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Unfortunately the content in this resume is out-of-date so please don't look at the content too carefully (see my portfolio page for my most recent resume).


Centering your name

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

\textbf{\Large David Grant}
3151 2nd Ave.\ W.& \hfill cell.\ 604-831-8171 \\
Vancouver, BC V6K 1K7 & \hfill email.\ \\


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:

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


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


This template was modified from Matthew Boedicker's template.

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 ?

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 to see what I did.

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

The shadings would not render using the shading.sty file with pdflatex. (Sigh, stuck with miktex for now)
Tried switching to colorboxes but they wouldn't render either.

the fullpage package was the culprit, changed it to geometry

dvips -Ppdf -t letter resume.dvi

The shading is some sort of ps thing...which is why (if I'm my memory serves me right) the shading doesn't show up on the dvi. I always had to go from dvi to ps to pdf, rather than direct form dvi to pdf.


Your template is very good... Thank you for sharing it!!!
I have one question.. Why the text is not justified??? The TEX documents are justified automatically..

Best regards
