"Résumé" 是法文"summarize"的意思，因此 résumé就是個人背景、經歷的總結。 "CV" 是拉丁片語 "Curriculum Vitae"的縮寫，意同 “一個人的生命過程”。 一般來講，résumé是教育背景及工作經驗的摘要且通常不超過兩頁。 但是，大部分的雇主及美國學校偏好résumé少於一頁。 Résumé應該只含教育背景、工作經驗、特殊技術或其他專長的基本資訊， 而CV則是更注重細節所以可能內容多達 4-5頁。在CV中，主要訴求是概述在每個工作中自己所擔的角色或責任，CV也可包含任何你想要呈現的經驗、學位、研究、獎項、出版物、發表及其他成就的資訊。

U.S. News & World Report published a must-read article on recommendation letters today that included my own thoughts on the subject. Here are the relevant sections:
“For prospective business students, letters of recommendation are the part of the MBA application process over which applicants have the least control. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t significant steps that business school applicants can take to influence the impact of their references, business school admissions experts say. …
Paul Bodine, who runs Paul Bodine Admissions Consulting in San Diego, has observed four common misconceptions when it comes to MBA recommendations and offers tips to avoid them:
1. Titles won’t dazzle: Applicants sometimes erroneously assume that a reference’s job title or b-school affiliation is more important than his or her connection to the applicant and ability to advocate on the applicant’s behalf, says Bodine, who is author of Great Applications for Business School. “Schools are sincere when they say they want letters from people who have directly supervised the applicant over time,” he says.
2. Praise should be specific: Applicants and recommenders also have a bad habit of considering letters of recommendation to be “pro forma” exercises, wherein b-schools “just want a lot of hot air about people skills, vision, [and] ‘achieving whatever he sets his mind to,’” Bodine says. Instead, schools want “factual, concrete anecdotes that demonstrate that the applicant has the skills that the recommender says [he or she] does,” he says.

Writing the Personal Statement – Start by Brainstorming
By Jack McDermott – Top Admit Consulting
One of the most difficult elements of a graduate school application to the United States, Canada or Britain is the personal statement. Although some specialized graduate programs have specific questions (to ensure you do not send your generic personal statement) the personal statement is generally very similar: it asks you to tell something about yourself.
In some ways, it may be the most important element. Generally your GPA, Undergraduate College, Extracurricular Activities, Awards, Work Experience and Graduate School Admissions Tests have already been decided (or soon will be). Your personal statement is the one thing that you can still perfect that will make a difference in the admissions process.
