The work at home resume is a summary of job experience, education, and job skills as well as information on home office setup. The work at home resume differs from a traditional resume in that it has one additional section for specific hardware and software that may be available for use by the applicant for the job position and also exemplifies the strength of the candidate as far as reliability and independence. For each company the candidate has worked for, strong personal project management skills should be listed and proven.
A resume differs from a curriculum vitae because it is a summary and it is considered acceptable to disclude information and skip dates in favor of listing only pertinent information. A curriculum vitae is the total story of one person's life from education to awards and even includes a picture for the potential employers viewing.
