What's a Vitae?
Well, since you asked ...
Length is the main difference between a curriculum vitae (CV) and a regular resume. A CV is a two page minimum detailed synopsis of a person's skills, experience and education. A vitae includes a summary of a person's academic background. It also should include any teaching or research experience, applicable publications, presentations, honors, awards and other such related information. In the U.S., CVs are primarily used for those applying within the academic, education, scientific or research fields and will be asked for specifically as opposed to a one page resume.
