10 free CV templates to brighten your Thursday

Thursday sucks - worst day of the week

We think Thursday is the worst possible day and right around now you might be thinking about getting a new job. If this is you, you’re in luck – we’ve got 10 lovely fresh CV templates to help you on your job seeking way.

Why should you use a CV template?

Rather than sitting for hours in front of a blank screen trying to figure out how to create your CV, why not consider choosing a CV template. All you then have to do is insert your details.

It’s fast and easy, and saves a lot of time and effort which could otherwise be better spent on the content of your CV.

Takes away the stress and worry

Writing a CV can be a very stressful process, and that’s why using a CV template can take away a lot of that stress and pressure and re-focus your attention to where it matters. Our CV templates have been created by professionals; are modern and fresh, and some have even been specifically designed with your career in mind.

Provides inspiration with example content

Did you know that some of our free CV templates have been designed specifically for a role or career? You do now!

With many of our CV templates also career focused, you might just find that we have already created a template which is perfect for you and your chosen industry. An employer will often like to see a more creative and modern design, and when your template is geared towards a specific role and industry, it will certainly have a positive effect on your chances of success. Do you want to be memorable? That’s just what our free career CV templates will do!

So rather than simply create lots and lots of designs for you to choose from (which we have), you can also delve into particular career focused CV templates. This may just give you the edge you’re looking for over your competition. Struggling to get an interview? Choose a career focused CV template to help get you to the next stage.

Ensures your CV is high quality

Employers are now expecting a much higher quality of CV in today’s competitive job market. So choosing to create your own design could be a risky strategy. Selecting a CV template is a far more guaranteed way of having a CV that’s not only professionally presentable, but also ensures you have all the relevant sections an employer would expect to see.

What happens if I miss a section out that’s expected? Your chances of getting an interview have just gone down the drain. You can’t afford to make a silly mistake and miss out an important section. That won’t happen if you choose a CV template and make life much easier.

Sets the correct foundations

What font should I choose? How large should I make my headings? Should I use bullet points?

All of the difficult questions you would often ask yourself when writing a CV have been answered instantly. By using a ready made CV template you don’t have to worry over the details – whether large or small. The font has been chosen, the layout created, the design completed, the colour scheme selected, the font size and margins chosen – everything has been taken care of. But don’t forget, you can customise, delete, remove and edit anything you want!
