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.
This is a CV template written to offer a resume which is
visual and modern
but also simple in code so it can be easily modified by a skilled user
all the actual CV info ("content") is stored in main.tex, so you don't have to go looking for it in some sub-directory
I called it the "Hipster CV" for obvious reasons: It's like many hipster-ish CV templates out there and use for strictly academic / very 'classic' applications might not be advisable.
It uses the paracol environment for the left column, so this column is an actual column which will continue if you put in content for more than one page. That way, it can be used for multi-page CVs as well (unlike the popular Alice in Wonderland example). This template was largely inspired by this "Twenty Seconds" / Alice in Wonderland CV template. But I tried to improve it in terms of code clarity / simplicity and the fact that the sidebar can continue for multiple pages without repeating itself, etc.
This template is available with the following colour options: verylight, pastel, lighthipster, darkhipster, allblack, grey.
In terms of being very visual, it owes inspiration to Jan Küster's Infographic-CV.
This is a blog post about it.
And the github repo where it will be updated, etc.
