Your curriculum vitae (CV) or resume is often the first impression you’ll make on a prospective employer, and it’s important to stand out amongst the crowd. These templates provide a range of styles – classical, professional, academic, plain, fancy – which can be adapted to fit your personal preference. Sections for employment history, education, skills, experience, publications and interests can be arranged to best show off your fit for the role you’re applying for, whether you’re a graduate fresh out of university or an experienced professional looking to change career.

This is an bare bones CV created using altacv.cls (v1.7.1, 25 Aug 2023), which is based on the style of Marissa Mayer's
CV created by BusinessInsider using enhancv. (You can find a re-created example of that CV using AltaCV here.)
Examples of producing a publication list and referees section is provided on the second page.
Is this template ATS-friendly? I can't make any claims; but the accsupp package has been used to provide readable replacement text for the icons when it's copied-pasted from the PDF in Acrobat Reader. You can also try running
pdftotext -raw sample.pdf
pdftotext -layout sample.pdf
on the output PDF, to inspect the text-only output.
This is a new version of Hipster CV ( Github repo – read up more on the initial thought with it here & here).
The idea was to create a template a little less flashy than the original Hipster CV but still somehow in the same spirit of being modern and unusual. The colour themes are the same as in hipster, but this time, there is yet another version "withoutsidebar" for a version where the sidebar has no background colour (there will still be a sidebar, sorry for the confusing naming).
It was also inspired by friggeri CV and twenty CV as well as the developer CV
The github repo for Simple Hipster is here.
I've been asked a few times for the code of my own CV.
Truth is, it was first done many, many years ago, based on the CurVe class. As I picked up tips and tricks, I kept adding and modifying the formatting styles—but I never got round to cleaning it up properly. I wouldn't wish it on anyone to have to read or use the messy code as it was *shudder*.
I got asked about it again recently, and I'm finally able to simplify the thing and put in online on Overleaf (so that other users won't get back to me with "but I don't have this package" issues either! 😉)
p/s: And yes, I got my current position with Overleaf with this CV (the full version of course)!
