Your curriculum vitae (CV) or resume is often the first impression you’ll make on a prospective employer, and it’s important to stand out amongst the crowd. These templates provide a range of styles – classical, professional, academic, plain, fancy – which can be adapted to fit your personal preference. Sections for employment history, education, skills, experience, publications and interests can be arranged to best show off your fit for the role you’re applying for, whether you’re a graduate fresh out of university or an experienced professional looking to change career.
This is a simple resume theme I made for quick and easy submission to most job sites. It incorporates simple, clean lines drawn only with text characters to make it compatible with all PDF readers and it is designed to be easily scrapable by ATS programs. It uses only the CM Bright font and >tabularx, so it is easily modifiable with clearly defined sections for drawing separators.
This simple Resume/CV template features a large sidebar with key information about you neatly presented for quick perusal with a simple and customizable timeline. Your main skills can be quickly highlighted using progress bars with ticks ranging from novice(0) to expert(5), this is particularly useful for programming languages and other skills where time is required for mastery. The template body is then presented delimited by large colored section titles (alternating gray and blue). Inside these, you can further divide content by subsection or simply write paragraphs. Lists of achievements or timelines can be constructed using one of two environments: long lists with descriptions or short one-line lists. The template features commented code for making it into a two-page Resume/CV where the document body simply continues onto the next page and the sidebar is displayed again on the second page.
