I feel that being a recent graduate my age could be a bonus, as i'm nearly 28, it could be assumed that i'm more mature and grounded than for example a 20yo graduate.
Also I have had quite a few recruitment agencies ring me up asking if i drive, i will probably have to drive to my job as i...
Thats ok, me too lol when originally saying my spacing isn't perfect i meant the personal info too
So you think a different contrast colour would be more effective, ok i'll have a play with some different colours
The lines opposite the headers, do you mean the green lines next to the icons where the contact info is etc?
Which colour heading are you referring to, the main black headers or the small green sub-headers?
I know the spacing isn't perfect I'm still nudging it all about buuuut, what do people think of this one?
I've added some icons, changed the header font and some other bits and bobs, is this looking any more like a good cv?

I understand what you mean as being a recent graduate qualifications are important. Only thing is when I move academic qualifications to the first page, the second page has much less information as the first page and it looks very unbalanced, grrrr :/
Ok thank you, I am making all of the headers a bolder text to allow it to stand out and guide potential employers when scanning. I have also gone through and made my upper and lower casing consistent. How come you think I should consider putting my academics before work experience? I think even...
Sorry what do you mean by "Some hierarchy problems with the Green Headings and the Body Text."
I have taken my time with my CV, nearly two weeks lol along with applying for the odd job.
I didn't feel I was struggling with the layout, personally i like the lay but i am a recent graduate, not...
If I was to lose additional information I'm not really sure where else i can fit it in. Ok i'll change "got my head in a computer", i thought it would be good to include a bit of 'realness' in the hobbies/interest section.
So I have gone away and edited my CV, I think for the better, I'm just wondering what you guys now thought of it?
The link is below..
I have now left aligned the text :)
I do like the typography and colour used in this one: http://dzineblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/113.jpg not a fan of graphs in CVs though.
What exactly do you mean by a keyline?
I like the idea of doing something creative with the typography. I think i'll use this cv for online marketing vacancies and spice up the typography and maybe some other elements for creative vacancies.
Ok thanks everyone for the valid points. There seems to be a big divide in what employers would look for in terms of design for a CV, creative or simple... as you can see in the comments below this blog post.... http://dzineblog.com...me-designs.html .... people are all disagreeing with each...
