Simple Modern CV

After a short absence, I thought I’d treat you to another CV template as an excuse 😉 The template is a simple yet modern academic CV with two columns, using the paracol package for the columns. So you would be able to change the colwidth to asymmetric if you wanted. I used to use this template myself, in a slightly different form, a few years ago. But the code was complicated and I found it not optimal, so I combined the old CV’s general idea with the tabulars from the Hipster CV. The old code, for instance, was done using minipages for ‘columns’ which prevented automated column or page breaks. With a long CV, it became quite a nuisance to control this all manually. That’s why I started looking for an alternative and have switched to paracol for good in these matters.

The Simple Modern CV on github.

This template, different from the colour-clashy Hipster CV, has no colour, but still some of the Hipster’s tabulars for vizalizing your skills. So it’s not a completely plain tabular CV either. Let’s say, it’s a tabular CV but better 😉 While the template has no colour, adding logos to your events will still make it relatively colourful and thus, not strictly classic, why I called it “modern”. Actually I somtimes find the logos suffice to make it fairly “flashy” as opposed a very classic academic CV.

The github repo is here. And also, it is available on Overleaf as a template.

Hope you like it,

and thanks for all the fish!
