  • To add a further line to the education section, simply tab through the lines – when you reach the final line, tab again and a further line will be added.
  • If you copy and paste a heading, make sure you get BOTH ROWS (each heading is made up of two rows).

Who is this web designer CV template for?

Print on high quality paper using a good printer that is capable of printing both black and colour for the perfect CV.

Does paper quality really matter for a CV?

Although most job seekers email their CV to a recruitment agency or employer, you may also have the option to hand it in directly. This would work really well for a retail position, for example.

You should never underestimate the power of personally handing your CV to the employer. The impact it can have is far greater than applying electronically. It will make you much more memorable, and puts a personality to an application.

If this is something you want to try, make sure you use quality paper for your CV. The standard budget A4 paper you can buy tends to be too thin. The feel of the paper in the employer’s hand is very important. If it’s too thin it will give off a ‘cheap’ vibe and will not project professionalism.

Thicker paper has a much better feel to it, and projects professionalism and creates a quality application. Although the employer may not realise it when reading your CV, the thickness and quality of the paper makes a difference.

Consciously, but more often than not subconsciously, the employer will instantly judge your presentation within a matter of seconds. From your clothes and appearance, to the quality of the paper; your overall presentation will be scrutinised.
