Latex Resume Template

Here is a résumé of mine done in LaTeX using my resume.tex template. A lot of people seem to like my template, so I've provided it here for anyone to use if they like.

LaTeX style on CTAN: George Louthan has created a LaTeX style file based on my template which is now available in CTAN (see: tucv resume style file at CTAN).

Unfortunately the content in this resume is out-of-date so please don't look at the content too carefully (see my portfolio page for my most recent resume).

Tips

Centering your name

If you want your name centered, replace the header part with this:

\begin{center}
\textbf{\Large David Grant}
\end{center}
\begin{tabular*}{7in}{l@{\extracolsep{3.7in}}l}
3151 2nd Ave.\ W.& \hfill cell.\ 604-831-8171 \\
Vancouver, BC V6K 1K7 & \hfill email.\ davidgrant@gmail.com \\
\end{tabular*}
\\

Shading.sty

The only package style/class this resume template requires is the optional shading.sty style file which is available on CTAN. I have attached my shading.sty file here and the differences from the original are:

     \def\theradius{10}%
     \def\thevskip{15pt}%
     \setbox\graybox=\hbox{\surroundboxb{#3}}%

As you can see, I changed the parashade command's \xgrayspace, \ygrayspace, and \outlineboxwidth variables.

color.sty

If you have problems with shading.sty, try Todd C. Miller's modifications to my template, to use color.sty instead.

i've installed your shading and i get a low resolution grey shading ... but when i convert to pdf or tex2pdf i dont get any shading on \resheading's , do you have any suggestions ?
thanks

I found that pdflatex did not show the shading but that if I created a dvi file and used dvipdf to convert to pdf it would show up. For my own resume I decided to use color.sty (which should come with most LaTeX distributions) instead of shading.sty. You can take a look at http://www.courtesan.com/todd/resume.html to see what I did.

Great resume there. I'll have to look at your source and check out what tweaks you used.

This is a good post. This post gives truly quality information. I’m definitely going to look into it. Really very useful tips are provided here. Thank you so much. Keep up the good works.

I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
