Question Differences between CV (Curriculum Vitae), Resume and Biodata

Hi,

Can I know the difference between the Biodata, Resume and CV ? I see these terms are interchanged freely.

Do all terms mean the same ?

Re: Diff between CV, Resume and Biodata

I found this information at the following Website: http://www.cvtips.com/

Quote:
A CV or curriculum vitae is a marketing tool. With your CV you will be able to promote yourself. Imagine the CV as being a brochure that will list the benefits of a particular service. The service being your time and skills! When writing a CV look at it from your employers point of view. Would you stand out against the competition (the other candidates) and would the manager want to talk you for a possible job? You have to ask yourself these questions when writing your CV or curriculum vitae.
As I read this definition, the CV is the same as a Resume, other than look at it from the Employer's point of view.

The linked article is not altogether accurate. For all intents and purposes, the usage of "C.V." in Europe is synonymous with "résumé" in the U.S. The forms and conventions are different as well, but the purpose of the document is the same.

In the U.S., "C.V." is used almost exclusively within academia, and is a listing of degrees, research, publications, etc. used to establish one's credentials within an academic or scientific discipline.

Re: Differences between CV (Curriculum Vitae), Resume and Biodata

CV is short for Curriculumme Vitae which is a french word which i think means fast curricullum or something, so i think it means more of a quick glimpse of your professional credentials, i'm not sure if there's a difference between resume'and CV but i recall hearing that CV is the short form, while resume is the detailed form, but i do know there are different types of CV's

Professional: Focuses on your education and job titles

Chronological: Arranged in dates highlighting your activities collectively (traininging, then work, then ecuation, then work again...according to what you did)

there are other types i can't recall them.... but you could google "cv writing" i'm sure you'll find plenty

It is not French , it is developed from ancient Latin and means "running of life" or "course of life" ...
Acceptable in this meaning all over the world ... except North America where it is linked to the Academic Achievements
