Two Row Academic CV

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.

The github repo is here. Be sure to try it out as a template on Overleaf!

I hope you like it and maybe have use for it in you next applications.

So long and: THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH!

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.

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.

Hope you like it,

and thanks for all the fish!

The Simple Academic Resumé. A play in 3 acts

Dear all,

you might already know the Simple Academic Resumé/CV from Twitter or GitHub. It is available as a template on Overleaf now, so I wanted to take this occasion to formally introduce it to you again. It also has a new third style which you might not be familiar with yet.

simple-acad-cv
This new version is quite colourful with the rules. Or at least it can be. You can just choose black or grey as a colour. With all of this colour, it probably doesn’t really qualify as ‘academic’ anymore. 😉 Try it out here on Overleaf.

I don’t know if if love the name. Thinking back now, I might have called it something else but since has already been out there on Github quite a while, I didn’t want to change it anymore. My second thoughts now stem from the fact that I would like to make a template which really deserves the title ‘academic’. This one was named academic only because I published it the day after the Hipster CV and  somebody on Twitter noted that they would think it very bad style to use such a template in a academic context. That’s why I got inspired to make a more simple template and called this one ‘academic’. But there’s nothing especially academic about it really. 😉

Well, I hope you enjoy it anyway.

New CV Template: All black hipster

Pretending I did not have any more pressing matters at hand, I used my day off today to create new Hipster CV theme based on my current absolute favourite: the Developer CV from LaTeX Templates. Surprisingly, this one apparently hasn’t gone viral yet. Which I totally don’t get. It has inspired the allblack version of hipstercv. But I actually think it’s so good that it will lend inspiration for another CV template even. So stay tuned for that.

Try it out directly here on Overleaf 😉

 

classic-hipstercvs
These are the ‘classic’ darkhipster and lighthipster templates.

So anyways, here is the Hipster CV and you can now conveniently change between colour themes. There are currently six themes: verylight, allblack, grey, pastel, lighthipster, darkhipster.

pastels-hipstercv
These are the ‘pastels’: verylight and pastel

Also, I used the opportunity to finally fix the error in the original hipster template pointed out by Peter Flynn (@docum3nt on Twitter). You can find it on the same old the hipstercv-github which now actually has a new shiny preview section in the readme 😉

dark-hipster-cvs
And finally, the new ‘blacks’ I got inspired to create today: grey and allblack

So, I hope you can use this template. Let me know how you like it or whether I should add something different.

Best,

your Ninja

Hipster CV – A Template

Dear all,

sorry you haven’t been hearing from me so much lately. It’s been quite busy. To make it up to you, I wanted to share my hipster CV template on this occasion 😉 I will probably explain it later and also probably modify it in a way that it’s easiert to use for a beginner. If you want to use it and but don’t feel comfortable with how the template works, just check where the text you are looking to replace is in the main.tex and replace it with your content. That way, you should get away with fairly limited LaTeX skills and still be able to use the template if you want it.

hipster-cv

 

It is available on the newly created LaTeX Ninja Github! The template is not exactly the same as shown in the Teaser: LaTeX Resumé Template Preview.

hipster-cv-github

 

So you can look forward to more versions which will be kind of the same style. But I now have so many different elements that I could fill at least 10 different CV templates. Since I didn’t want to fall victim to my own perfectionism, I dedided to share the template now even though it could probably be better. It also doesn’t really comply with my own standards regarding good code, etc. 😉 Well, you can’t always have it all.

It is, however, more of a Saturday afternoon fun thing I did. I won’t give any recommendations as to whether it will be considered as appropriate in your field of work to actually use this CV 😉

Also, I hope I am allowed to have the Jack Sparrow images in the example. I am not so sure about it however. Come visit me in prison if this should go wrong 😉
