A cover letter is a one-page accompaniment to a resume or CV expressing your interest in an organization and highlighting experiences that make you the right candidate.
Curriculum Vitaes (CVs)
A curriculum vitae (CV) is like an academic resume used when applying for teaching and research opportunities, fellowships, graduate school or other academic training.
