# How to set the width of columns in tex?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multicol}
\begin{document}
\begin{multicols}{2}

lots of text goes here.

\end{multicols}
\end{document}

If I add lots of text, I get two columns, but there is a lot of space left on both sides, i.e. the columns are too narrow. I am trying to make a one page CV. How can I increase the width of the columns?
