`Curriculum vitae` which is generally known as cv and `resume` both terms are interchangeable both contain the relevant information of a person applicable to job seeking. They both are used for same purpose-job seeking.
However there are a few basic differences, i.e. while the cv represented as a chronologically ordered information which summons up all the achievements, qualifications, awards and honors, the resume is giving a lot of information clearly and in a few words; brief but comprehensive.
Cv is generally lengthened into two to three pages whereas resume is only a one page document represented as a glance of your accomplishment.
A cv can remain static means u don’t need to change it when you are applying for different posts where as an applicant can change the resume from one job application to another and can custom made to the needs of the specific post.
