Whenever we apply for jobs, we are required to prepare our biodata orresume or curriculun vitae isn't it? all three are not same and how many of them know these things? can you list out the major difference between these three here?

resume and curriculum vitae is the same. it includes summary or listing of relevant job experiences and education. but CV is expected to include a comprehensive listing of professional history including every term of employment, academic credential, publication, contribution or significant achievement. biodata is commonly for biographical data containing questions about life and work experiences, attitudes, etc.

No, resume is not supposed to be that lengthy as Curriculum vita and resume is not that much contents as Curriculum vitae biodata is the same as you said and many people are not aware of these differences in these three formats isn't it? Anyway's, thanks for responding
