CV Layout

There is no such thing as a typical CV layout. Indeed, there are a great many CV layouts, and a multitude of CV templates available.

Another thing to remember is that there is not even a common agreement on what is the best CV layout. Some are long and cluttered with many different sections. On the other hand, some are shorter and more selective.



The general consensus is that more selective, concise, legible and presentable layouts are better, and for several reasons. First and foremost, they give better first impressions - and this is significant because not every CV gets read. Secondly, more legible/presentable CV formats help get your message across better. Again, this is significant because the way your message comes across directly affects how you sell yourself - and you need to sell yourself on your CV!

On this website you will find a variety of CV examples as well as a broad range of free CV templates. And you can choose your preferred layout from amongst the CV samples given.
