Is a CV or resume better?
The CV presents a full history of your academic credentials, so the length of the document is variable. In contrast, a resume presents a concise picture of your skills and qualifications for a specific position, so length tends to be shorter and dictated by years of experience (generally 1-2 pages).
What is the best format to send a CV in?
Most people prefer a Word document (. doc or . docx) due to the format being easily opened, editable and readable by ATS software, or an Applicant Tracking System. Many large companies and recruiters use ATS to automatically sift through CVs to ensure only suitable matches are sent to the hiring manager.
What should I save my CV as?
Instead, use your name as the file name. The employer will know whose resume it is at a glance, i.e., johndoeresume. doc or JohnDoeResume. docx, for example.
What do I put under my name on a resume?
A resume headline (also known as a resume title) is a brief phrase that highlights your value as a candidate. Located at the top of your resume under your name and contact information, a headline allows a recruiter to see quickly and concisely what makes you the right person for the job.
What is the difference between functional and chronological CV?
The difference between a chronological and functional resume comes down to format. A chronological resume captures your work experience under each job you have had, from most recent job to oldest job. Functional resumes have similar information, but the information is organized differently.
