10 free CV templates to brighten your Thursday

We often think of Monday as being the worst day of the week. After a lovely long weekend of sleeping in and doing whatever you want, you’re back in the office and faced with whatever fresh hell your boss or clients have dreamt up for you over the weekend.

But there’s lots of reasons not to hate Monday. First, you’ve enjoyed two days of rest and you’ve got more energy now than you’ll have any other working day. In fact, it’s likely you’ll be more productive Monday than any other day (and research by productivity company Flow actually backs this up).

Thursday, on the other hand, deserves your hate. By the time Thursday morning arrives, you’ve dealt with three full days of challenges and you’re ready for a break – but it’s NOT THE WEEKEND! Not even close! You’ve still got two full days to deal with before you can even contemplate breaking open that bottle of Jacob’s Creek and binge watching Age of Resistance into the early hours.

Thursday Sucks

For that reason we think Thursday is the worst possible day and right around now you might be thinking about getting a new job. If this is you, you’re in luck – we’ve got 10 lovely fresh CV templates to help you on your job seeking way, covering a range of roles from Bartending to Health Care. Like all of our CV templates, you can adapt these CVs to work for just about any industry and role. So what’s holding you back? Use your Thursday to take a step away from the rut and one step closer to your dream job! Enjoy 🙂
