I never really understood the difference. Or, I guess I should say, with my work experience, the difference is negligible. I mean, a resume I would give for a career or one I'd give to, say, a retailer would obviously be different.
That said, I don't have a lengthy list of career-like qualifications, so my CV and resume are identical.
I've applied for some jobs that say CV, and some that say resume. These are poli-sci/social justice type jobs though, if that applies.

I may be wrong about that one, in fact I can't find anything to support me yet. Still it doesn't matter because of course you're going to lie.

I would say those would be more likely to need a CV but honestly I have no idea. This is my first job ever and I probably won't be looking around for a while, so I'm not the most reliable source of information. I have been told that they are different, though.

I only managed to watch a few episodes of Season 3 when it was on TV, but slowly going through all of the episodes on the internet as we speak. Great stuff.
When was it on TV? STUPID ABC WAITING AGES TO SHOW THE GOOD ENGLISH SHOWS.
I wouldn't even have known there was a season 3 if it hadn't been mentioned on the forum a few months ago.

Or did you mean actually going and typing in French shrug in a google search?

It's easy to forget that a lot of people don't know all of the same languages as you.

Unfortunately I only know Quebecois insults. Saying tabernacle is about the least impressive insult you can think of.

I know how to say "go to the fucked" in Spanish, but everyone just gives me weird looks when I say it because that doesn't make any sense.

I can call someone bitch on a dick in Russian. If they don't know what it means, then they just look at me funny since it's Russian. If they know what it means, they laugh because of how it is phrased.

It's more effective if you pronounce it tabernak, otherwise you're just an Anglophone trying to swear in French (Quebecois are cruel). You might also want to try maudit (damn) and viarge (I think it's some kind of reference to the Virgin Mary) if you ever find yourselves wanting to swear in Quebec.

In France some good words to use might be merde (shit), zut (damn), salaud or bâtard (bastard), trou de col (asshole) and con (idiot).

I can tell someone to eat pussy in Korean. I used to be able to tell someone to eat cock except I forgot the word for cock.
