Your curriculum vitae (CV) or resume is often the first impression you’ll make on a prospective employer, and it’s important to stand out amongst the crowd. These templates provide a range of styles – classical, professional, academic, plain, fancy – which can be adapted to fit your personal preference. Sections for employment history, education, skills, experience, publications and interests can be arranged to best show off your fit for the role you’re applying for, whether you’re a graduate fresh out of university or an experienced professional looking to change career.
I've been asked a few times for the code of my own CV.
Truth is, it was first done many, many years ago, based on the CurVe class. As I picked up tips and tricks, I kept adding and modifying the formatting styles—but I never got round to cleaning it up properly. I wouldn't wish it on anyone to have to read or use the messy code as it was *shudder*.
I got asked about it again recently, and I'm finally able to simplify the thing and put in online on Overleaf (so that other users won't get back to me with "but I don't have this package" issues either! 😉)
p/s: And yes, I got my current position with Overleaf with this CV (the full version of course)!
This template is designed to offer an aesthetically pleasing resume that adheres to a formal and institutional tone, making it suitable for applications to companies and research centers requiring a high degree of professionalism. Navy blue has been chosen as the primary color to align with these objectives. The code is well-documented and annotated, allowing users to easily customize and modify it according to their needs. Please note that the template's content is meant to be humorous and should not be taken literally. We are grateful for your interest in using this template for your professional endeavors.
