What Europeans call a CV, Americans call a resumé. A CV to an American is typically a longer, more detailed resumé. That is, a resume is a one or two-page summary of your skills, experience and education. While a resume is brief and concise – no more than a page or two – a curriculum vitae is a longer (at least two page) and more detailed synopsis.
“When you’re up against hundreds of applicants for a job, it’s crucial to have a resume that, at the very least, doesn’t jeopardize your chances of making it into the first round.”
Don’t do these things.
