Curriculum Vitae

Ini nih, dua hal yang sering dianggap sama, yaitu Curriculum Vitae (CV) dan Resume.
Mereka berdua itu kembar, namun tidak identik ya.

Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Curriculum Vitae atau sering disingkat sebagai CV sebenarnya memiliki makna cerita kehidupan yang berasal dari bahasa Latin.

Kalau dilihat dari makna tersebut, bisa mulai kita tebak nih. Jadi, CV adalah dokumen yang akan ditulis secara rinci perihal keseluruhan perjalanan atau pengalaman yang dipunya.

CV sendiri cenderung digunakan untuk tujuan akademis yang berisi beberapa rincian, seperti:

  • Education,
  • Professional Career,
  • Publications,
  • Awards,
  • Honors, and
  • other achievements.

Fun Facts: Di Amerika dan Kanada, CV digunakan hanya untuk kepentingan aplikasi akademik, seperti, pekerjaan akademik, beasiswa pendidikan, riset, dsb.

DIbawah ini ada beberapa contoh pengisian informasi yang disertakan dalam CV.

Personal Information (Data Pribadi)

Namun, tidak hanya itu, CV juga tetap memberikan informasi pribadi yang biasanya meliputi beberapa poin berikut ini beserta contoh pengisiannya.

  1. Full name: Kim Jun Myeon
  2. Place and Date of Birth: Guri, 26 March 1990
  3. Nationality: South Korea
  4. Gender: Male
  5. Religion: Catholic
  6. Address: 423, Apgujeong-ro, Gangnam-gu Seoul
  7. Phone Number: +82 1 408 0408
  8. E-mail address: smtown@exo.com
  9. Social Media: Instagram (@weareone)

Education (Pendidikan)

Di bagian ini biasa dituliskan urutan pendidikan yang sedang atau telah ditempuh. Pada umumnya, yang dituliskan, yaitu jenjang, periode studi, nama jurusan, nama sekolah atau universitas, nilai akhir yang didapatkan saat lulus.

  • Master Degree. 2018-present. Master of Education in ICT. University of Wollongong, Australia.
  • Bachelor. 2014-2018. English Education. Universitas Negeri Surabaya, Indonesia.
  • Senior High School. 2011-2014. SMA Negeri 14 Surabaya.
  • Junior HIgh School. 2008-2011. SMP Negeri 1 Surabaya.
  • Elementary School. 2002-2008.

Resume

Selanjutnya kita bersama memperlajari Resume.

Untuk Resume, dalam pembuatannya memiliki poin-poin yang serupa dengan CV, akan tetapi cara penulisan dan layout dalam dokumen yang sedikit berbeda.

Resume sendiri cenderung lebih singkat, sehingga perekrut dengan mudah mendapatkan informasi tentang calon karyawan hanya kurang dari 2 halaman dokumen.

Dalam Resume, biasanya cenderung menunjukkan kemampuan yang paling menonjol dan juga lebih spesifik berhubungan dengan pekerjaan atau posisi yang dilamar.
