A CV is a life history, in the Brit sense of things, at least. I've been in
the field for 20 years; with a CV, I include everything I've done in the
profession. I've seen CVs of people that included every course they took at
each level of public school (British public schools are somewhat different
from our definition), A-levels and O-levels, side jobs, volunteer work,
papers written, applications made, etc. There must be a book (or likely 400
books) "out there" on the preparation of a CV. Maybe has an article.

For a resume, I cut and cut and cut to get the damn thing down to 2 pages.
And, I don't use 12- or 11-point typeface, either, for that.
