A CV differs from a resume in a few distinct ways. While a resume is always short, the CV is always long in form, extending to about two or three pages. It documents your entire career, detailing all of your collegiate education as well as your relevant work and volunteer experience. It should list any scholarly research you've completed, especially if you presented it at a conference or published it. It also covers any awards, honors and similar credentials. It is almost always accompanied by a cover letter, whereas this isn't always necessary for resumes.

This letter is written to alleviate your fears and uncertainty while doing your due diligence in the selection of a professional resume writer over the Internet. Ann Baehr performed magic as she whittled away all the fluff and hype that was in my old resume previously written by another resume service that met with me in person and charged $800 — more than double Ann’s well-deserved fees. Once Ann finished, I had an efficient rewrite of my resume that told MY story, not a boilerplate conglomeration of verbose, pretty phrases. I am very pleased and grateful! I can’t stress enough the value of an ethical and straightforward partner in one’s quest for a professional and effective resume. Trust Ann Baehr — she’s the best resume writer!!! Thanks again Ann for doing such a great job on my resume!!
