LaTeX Example :: Résumé/Curriculum Vitae (CV)

NEW!! - I also have a the LaTeX source for an entire book (i.e., a thesis) available.

In the same spirit as the LaTeX homework template, I have put together my own LaTeX résumé/CV template. Actually, I've just revised my own CV and released its source. Hopefully the source can be used as a template for others. The LaTeX source code distributed below is released for redistribution under a CC BY-NC 3.0 US license.

There are already some templates available (e.g., Blevins or Paciorek); however, these templates seem awkward and unfortunately require the res document class. So, I created a simple CV that uses the standard article document class and defines a couple of macros to make things pretty straight forward. Additionally, each CV section gets added as a PDF bookmark. See the PDF for an example of what this means.

Notice the \makeheading{}, \section, and \blankline macros as well as the outerlist and innerlist environments. There is also a bibsection environment that provides a list appropriate for listing publications (use \item within the environment for each publication).

Simply strip my information out of the LaTeX source and add your own.

Also consider the European Union's Europass CV format:
