In England they call it a Curriculum Vitae (pronounced “veetah”). In the US we call it a résumé, and that’s how it’s spelled. As in this comic, even though the guy has his priorities wrong:
Don’t spell it like this. Second panel:
“Resume” is when you start up again after stopping something. To get that accented “e,” hold down the Alt key while you type 0233 on the numeric keypad.
Maybe I should write a post containing some résumé-writing tips. Interested?
