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.

A two row academic CV template.
This is just a normal two column layout, not paracol like many of my other templates.
It is fairly simple but can accommodate lots of information which can come in handy for academic CVs.
It is relatively classic and basic but still doesn't look like any other template either.
Since it doesn't use paracol, however, getting the black rules (cvrule) to line up beside each other might be difficult, if that's what you want. Usage with perfectly lined up rules wasn't intended, but could be achieved by changing the twocolumn to a normal article using the paracol package.
The colour can be made into grey or whatever you want. It is indicated in the comments where this can be done.
For listing publications, multiple different versions are available (look closely!). You can try out all the alternatives and then stick with what works best for you.

A modern simple (academic) CV template.
With no colour, but a few different tabulars for visualizing your skills and cv events.
The template has no colour, but adding logos to your events will still make it relatively colourful (and thus, not strictly classic, why I called it "modern").
You can play around with different fonts. The places where the changes can be made are indicated by comments.
The fancy font for the name can be taken away, if you don't want it.

This simple Resume/CV template features a large sidebar with key information about you neatly presented for quick perusal with a simple and customizable timeline. Your main skills can be quickly highlighted using progress bars with ticks ranging from novice(0) to expert(5), this is particularly useful for programming languages and other skills where time is required for mastery. The template body is then presented delimited by large colored section titles (alternating gray and blue). Inside these, you can further divide content by subsection or simply write paragraphs. Lists of achievements or timelines can be constructed using one of two environments: long lists with descriptions or short one-line lists. The template features commented code for making it into a two-page Resume/CV where the document body simply continues onto the next page and the sidebar is displayed again on the second page.
This is a spinoff of the Hipster CV featuring new visual elements, especially the timeline and the progress circles.
The colour options are like in the Hipster CV but here, a "bluebeige" version was added as 'the main colour theme'. Not all Hipster colours look great with this, but verylight, lighthipster and allblack are quite ok.
Compared to the original and Simple Hipster CVs, it is generally less crammed and thus is a bit lighter on the eye due to the greater amount of white space.
The timeline functionality is not yet perfect, but it allows for lots of customization. It will be updated once I've come up with something more effective. Then I will also take care to make it a bit more user-friendly. (Thus far, it's a little bit complicated, sorry about that.)
The original Hipster CV is here (Github repo – read up more on the initial thought with it here & here).
And then, there is also the newer and lighter version of it, called Simple Hipster CV.
