CV Format - Different from a Resume There are many differences between a CV and a resume, and these differences will help highlight the different formatting of a CV. On a CV normally contains much more personal information than a resume does. CVs also are very education and research focused, where a resume is much more focused on summarizing your work history. A CV will not contain an objective and will not have a narrative profile. CV’s often run on for many pages. This is different from resumes, which tend to be one to two page summaries. A good CV, though, should be well organized, with clear headings. Since research and references are a highlight of CVs, you are much more likely to see "name-dropping" on a CV. For example, if you performed research under a certain professor, you would probably include the professor’s name and title on your CV. It is also common for CVs to contain a section of publications to which the candidate has contributed.
