The contents of a curriculum vitae are:
1. Contact information
2. Curriculum vitae objective
3. Work experience
4. Education history

There are international differences in the usage of the term “CV” which determine whether you should submit a CV or resume with your application. In North America, CVs and resumes differ in scope and length. The definition of CV is a document used specifically for applying to graduate programs and roles in academia. In Europe and the UK, the term “CV” is used to refer to both resumes and academic CVs.
