YAAC: Another Awesome CV CircleCI Example

Quick start

You can edit online YAAC: Another Awesome CV template on Overleaf. Feel free to use my referal link if you want to create your account.


YAAC: Another Awesome CV was first based on a CV template from Alessandro Plasmati. This template used XeLaTeX engine and Fontin Sans font.

Personal data has moved on top of the first page just before the position and Fontin Sans font has been replaced by Source Sans Pro Font from Adobe. Font Awesome icons highlight important elements.

Unlike Alessandro Plasmati CV template, all layout stuff in YAAC: Another Awesome CV has moved in the Latex class file yaac-another-awesome-cv.cls to improve source code readability and style reusability.

More informations about the original Alessandro Plasmati template can be found here :
