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 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.
This is a spinoff of the Hipster CV featuring new visual elements, especially the timeline and the progress circles.
The colour options are like in the Hipster CV but here, a "bluebeige" version was added as 'the main colour theme'. Not all Hipster colours look great with this, but verylight, lighthipster and allblack are quite ok.
Compared to the original and Simple Hipster CVs, it is generally less crammed and thus is a bit lighter on the eye due to the greater amount of white space.
The timeline functionality is not yet perfect, but it allows for lots of customization. It will be updated once I've come up with something more effective. Then I will also take care to make it a bit more user-friendly. (Thus far, it's a little bit complicated, sorry about that.)
The original Hipster CV is here (Github repo – read up more on the initial thought with it here & here).
And then, there is also the newer and lighter version of it, called Simple Hipster CV.
This github repo is here.
This is a CV template written to offer a resume which is
visual and modern
but also simple in code so it can be easily modified by a skilled user
all the actual CV info ("content") is stored in main.tex, so you don't have to go looking for it in some sub-directory
I called it the "Hipster CV" for obvious reasons: It's like many hipster-ish CV templates out there and use for strictly academic / very 'classic' applications might not be advisable.
It uses the paracol environment for the left column, so this column is an actual column which will continue if you put in content for more than one page. That way, it can be used for multi-page CVs as well (unlike the popular Alice in Wonderland example). This template was largely inspired by this "Twenty Seconds" / Alice in Wonderland CV template. But I tried to improve it in terms of code clarity / simplicity and the fact that the sidebar can continue for multiple pages without repeating itself, etc.
This template is available with the following colour options: verylight, pastel, lighthipster, darkhipster, allblack, grey.
In terms of being very visual, it owes inspiration to Jan Küster's Infographic-CV.
This is a blog post about it.
And the github repo where it will be updated, etc.
