I'm applying to some schools in US for my PhD studies. In the application form there are two different places for uploading CV and Resume.
What is the difference between them?
Resume is shorter.
Resume provides a summary of your education, previous employment, skills, and accomplishments.
CV includes all the above in more details plus publications, presentations, detailed teaching experience, etc.
Resume tends to be a one page summary of what your background is with respect to the position you are applying for. informally needs to be very dumbed-down version of what you have done so it can be understood by general audience specially the early stage selection committees(read departments staff, random volunteers, HR personnel).
CV or curriculum vitae can go any number of pages and can include all aspects of you. I have heard people having a 150 pages of CV and using them for applying to positions like a program manager at NIH with 40 pages for their publications alone.
Thank you for your interest in this question.
