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.

A CV and letter class which is easy for a recruiter to read and find the information they want. This will increase the chances of getting that interview.
There are a number of settings in the .tex file which can be altered to personalise the template.
The Monocol Navbar CV is a CV template inspired by simple websites with a main infinite scroll body and a little navigation at the side. Only that here, the navigation is the contact info. The image can easily be taken away if not wanted or needed (but it’s still customary in German speaking areas). Apart from being inspired by simple website navbars, inspiration credit also goes to Jan Kuester’s Left Sidebar CV with the paracol separation rule.

A one row academic CV template.
Having gotten feedback on the Two Row Academic CV, I made this version with only one column, a page counter in the footer and an even more 'serious' look (no more colours, little icons, etc.).
The idea is that if you are allowed more than just one page resumé-style (where two columns make sense to make the most out of the available space), it might be favourable to have just one column for improved overview and readability. The slightly bigger font is a bit easier on the eyes of tired hiring committees and the page numbering makes sure that a lost page won't go unnoticed.
For listing publications, multiple different versions are available (look closely!). You can try out all the alternatives and then stick with what works best for you. (They are the same one as in the previous Two Column CV). Remove the photo if that's not customary where you're applying.

ModernFancyCV is a resume template for 2020 that aims to fulfill and surpass the expectations of any HR. All important information fits on a single page while maintaining clarity. It is aimed primarily at recent college grads, but everyone else can simply swap the "Education" and "Experience" sections and is ready to go.
Of course I suggest you swap out the "Sports Teams" in the Bubble-graphic for something more skills-oriented like "Programming Languages" or "Software". It´s totally up to you. Unfortunately, poor Doug can't code...
