CV is the abbreviation of “Curriculum Vitae”, which in Latin means course of life. CV or Curriculum Vitae is therefore (at least in Switzerland) a synonym for “CV” and belongs as an important component in every application portfolio.
A CV provides clear information about the applicant’s personal details, education and training, professional activities, special knowledge and skills, non-professional engagements and hobbies.
Curriculum Vitae (pronunciation c as k, so: Kurrikulum Witä) comes from Latin and translated into German actually means curriculum vitae. However, the term is not as common in this country as in the English-speaking area, more precisely in the UK. There, Curriculum Vitae is the usual designation and a standard document in every application. In addition to the written and spoken variant, the abbreviation “CV” has prevailed, which is much more common and is often used.
In addition to the cover letter, a possible cover page and the certificates, the curriculum Vitae is of decisive importance, because with the help of a clearly structured CV, you will ultimately convince the HR manager of yourself.
