Curriculum vitae

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A curriculum vitae (CV or vita) is a short list of a person's education and skills used for recruitment.[1]

In North America, a short CV (1-2 pages) is usually called a résumé. In North America, people say "CV" when talking about a much longer list.

In some countries, a photo of the applicant is attached to the CV.

The name curriculum vitae is Latin for "course of life."[1]
