Why even bother writing a Resume in LaTeX

Another nice feature of LaTeX is that it renders your source document in many output formats. For example, imagine writing your resume in LaTeX and producing a PDF, Postscript, HTML, and RTF version--all from a single source file and rendered in the highest quality output.

Why even bother writing a Resume in LaTeX? I believe that  summed it up very well:

I would love to put my resume into LaTeX, if I had a simple way to do so. Unfortunately, it would be a pretty painful process, and not something for which I have currently budgeted the time. I will check out some of these templates and frameworks mentioned in the future. For now, though, since I haven't even started my new job yet, not an especially urgent project : )


Creating a Resume Using LaTeX - Max Burstein's Blog

The Science Center co-produced a video on creating a resume in LaTeX with the CareerLAB!

I have a very simple solution - avoid applying there! Often people who tend to write their resumes in LaTeX would find most of these jobs less than acceptable anyways.


Eventually I got around to doing my resume in LaTeX. I looked at a bunch ofresumes out there, and though I borrowed some elements or inspiration fromseveral of them (including ), Iended up starting mostly from scratch. I now have a resume that's incrediblymaintainable and tweakable.This is a LaTeX template for presentation slides. Normally the class is used for presentation slides in LaTeX, but in the PracTeX journal this solution was given. I really like this since you can now build your slides without any knowledge on the class. Therefore, I stripped down the code that was given in the PracTeX journal and created the following presentation slides template. The TeX code in the preamble might seem complicated but when you look closer it really isn't!
