"According to the dictionary, a resume is 'a summary, as of one’s employment, education, etc., used in applying for a new position.' Conversely, a curriculum vitae (C.V.) is noted as 'a regular or particular course of study of or pertaining to education and life.'
In other words, a RESUME is a career and educational summary meant to highlight your skills and experience and a C.V. is a list meant to document every job and degree you’ve ever received in your life."
From "Resumes and CVs: What's the Difference?" by the UC Berkeley Alumni Association.
