The first two weeks of January are always comparatively quiet on the CV Template Master site, in contrast with the rest of the year. Perhaps it’s because people have had a great break for the holiday (we hope so!) and have returned to work refreshed and renewed. But things soon pick up, and that’s why the CV Template Master team have been busier than ever uploading some incredible free CV templates to supercharge your job search.
Here’s a look at our NEW January templates for the week beginning December 31st and ending January 6th. If one of your New Year’s resolutions was to land a new job, we hope one of our templates helps you to take a step in the right direction. Happy New Year!

06.01.2019 : Administrator CV template
Our two-page Administrator CV template has a motif that could be replaced with a photo, space for quotes from your references or key achievements, and a very attractive background.
05.01.2019 : Teacher CV template
Our two-page ‘teacher’ CV template is presented on ‘graph paper for a school-type theme – it has space for quotes from references, a school-themed motif that could be replaced with a photo if you prefer, and plenty of space for all your information. It’s easy to expand this template if you need more room.
04.01.2019 : Science CV template
Our lovely two-page two-column science-themed CV template has a molecule background (not visible in this photo), a shaded sidebar with room for your contact info and quotes from reference, plus a huge section for skills. This is a great choice for someone looking to place a lot of emphasis on skills, perhaps because it is appropriate to the job they are seeking or because they don’t have a lot of work experience. Remember, skills can be gained during study and through extra curricular activities such as volunteering and community projects!
03.01.2019 : Engineering CV template
Our very attractive Engineering CV template has a super cogs motif that can be traded out for a picture if you’d rather have one. The colour scheme from the motif is carried over to the quotation marks and headings, giving it a lovely complete feel. There’s an engineering drawings background too, although it’s subtle and doesn’t get in the way of your information.

You must do this before you choose a free CV template
Customising our free CV templates has never been easier. If you’re not 100% happy with one of our templates and want to make a few tweaks, then go ahead! They are not set in stone and you can decide which sections to keep, which font to have, and much more. One thing is for certain, and that’s making a great first impression with your CV. If you want to stand a great chance of getting through to the interview stage you need to take note of a few important things.
Take your time and choose wisely
It’s easy to get drawn into the wonderful world of free CV templates, but don’t make a snap decision. We advise that you take your time and spend a few minutes searching through our CV templates so you can make the right choice. Not every CV template we create will be right for you, and in fact you may only find a handful that suit your needs. However, you only need just the one to give your credentials a boost.
So take your time and don’t just pick the first one you see. The presentation of your CV is just as important as the content, so don’t rush the process and take a measured approach.
Go for a bit of colour
Did you know that more and more employers are picking colourful CVs over the traditional black and white? Whilst some occupations benefit more from the normal black and white design, the creative industry is expecting to see something unique. So if you’re applying for a creative role you could be missing out if you don’t choose from one of our fantastic colourful CV templates.
