I know I’ve been neglecting this blog lately during my fellowship. But I hope you, my dear readers, can be soothed by another CV template. This one, for once, does not use paracol at all. It is just an article document class with the twocolumn option.
It is fairly simple but can accommodate lots of information which can come in handy for academic CVs. It is relatively classic and basic but still doesn’t look like any other template either.
Since it doesn’t use paracol, however, getting the black rules (cvrule) to line up beside each other might be difficult, if that’s what you want. Usage with perfectly lined up rules wasn’t intended, but could be achieved by changing the twocolumn to a normal article using the paracol package. The colour can be made into grey or whatever you want. It is indicated in the comments where this can be done.
For listing publications, multiple different versions are available (look closely!). You can try out all the alternatives and then stick with what works best for you.
I hope you like it and maybe have use for it in you next applications.
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.
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 hopefully, it will be available on Overleaf as a template soon as well.
