curriculum Vitae (CV)
Some employers or graduate programs may request a curriculum vitae (or a CV) instead of a resume. A CV is very similar to a resume but more comprehensive and often multiple pages. It is often used in academia, science fields, or when applying outside of the U.S. To Learn more about writing a CV, check out the complete “How to” guide.
