I use the \geometry package for formatting my CV, and I know (from How to remove vertical space between header and body of text?) that I can use the headsep attribute to customize the spacing between header and the text. But now, I need to have different spacing on the title page of my CV (headsep = 25), and the second page (headsep = 10). How do I do this?

A simple solution would be to issue \setlength{\headsep}{10pt} somewhere on the second page. For more sophisticated changes, see section 7 of the geometry manual "Changing layout mid-document".

That works fine - thanks !! – TCSGrad Dec 11 '11 at 11:54
Or \vspace*{15pt} when starting the first page. – egreg Dec 11 '11 at 11:55
