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Unfortunately the content in this resume is out-of-date so please don't look at the content too carefully (see my portfolio page for my most recent resume).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

### What do you mean by "up and

What do you mean by "up and down"? Sorry for the super late reply.

### Thanks a lot..!!

An awesome resume..thanks for sharing it..!!

### Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback.

### How to use the .sty

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.
