While your résumé is an objective summary of your skills and achievements, the curriculum vitae (which translates to “course of life”) is written with a focus on working in academia and your academic history.
Many CVs focus on the primary criteria by which tenure judgments are made. Community college instructors might include teaching, advising, curriculum development, and institutional committee work, whereas instructors at four-year colleges and universities would also include research. CVs can also include publications, presentations, invited lectures, and other contributions to your discipline or field of study.
Purdue's well-respected OWL provides straightforward advice for those creating their first CV and addresses what you should include, formatting considerations, and writing strategies common to CV development.
