The purpose of this template is to stand out from other candidates and get an interview. You need a CV that attracts attention but isn’t too creative. The person reading it should, at first glance, find the information they need; this means that each CV sent should be targeted to the job vacancy, the company and the position available.
The jobseeker with no experience will highlight his application with his education and knowledge, while the experienced professional will rely more on his professional background and know-how.
Here is a modern CV that takes inspiration from " timelines" typically found on social media. We've chosen simple font with dark contrasted grey lettering and green yellow titles to give it more lightness, but once downloaded you can fully customize this template according to your preferences: typeface, character size/spacing between blocks, etc...
Make sure that your curriculum vitae remains easy to read by not overloading it with too many unnecessary details. It should preferably fit on one page and, of course, not contain any language mistakes! Also avoid eccentricities, exotic fonts and too aggressive colours. Choosing an original CV is often a good choice, as long as you don't overdo it, it's a subtle balance to find!
