Curriculum Vitae

So, I learned something new today. A rarity, I know. But, it does happen.

Today, I learned what a curriculum vitae is after being asked to prepare one to submit with a personal financial statement.

Well, if you're in the dark about it as I was, let me enlighten you. The words are Latin for "course of a life."

In other words, "a glorified resume'."

They want contact info, personal data, employment history, educational background, professional achievements, publications, affiliations, language skills, hobbies, etc.

So, why did they have to go all Latin on me?!

A bit pompous, if you ask me.

Oh, well. Live and learn. (Then add the details to your curriculum vitae!)
