A CV is a special type of resume, traditionally used within the academic community (educational institutions, institutes, and research associations). It is submitted in applications to graduate programs, teaching, or administrative positions at academic institutions for grants or fellowships, or to apply for research or sabbatical assignments.
Outline your professional credentials using well-organized headings to capture your most relevant experience.
