"Curriculum vitae", in other words your resume. The question about how long you
plan to stay seems relatively valid to me -- they'd just like to know permanent
a fixture you'd be in the office (easier to plan things on their side). But if
you stayed working for your current company, maybe it wouldn't matter as much.

Subject: somewhat OT: question about UK

Currently in the US, I'm looking at transferring through my current employer
to England. I've made initial contact w/HR reps. and was asked to send my
"C.V." What is that? A cover letter? A Resume??

Any help -- or even more educated guesses than mine -- would be appreciated!

P.S. In addition, they asked me to include wh/not I'm planning on making
this a permanent move. I've understood that potential employers cannot ask
such questions. Is this a law in the UK? (Would it still apply to me if I
continue working for my current American company...just *in* the UK?)
