A simple layout for CVs is preferred by the majority of users as it makes them quick to scan making the life of recruiters easier.
Use MS Word format — it’s still the standard across recruiters and companies
Bulleted lists covering skills and experience
Reverse chronological order for employment history — it’s the expected format
Conciseness — repeatedly go thru and remove superfluous words
One font is all you (almost) need. Sans-serif is easier to scan/read.
For email address & telephone number use a fixed-width font for legibility
