That is the technical meaning.
A Resume is nothing but a list or a summary of everything you have been up to.
You could not possibly put up everything you ever did or accomplished (you probably could not even remember everything) so a Resume is a collection of those memories that are important and relevant to what you are applying for.
A typical resume will have the following:
- your personal details
- your contact details
- your education
- your experience
- your interests
- your accolades and accomplishments
- any other information that is relevant to the position you are applying for.
A resume is also known as CV or Curriculum Vitae.
A resume is generally accompanied by a Resume Cover Letter, Recommendation Letters or Copies of Relevant Certifications etc.
