What Is A CV?
CV is an abbreviation of Curriculum Vitae, Latin for "course of life". The plural is curricula vitae.
A curriculum vitae may be called a vita, but should not be called a curriculum vita or just vitae; the former is ungrammatical Latin and the latter is nonsensical.
The word résumé is directly from French and means "summary".
However, as we always like to highlight to our customers, your CV should be a lot more than a 'summary' or 'course of life'. It needs to highlight your skillset and most importantly, your achievements.
