What’s new with these one-page templates?
- We’re trying a range of different fonts (in the past we’ve stuck to Garamond, Tahoma and other safe bets)
- Different layout techniques
- We’re trying to make skills bars easier to edit (slidable for example) so you can better represent your proficiency in different skills
Are one page CV templates the way to go?
You’ll see with our new designs that there’s a focus towards the new trend of one page CV templates with the view that employers simply don’t have time to get past the first page. This isn’t appropriate for all jobs – very senior personnel may feel that they need more space. But for the majority of jobs, an employer only wants to see a few brief details to be confident that you meet the job specification. More people than ever before are going for the one page curriculum vitae or résumé template, so think carefully about whether a single page would work best for you.
Our one page CVs rock, because we’re a completely free service – there’s no registration required to download your template, and there’s no catch. As long as you’re using the CV to help you get your dream job, we’re on your side.
We can take away your stress
We want to make your job search as easy and as stress free as possible. That’s why we create so many wonderful, eye catching CV templates so you have a great amount of choice. Do you know what’s the most stressful part of job hunting? It’s the part where you have to write an amazing CV. With so many years of experience, a whole host of fantastic skills, and qualifications taking up the entire page; you’d be right in thinking all the hard work has been done over the years. The real problem however is making those credentials look unique and eye catching on a CV, whilst keeping the attention of the employer. So how do you do that?
Free CV templates save a lot of time
A huge chunk of time is taken up trying to figure out how to make your skills look great on the page. You don’t want to forget any of the important sections either! That’s why choosing a free CV template is the best way to go. It takes away all the stress and worry, and allows you to focus on the content. Being able to instantly see what your final CV will or could look like has many advantages. If you choose to go it alone with your design you run the risk of taking too long and missing out on an opportunity.
Our free CV templates can be used for many different things. You can simply copy and paste your details straight into a CV template and choose to edit nothing. Or, if you want to make a few adjustments then go right ahead. Many people also visit our website just for inspiration, and use one of our templates to create their own. Whichever you choose we thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and we hope that our helpful guides and articles are a welcome addition on top of our large and unique range of free CV templates.
