Blue layout general CV template – so what’s changed?
We like to keep our readers up to date with the latest CV templates. In our new design above we’d like to inform you of what’s changed and how great this new one is. Read on to find out more…
More space for social
It’s now more important than ever before to demonstrate to employers that you are immersed in your industry, and particularly for certain jobs (Politics, Marketing and Law are examples). We’ve therefore included a lot more space for your social profiles on this updated version.
Space for references
Although we always include space for two references at the bottom of our CV templates, we’ve also included space in this version for small quotes from those references which adds to your credibility. You won’t come across another CV that does this – it adds a nice touch!
Space for achievements
Nowadays, with applicants ten-a-penny, recruiters are more interested in what you’ve achieved than what your job description was. That’s why we’ve included a generous space on page two for you to wow employers with what you’ve achieved in previous roles. Your past performances and accolades are more likely to impress than a simple list of skills, tasks and responsibilities. You need to show the employer what you’re capable of.
A better font
Whilst we love Helvetica, we think there are lots of other fonts that offer a crisp, easy-to-read experience. Open Sans is a firm favourite (as you can probably tell from the number of CVs we have which use it) and that’s why we’ve switched to this lovely free font in the updated version. Furthermore, you can revert back to Helvetica if you wish, or any other font of your choosing.
If you’re not sure which font is best to use, here’s a great infographic from the Undercover Recruiter.
There’s more space
Today’s CV layout standards require clean fresh designs and our previous design felt a little cluttered. That’s why this updated version has a lot more space, making it more legible and easy-on-the-eye.
A second page
Our original version of this template had just one page, and our updated version has two. Because the template has been built with tables, it’s a little tricky adding a second page yourself. We’ve done all the work for you so you have as much room as you need (and sections can easily be taken away by deleting rows).
Our old version of the template had place-holder information – the new version has real-life examples to help you write your own awesome CV!
