Thanks Colin,

I must say the question was mine:

Thanks for definitions anyway.

I was trying to treat the matter very pragmatically. So what is the
CURRENT, SPACE/TIME/-SPECIFIC understanding of

1. "cv"
1a. cv (without quotes)
2. autobiography (implicitly in quotes)
3. resume

in any of subscribers countries? Sure it must differ from pure dictionary
meaning. I just noticed those three terms in recent postings to techwr-l and
inferred that the word itself (cv or resume or..) might imply the employers'
expectations as to its outline and length.

Also, I'm interested more in hiring/comissioning staff's attitudes than in
"academee".

Rgds,
