What users say about ResumeLab:

I had an interview yesterday and the first thing they said on the phone was: “Wow! I love your CV.”

I love the variety of templates. Good job guys, keep up the good work!

My previous CV was really weak and I used to spend hours adjusting it in Word. Now, I can introduce any changes within minutes. Absolutely wonderful!

Modern CV templates aren’t your thing? Don’t worry, we’ve got a bunch of other articles you might want to check out:

1. Cubic


This modern CV template is versatile enough to cater to the needs of experienced and inexperienced job-seekers alike. Thanks to its optimised CV format, the main section of this template offers plenty of room for your CV profile and work experience sections. In fact, it’s spacious enough to fit in some extra CV sections too, such as certifications on a CV, for example.

Expert Hint: In our CV builder, you can quickly move the sections around to try and see what a different layout will look like. Just drag and drop any section of your CV to any place you like and the contents will automatically readjust to fit into the new arrangement. 

2. Cascade


This is another one of our two-column modern CV templates. The sidebar on the left is where you can put your contact information as well as give your skills proper exposure on a CV. Cascade works great as a chronological CV template that you can expand by several additional sections.

Expert Hint: In some professional situations you may require a different CV outline, e.g. a skills-based CV. In our builder, you can quickly add and move CV sections around to change a chronological CV into a functional one.

3. Crisp


This modern CV template includes CV icons next to the section titles for improved navigation. Thanks to this simple solution the recruiter’s eyes can quickly locate the information they’re after. Also, the CV summary section stretches from margin to margin giving you a lot of room to show off your professional highlights.

Expert Hint: If you wish to give your CV a quick makeover, a simple colour palette change can work wonders. With our CV builder, it’s just a matter of several clicks.

4. Initials


Just like the name suggests, this modern CV template gives prominence to your initials by putting them in a graphical element that resembles a logo. Because of this, it’s a good choice for those who want to build their personal brand.

Also, the template has been designed to maximise the use of space a single page offers. That’s why you can easily fit in sections like software, languages, certifications, volunteer experience, or accomplishments should the employer require such information.

Expert Hint: ResumeLab’s builder offers you a wide range of additional sections you can add. Just pick the one(s) you need and it will appear on your template.

5. Modern


It’s all in the name, again. This modern CV template makes good use of graphical elements to direct the readers’s eye just where you want them to look. The top and bottom bars delineate the two main sections of this CV’s layout.

Your skills are made to stand out thanks to the use of a visual grading scale right next to them. The section headings are marked with arrow-shaped ribbons for improved navigation.

Expert Hint: You can easily change the look of the visual grading scale. These could be squares, circles, stars or bar graphs.

6. Newcast


This modern CV template is also the first single-column CV on our list. One advantage of this kind of arrangement is that it can easily stretch out to the next page without interrupting its natural flow. So, if you’re in the market for a two-page CV template, you need to look no further.

Expert Hint: Not sure about the length? Our piece on how long a CV should be will give you all the answers.

7. Diamond


This modern CV template incorporates a prominent CV header for your name, job title, and contact details. In addition, there’s a timeline that spans across all sections leading the recruiter’s eye from one to the other.

8. Enfold


If Enfold looks strangely familiar to you, you’re right. This clean modern CV template is a mirror image of the Cascade template you’ve seen above. It offers all the same advantages, but from a different perspective.

The ResumeLab builder is more than looks. Get specific content to boost your chances of getting the job. Add job descriptions, bullet points, and skills. Easy. Improve your CV in our CV builder now.

It offers enough room to present your educational or professional highlights. Plus, the subtle visuals strewn here and there give it a distinguished look.

This modern CV template has an instantly recognisable sidebar on the left. It doesn’t just give it an elegant look, but also makes the dates stand out.

12. Influx


This modern CV template includes a header section for your name, job title, and contact details. Because of its single-column layout, it’s a good option for making a two-page CV or even a longer academic CV.

Expert Hint: It’s not enough to just use a great modern CV template. You need to know how to write a CV that will impress the recruiters.

13. Iconic


Simple, clean, and versatile. This is another one of our modern CV templates that follows a single-column layout. The CV icons next to the section titles help the reader navigate the document.

14. Simple


This modern CV template has two columns and the CV header that stretches from margin to margin. Its simple design is distraction-free and lets the reader focus entirely on the content.

Expert Hint: Studies show that recruiters will only spend several seconds scanning your CV. Make sure it’s structure is easy to follow and doesn’t leave the reader confused.

15. Primo


This modern CV template incorporates designer icons and a timeline that leads the reader’s eye from top to bottom. Also, it uses a graphical element with your initials inscribed that gives it a more personal vibe.

16. Valera

Expert Hint: Our builder offers a wide variety of CV fonts to choose from. A safe rule of thumb is to use professional and simple looking fonts—nothing too fancy.
