You need to change the code for the left frame like this (see the important code changings marked with <======):

Please see that I showed one example with environment flushright and one with flushleft. Choose that you like more (I would prefer the first one). Please see you need to rework the distances between the new titles (not set with \CVSection or \CVItem. I left that for you and for your taste ...

So the complete code
