Biodata vs Resume vs CV


Many of you are still confused about these terms BIODATA, RESUME and CURRICULUM VITAE especially first-timers who want to apply for the job at the first time. Below information might help you understand the differences between these three terms.

What is Biodata?

The Biodata contains the details mainly about your biological information e.g height, weight, gender, religion, permanent address, date of birth etc. It usually describes the person best. Biodata generally contains more details about your personal information rather than your educational qualification.

What is a Resume?

It is brief and concise information about yours and one or two pages only. A resume is a one or two page summary of your skills, education, and experience.

What is Curriculum Vitae?

The curriculum vitae contains a summary of your academic qualification, educational background, teaching experience, researching experience, awards, honors, presentations, publications and other details. There is no page limit for Curriculum Vitae. The curriculum vitae is similar to a resume, but is used more frequently by candidates who have published works in journals, such as scientists or academic professionals.

One thought on “Biodata vs Resume vs CV

  1. A CV has a clear chronological order listing the whole career of the individual whereas a resume’s information can be shuffled around to best suit the applicant. I would say the main difference between a resume and a CV is that a CV is intended to be a full record of your career history and a resume is a brief, targeted list of skills and achievements.
