Default CV for research

Hello ,
Im emailing professors asking for a research opportunity.Im attaching my CV in the email .I have few doubts regarding the CV .
1)Which one should we attach .. CV or Resume ?
2)My CV was initially 4 pages long and now i made it to 2 pages long so that it would be easy to go through .
Ideally how long should the CV be when asking for a research position ?
3) If we r attaching the CV ,should there be a objective section mentioned in it ?

Thanks ,

Does not matter whether it is the cv or resume. It best to be as comprehensive as possible though, as the professors have no clear idea of your background and interests. Yes you should definitely include your objectives or career goals, and how you think research would help you achieve those goals. Also, don't start sending your cv or resume as that can rub some people off in the wrong way. Ask for any research opportunities by expressing your interests, frame it well as you want to get their attention. Say that will be more than happy to forward your resume/cv if they wish to see it and they will get back to u if ur lucky. Good luck in ur search.
