LaTeX CV Template

December 9th, 2008

Creating a CV or resume in LaTeX can be time-consuming, especially if you’re relatively new to it or only know the basic math commands (like 9 out of 10 mathematicians). Thus, I present to you the LaTeX CV template that I use, which is based on the template found on David Grant’s website. The template makes use of the framed, tocloft, and xcolor packages, which come pretty standard with most LaTeX distributions. I have also made a few (in my mind) improvements and fixes to the original template:

  • Added dot separators to the “Awards” list to make it easier to read.
  • Fixed a shading glitch when using tex2pdf.
  • Pretty-ified heading borders a bit.
