Tips for customising this hospitality CV template
This ‘hospitality’ style CV template has a very simple layout. The header and footer are utilised to hold the top and bottom scroll graphics, which means they repeat automatically if you need to add more pages. The template is primarily centred, although some of the information is presented in columns or as bullet points. You’ll see that the job title and years worked is divided neatly across the page – this is achieved using a table which can easily be copied and pasted to create further sections. If you’re struggling to see how this works, we suggest turning on text boundaries. To do this, in Word 2010, go to FILE > OPTIONS > ADVANCED OPTIONS and under ‘SHOW DOCUMENT CONTENT’ select ‘SHOW TEXT BOUNDARIES’.
The pictures within this CV template are used under license and should not be reproduced, other than for personal use in connection with the template itself. To ensure that the pictures in this template look great when you save/print, we recommend:
- Go to FILE > OPTIONS > ADVANCED and underneath ‘IMAGE SIZE AND QUALITY’ select ‘DO NOT COMPRESS IMAGES IN FILE’.
- Save the template from Adobe Acrobat as a PDF, or whilst in Word, choose PRINT and then choose ‘PDF’ as the printer.
You’ll see that a custom bullet point is defined for the lists, to add further interest. You can change this quite easily – right click anywhere on a list and choose BULLETS. From there you can define the style for your bullet points.
Each of the individual headers for this CV template uses a scroll motif in a similar style to those used in the header and footer. Finally, as a five star candidate, we’ve given you five stars underneath your name, adding more to the hotel theme.
Overall the idea behind this CV template was to create something reminiscent of a hotel promotion or menu card – creating a theme that attracts the eye without being gimmicky or unprofessional. We hope you love this hospitality CV template and wish you every success with finding your perfect job!
