How to customise our Smart Division CV template

Our Smart Division CV template has been designed to suit a very wide variety of roles – from administration through to high-end management. The choice of the Garamond font immediately gives the curriculum vitae a classic, respectable appearance and suggests you have taken care over the presentation and layout.

Whether you decide to choose this CV template or create one yourself, don’t forget how important the presentation of your credentials are to an employer. We would always recommend to any job seeker the use of our free CV templates. It saves a lot of time, stress and worry, and will guarantee that all the relevant sections are present.

Choosing a CV template may seem like a daunting task. So to help you decide which one suits you the best, please read – Choosing a CV template.

Like all of our free CV templates, this one is easily customisable. Here’s how to customise our Smart Division CV template…

Page border customisation

One way that you might want to edit this CV template is to remove the page border. Then, select the main table and add a border to that in soft grey. This shifts the border inwards on the page which may be necessary for some types of printer.

Alternatively, you might want to remove the page border altogether. This can be helpful if you find your CV template is not printing as it should be. You can adjust page borders by going to the PAGE LAYOUT tab in Microsoft Word and choosing PAGE BORDERS. This also gives you the ability to choose a different border instead, if you’d rather have something fancier!

Change the font

Another easy customisation is to change the font. Whilst we love Garamond (it’s like an updated Times New Roman!), it’s not to everyone’s taste – and you may prefer something different.

Simply go to the Home tab in Microsoft Word and choose Select All. Then, pick the font of your choice from the drop down. Of course, not every font is suitable for your CV or résumé. Some fonts just scream ‘unprofessional’!

If you need help choosing the best font for your job application, have a read of our guide, ‘What is the best résumé font or best CV font to use?

Add a photo

Some people like to include photos on their CV. However, it’s important to realise that including a photo can influence your chances of success. Choosing the wrong picture could hinder your chances of getting an interview. Without a picture in this instance you may have gotten further. Or, a professional picture could actually add more value to your CV. The employer can see you are presentable which could be important for certain industries – hospitality, for example.

For a more comprehensive guide on this subject, please read our article – Should I include a CV photo?

This CV template would lend itself well to a small photo just above your name. For example:

Example of adding a photo to your CV template

It’s really easy to add a photo to your CV template in Microsoft Word. Simply choose the INSERT tab, click ‘PICTURE’ and locate your photo. You can then drag to resize the picture to a suitable size.

We hope you love our Smart Division CV template and the whole team sincerely wish you the best of luck in finding your perfect job!
