Hi, I was just looking into updating my CV but I don't know what template would be good for a Software Engineer. Most of the templates i found where either artistic (for designers) which i think aren't suitable and some templates don't conserve space. Can someone point me to a good template (MS Word or GDoc) for the CV.


https://www.resumonk.com/resume_templates and https://jsonresume.org/themes/ are good for inspiration but you can't edit them in MS Word.

An example CV structure I quite like is http://kelly-dunn.me/ (HTML and PDF version).

Yep jsonresume has good themes but don't use space efficiently. Resumonk has some decent themes, i might try that out. Thanks.

The kelly-dunn CV is really good looking (4.5/5)and clean in HTML. PDF, not so much.

You can start with LaTeX templates from sharelatex.com. They have some really good templates.

A Wikipedia entry

I share the same name with an accomplished AI researcher who has a Wikipedia page. Sometimes I wonder if I've received offers just because of that.

yes you would have ,if you are the same age and sex. Try putting the link for fun and see what happens
