CV stands for Curriculum Vitae. In CV, we write about our life but not everything like bio-data, in CV we write important things related to jobs and ourselves. In this we write in detail about your education, award, college name, results and whatever you have made achievements in your life. Hence CV can also be 3-4 pages long, whereas Resume means summary and the resume is absolutely unique. In this, the summary is written very short, only those things which are related to the job, so the resume is only of 1 page, maximum 2 pages but not above it.
