Psst... in case you missed our last post on how to design a CV or Case Study for CV Partner, you can find the article here.
At CV Partner, we have a team dedicated to your template needs. In addition to converting your finished CV designs to CV Partner templates, we aim to provide assistance and guidance when making changes to existing templates and managing your template library.
After many years of receiving template requests, we’ve consolidated some tips and tricks to make them even more effective so we can meet your template needs as soon as possible!
In this article, we will answer the questions:
To ensure that you receive your requested templates as soon and efficiently as possible, please follow the steps below:
Before sending us a CV design or a template request, gather the files used to design the CV. You may need to contact the designers who created the CV design, as they will be able to provide you with the original design files. These files (which may include the font files, background images etc.) allow us to get started on the template immediately.
The Bottom Line: Gathering design files ahead of time, makes it less likely that we’ll have to ask you for more information. This makes the template making process even more efficient!
When you have a CV template design you'd like to upload to CV Partner, you can send your request to the CV Partner Template Team by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When sending us the actual CV design, our preferred file types are listed below, in order of preference:
Tip! We use Microsoft Word to translate your designs to templates so receiving them as Word documents saves us a lot of time! (Re: An Introduction to Templates)
Tip! PDF files do not allow us to read the correct distances between elements, identify colors, margins or fonts and styles. This increases the time it takes to create templates for you.
Additionally, we can ensure faster delivery of templates when you include the design files in your initial request (See 1.0 Gathering design files).
Tip! We recommend compressing font files and images to separate .zip files. You can do this by right-clicking on the folder you want to send and selecting "Compress 'File'".
The Bottom Line: Receiving the CV design in Microsoft Word gives us all the stylistic information we need in order to make the template look as identical to the design as possible. We will also take all the design files we can get!
After you’ve chosen a CV design and gathered the design files, you are now well-equipped to send us a template request that will rock our socks off. Too much?
What an A+ template request looks like:
The Bottom Line: The more information we receive, the more we can create detailed templates delivered to you asap!
In some cases, you may have an existing template that you wish to make changes to - including examples like resizing the font size or adding a new section. In this case, you can either make these changes yourself by editing the downloaded template or you can send the following information to our Template Team who will be happy to help!
If you’re looking for a bid specific or government/NGO formatted template, it might be that we have already created the official proposal template in your request. In that case, because of our clients privacy, we will not inform you about this.
What you can do:
We are dedicated to making your experience with CV Partner they best that it can be, so when we receive your request, we drop everything (seriously) and get to it! With your co-operation and the advice of this guide, we’re confident that we can meet your template needs as efficiently as possible.
