Your curriculum vitae (CV) is your personal marketing tool, so presentation, readability and content are important. It should provide prospective employers with sufficient information about you, your skills and abilities, so they can decide whether you are suitable for a position. However, it should not be an essay.
Your covering letter or application
The covering letter or application is a chance to elaborate. It is an opportunity to pick out information that is particularly impressive or relevant to the role and shout about it.
