Difference Between a CV and a Resume?

I remember sending out my first CV – 5 pages of text and I was only 19! As the years passed that damn thing got bigger! I still have it, it’s about 10 well edited pages now but I sure don’t let anyone else see it!

What I do instead is use it for the inspiration for my 2 page resume specifically targeted at a particular job I’m after.

By all means the prospective employers are welcome to ask to see my full education summary, ask about my hobbies and all the jobs I’ve previously had – but I’ll do that verbally thanks ( in the second interview).
