A totally different kind of CV Template
We provide a CV template package which will help you create your own CV to a professional standard. Most people are concerned about using a template for CV writing, and rightly so. But our CV template package is totally different from any other. When the step by step Guidance Notes are followed it is simply not possible to detect that a template has been used at all.
Most other CV templates are based upon a table format, but ours are not. A table format is not a satisfactory solution because the resulting CV is bound to be steretyped and unattractive. This is why most experts will advise against using a template for CV writing. It is true, especially in the case of free CV templates, that they can do more harm than good.
Here is the good news
We have recognised that there is a problem with most CV Templates so, after a great deal of work and research, we have come up with a solution which will give you the help you need with writing your own CV, but without any of the drawbacks.
Our CV templates are based upon an outline Word document which does not make use of tables at all, making it impossible for the reader to detect that a template has been used. The secret of their success is in working with the in-depth Guidance Notes which are also included in the package. These Guidance Notes are very comprehensive and include up to date detailed advice and examples for you to follow.
