Even if you’re in your dream job, it’s always good to have an updated CV. These days, it doesn’t take a ton of technical skills to get it done either. You just need to be creative if you want to stand out. We used to learn to make CVs in school that were hideous on the eyes and full of unnecessary content. These days we know its the design that makes the employer stop and look.
Take it from someone who has read a lot of CVs, a happy mixture of both will get you far. Since there are so many cool alternatives to your Microsoft Word Document, I decided to round them up for you, right here.
