    Philosophy (debatable if that's a science, but you have a forum for it!)
  1. Custom layout CVs (resumes that is) seem to be a lot more common in creative sectors. Graphic designers, for instance, might decide to demonstrate their skills this way. Generally though, I think it's about balancing the need to stand out amongst the crowd with clearly displaying your credentials. Recruiters and hiring managers have to shift through a mountain of CVs, so it's a double-edged sword. On the one hand, a custom layout may be more eye-catching, but on the other it might end up frustrating them because they can't find what they're looking for. As long as you clearly lay out your experience and/or education (depending on how much experience you have), skills, and contact details, you should be ok. That said, if in doubt, work from a template!
  2. That's great to hear! I'm new here too - I did go to university but I've always struggled with the sciences, hence why I'm here now, hoping to learn a thing or two. I have some background in philosophy, but it's pretty rusty! Anyway, glad to be here.
  3. If you avoid inputting any sensitive data you should be fine. No passwords, bank details, and stuff like that. Sounds obvious but I've had to check myself a couple of times before transfering money on my laptop in a cafe!
