Career. CV (Curriculum Vitae)
CV (Curriculum Vitae) — this is a written review of your skills, education and work experience.
What is a CV?
- CV stands for "Curriculum Vitae"
- Curriculum vitae in Latin is "Course of life"
- CV is a formatted version of the main experience document - that is, a resume
What can be included in a CV?
The summary should include at least the following:
- Contact information
- Work experience
- Qualifications and skills
- Academic history

Contact information should include your full name, personal email address, phone number, and LinkedIn profile. Alternatively, put this information at the beginning of your résumé and make it look like a letterhead:
List what you have already done and what you have been doing — first of all, your most recent work experience.

March 2015 -
March 2014 — January 2015
