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Unfortunately the content in this resume is out-of-date so please don't look at the content too carefully (see my portfolio page for my most recent resume).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

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.

What you have to do to use the shading.sty? Sorry, I am just very new to LaTex and I find that the resources on Google isn't very helpful when it comes to LaTex. There seems to be nothing much for beginners. I spent about an hour on Google prior to writing this and all of the pages I looked at weren't helpful. So again, what do I do with the shading.sty to make it show up? Thank you.
