Preparing Your Dossier Be well organized and follow the instructions in the most recent promotion call letter. Include all requested information in the specified format. Never assume that your accomplishments are obvious to others. Provide detailed information on your accomplishments and contributions. Know your strengths and emphasize them in your CV.
Resume and Curriculum Vitae What are the differences? A resume is “a summary, as of one’s employment, education, etc., used in applying for a new position.” A resume is a career and educational summary meant to highlight your skills and experience. A resume is written in the third person so as to appear more objective and factual. A curriculum vitae (CV) is noted as “a regular or particular course of study of or pertaining to education and life.” A CV is a list meant to document every job and degree you’ve ever received in your life.
Resume and Curriculum Vitae A CV is written in paragraph style--not broken up with bulleted or italicized information to highlight any skills, accomplishments, or achievements for each specific position. Each paragraph lists the responsibilities from a first person perspective “I” and “my,” which is not done in a professional resume.
