Curriculum Vitae

What is Curriculum Vitae?


‘Curriculum Vitae’ is a document that summarizes an individual’s education, job experience, skills and abilities in a well laid out manner. The origin of the term is Latin and it means, ‘course of life’.


A Curriculum Vitae or CV is the first document which any company requests from the prospective candidates before even letting them attend the interview. Hence, candidates generally try every trick in the book to make their CVs attractive to HR.


The CV should contain details of one’s academics, any certifications done, professional achievements, as well as special skills and abilities that one possesses. As it needs to include all of these, a CV is usually 2-3 pages long and hence, companies might request a CV summary for some positions.
