When applying for certain positions in the US, as well as jobs internationally, you may be required to submit a curriculum vitae rather than a resume.
This CV includes employment history, education, competencies, awards, skills, and personal interests.Look, times have changed since we wrote our first resumés, but words still trump pictures in the world of job searches.Images take up space that you need for talking about your skills and qualifications, and who knows how they would print out or appear on the recruiter’s screen? I sent my glistening new creation to a trusted friend for feedback, and on the other end of the email, I got…crickets. Things change FAST these days, and my two-page behemoth wasn’t cutting it. Luckily, updating my resumé for 2014 didn’t have to be that hard. These days, potential employers still want to be able to skim your resumé for the important stuff. Or, ditch that paragraph entirely and use up that space to show your accomplishments, saving the explanations for the cover letter.
