Pros: It is professionally laid out, keeps a simple design and a simple colour pallet yet shows off some skills to the way it is laid out. Also displays the level of skills they have on the right side, making it stand out more. Names and sub headings are also in a bigger font and different colour compared the rest

Cons: Reflecting on your own skills can make you look a bit weak if there is something that you’re not too good on, an example is that Tim is poor at some of his professional skills.

Pros: Cleanly laid out into sections making it easy to find certain things, also it is more personal as the added interests area tells you more about the individual. It gives a good time frame of his previous employment as well.

Cons: Looks a bit odd with the two different colours clashing. It also feels like he tried to fit as much onto the page as he could such as randomly putting his languages in the bottom right in a different lay out to the rest of the CV. The font is also pretty hard to read as it is highlighted with a background.

Pros: This CV gives a lot of detail into every aspect of this persons career from a detailed explanation to a timeline and chats. There is a barcode to be scanned to obtain details to contact the individual.

Cons: Messy lay out with too much on one page. Even though it gives a lot of information, it looks so untidy that you don’t know where to start reading. The bar code, even though a good idea that shows skill as well, can be problematic if the person reading this has no way to scan it. It is also kind of pointless putting it there as well as his details are in the top right hand corner, making it feel like he is trying to use up as much space as he can. The font is also hard to read and other than the little bit in the top right hand corner about his traits, you don’t really know the person much as a person.
