You finally get that phone call from the organization you applied to work for. “Your resume was nice, but… well…” Don’t get to the point where you become used to rejection.
Nutshell: You need a stellar CV to take your career to the next level.
A good CV is the difference between being called back for an interview/position or ending up with nothing. It shows potential employers who you are immediately based on what you’ve done and what skills you’ve cultivated. It’s basically the pre-interview interview.
As for the difference between a CV and a résumé, let’s turn to Wikipedia (emphasis mine):
A C.V. elaborates on education, publications, and other achievements to a greater degree than a résumé, but it is often expected that professionals use a short C.V. that highlights the current focus of their academic lives and not necessarily their full history.
