Writing a CV
About this article
A curriculum vitae (CV) is used by professionals in the fields of academia, medicine, teaching and research. It is an overview of accomplishments relevant to the academic realm. A good CV is updated frequently and emphasizes the points considered most important in your discipline. It is also notably different than a résumé. For example, a CV generally omits objective statements or narrative profiles, which are common in a résumé.
