primary differences between a resume and a curriculum vitae (CV) are length, what is included, and what each is used for. While both are used in job applications, a resume and a CV are not always interchangeable.

Most resumes in the United States are competency-based: they are personal marketing documents intended to showcase the candidate’s skills, notable achievements, and work experience to the greatest advantage. US CVs, submitted for jobs in academia, scientific research, and medical fields, are credential-based, providing a comprehensive (and often lengthy) listing of one’s education, certifications, research experience, and professional affiliations and memberships.

*What is CV (Curriculum Vitae)?
According to the advanced learner's Directory of contemporary English, A CV is a record of your education and employment that you send when you are applying for a job. But a more comprehensive meaning of a CV mean life history.
However for clarity sake, i think a more precise definition of a CV will not be a bad idea.
A CV is a biographic representation of your Name, Sex, Address, Phone number, Email address, Educational background, work experience, Research work, Affiliation, Honors and Hobbies.
*RESUME.
A resume on the other hand is a functional or skill based CV and it's usually called a targeted CV, because it lay emphasis more of the skills and experience of the applicant than it does of the applicants educational background. A resume is acceptable outside the shores of Africa especially America and Europe.
