Mine CV (that is just a resume right?)
Is just basicaly formated text with the most important points. It worked so far...
Why the effort then?
don-rager91417dThe only fun part of the actual writing procedure of my BS (bullshit) thesis was customizing latex commands and adding new ones that made my life easier
@Gregozor2121 CV and resume are basically the same.
I'm doing the effort because I'm currently looking for a new job (since my freelancing is slow and I kind of what to stop doing it), and my old resume design wasn't "21st century" and I thought it would be good to change it up a bit (but still make it easy to read for both humans and ATS (online resume readers for companies), and finally I needed to change a bunch of the wording on it (since I was repeating words and it just wasn't words that actuality reflected me). Hopefully all this effort will lead to a job or contact of some sort.
SomeNone43617dWhile I would be the first to applaud your efforts of creating a résumé/CV in LaTeX (been there, done it), in this day and age I find it's not worth the effort because nobody wants to receive a printed CV. Best to find an austere template for Word or OpenOffice, and use that to create a PDF, then upload it to whereever it's needed so the machine parsing it will automatically get the sections right, and there will be no trouble with the keywords.
-pthread22417dBTW LaTeX isn't programming language
@SomeNone I'm not using LaTeX to create a printed pdf (who even prints things anymore), I'm using it to create a PDF that the machine parsing can easily read.
The problem with many of the templates in M$ Word or OpenOffice that they tend to use textboxes which make it harder to edit to be what I want. And some of the templates that I had used (in M$ Word) didn't turn out so good when parsed by a machine.
I've also been reading about many people using LaTeX for their resume / CV I wanted to try it out for myself.
