Where Free Templates mean FREE Templates

Have you been searching the web for free cv and resume templates only to find both expensive and non usable ones? Way to often free doesn’t mean free, free means many dollars and lousy templates that are hard to edit. Or maybe they call it free and you are being linked to another page that is charging you for it, meaning that the tip about the template is the free thing, not the template it self.

Well, then you have come to the right place. We have loads of free templates for your resume/CV and cover letter. And they are all truly 100% free of charge. You will not find a single thing on our website that comes with a fee, and you never will.

To sum it up in three beautiful words, we have MANY FREE TEMPLATES.

CV and resume templates

Building your resume/CV

There is no law on how to build your CV but here are elements that are close to mandatory and other that we consider a good idea to add. We list them below.

  • Contact info – You need to include information like your name, address, phone numbers and email address. This to make it easy for employers to contact you. Other information, as age or nationality, is optional and you need to analyze if it’s necessary for the job or not. You should never add more information than needed, keep it as short as possible, all the way through your CV.

  • Profile/About me – In one paragraph you should describe your usp’s (unique selling points) related to the job you will be applying for. This part needs to be updated for every application.

  • Work experience – List your word expereince in reverse chronological order. Make sure to include position, name of the company and dates of employment, Make sure to describe and highlight your responsibilities and achievements in each role.  This will make it easier for the person reading (well, scanning) the CV to match your experience and  with their needs.

  • Education – This should also be listed in reverse chronological order. Don´t describe the content of your education since the emplyer most probably know this. Use your limited amount of characters to tell them about your achievements, reports and grade instead.

  • Skills – Read the job description again and add a list of skills that you believe will fit the job. If possible, grade the skills (we have templates for this). It could be skills in Photoshop, MS Office, Typewriting, CSS or anything else you would like to emphasize.

  • Hobbies and interests – This element is optional but it makes the CV slightly more personal and adds topics to discuss on a interview. So, it’s not a bad idea to add some

  • References – Always write ”Provided on request”. Never add the names of you references and their contact information on a CV. Well, if the job description doesn’t say otherwise.
