A curriculum vitae is also referred to as: vita, C.V., or detailed resume. A vitae is a summary of your educational and professional experience and is submitted as part of the academic job application process. A vitae is used by search committees as an initial screening device to see if the applicant possesses the qualifications necessary for the available position. The vitae, therefore, should reflect the position for which you are applying.
A vitae sometimes differs from a resume in name only. A vitae is most commonly used to apply for positions in higher education. However, a resume is more often used in business settings and tends to be brief and more skills/accomplishments oriented.
Option "A" is best for the candidate who desires a great deal of control over the use of his/her references. (i.e. Helpful when using different references for different types of positions).
The ordering of category headings will differ depending on the type of position you are applying for. In general, the curriculum vitae should read most relevant to least relevant. For example, if you are applying for a position requiring more research responsibilities, research related information should appear towards the beginning of your curriculum vitae.
