Easy to use template
Easy to use template, free and one-click download. Multiple templates made it easy to find the right one for me. Export to DOCX allowed me to create extra space at the bottom to accommodate hand-written signature. Highly recommended.

What makes a great CV template


The best CV template is always the one that works for you – whether that means an expanded skills section, plenty of room for employment history or even a bold background color. You should be equally drawn to the presentation of the template and it’s functionality. After all, the goal is to showcase your unique strengths inside of a polished layout.

There are a few things to look for when choosing a great CV template. First, consider your experience. Are you likely to need plenty of room to express your achievements in your previous positions? Or does a template with more space for skills and education seem to fit you better? Look for templates that place the focus on your strengths and will draw the hiring manager’s eye to the areas you want to highlight.

The header is also one of the biggest considerations for a great CV template. Depending on your job and field, you may want to catch the hiring manager’s attention with a template that’s bold and bright. The header is likely the place to add a splash of color or even a photo of you if appropriate for the country where you plan to work. When in doubt, a neutral template can give you all the advantages of good style without coming across as eccentric.

CV templates for every job

If all jobs were the same, how boring the world would be! That’s why we’ve created CV templates that can work for every experience level, field and job title. All that’s left to do is choose the one that speaks to you. A great CV template can help show off your personality and professional style, so make sure to pick a template that captures the message you want to send to the employer.

The first step is to take into account the employer’s image and branding. What tone do they use on their website? Is the logo full of fun, bright colors or does it reflect a more reserved approach? Once you have a better idea of the company’s values and style, you can choose a template that aligns with their tone. Some companies will prefer a bolder approach whereas others appreciate a toned-down CV template.

When in doubt, it’s a good idea to go with a more subdued CV template. That’s because even a simple template can offer a great mix of style and functionality. If you haven’t quite gotten a feel for the company tone, a neutral template with strong lines or a bold font can help you find the balance – a CV template that’s professional but never boring!
