This modern CV template is eye-catching and impeccably professional and will win you an unbeatable competitive edge. Most CVs are dull, hard-to-read, text-only lists of research and teaching experience and other credentials.
Our modern CV templates, including this one from our Modern Advantage Collection have an updated and modern look and feel that blends the best of both a traditional CV and a modern resume. This combination is guaranteed to make your qualifications shine.
In North America, the words CV (curriculum vitae) and resume are often used interchangeably to describe a document that is actually in the format of a resume. There is a fundamental difference between a resume and a CV. They are not the same. In North America, typically only people who work in academia (both teaching and research positions) and some medical and scientific positions will require a CV.
Our modern CV templates make it easy for you to create a new CV or give your existing CV a contemporary facelift. Just follow the prompts in the Microsoft Word template and either insert your new content or copy and paste from your old CV to your new, modern CV. Then, when you are happy with it, save it as a .DOCX document and export to a .PDF document. With these two CV formats, you will have everything you need for your applications.
Distinctive Resume Templates’ modern, hybrid CVs provide space to set the focus of your CV and summarize your research and academic interests and expertise, along with your most important research skills and knowledge. Then, like a traditional CV, the emphasis of the rest of the document will be on your academic accomplishments and credentials.
Every CV will be as unique as the individual. This modern CV template includes the most common categories and it is easy to add or delete sections, change the order of them, or rename sections. The length of a CV is also variable and in general, they will be longer than a traditional resume. Because they require a comprehensive listing of your research and academic credentials, it would not be uncommon for a CV to be four or more pages in length.
It is easy to add or remove pages from this modern CV template. As you keep adding content to your CV and the template will add pages as required, with the header automatically included.
Like all of our templates, you can also easily change the CV color scheme with just a couple of mouse clicks. We provide instructive video tutorials with every purchase of our resume and CV templates to show you how to easily do this yourself. Here are just a few of the color options for this CV.
The Modern Advantage CV Collection includes an optional bundle of matching documents, including a professional biography template, a references sheet template, and even a cover letter template.
