I am looking at a CV template, and I can not figure out how to make the description text blocks wider on the right.

The blocks I am talking about are the ones similar to the block starting with
"Provided analysis of spreads.."

What should I be looking at?

The template uses the classicthesis package, which defines the page layout by \areaset with specific values depending on the used fonts. You could use \areaset as well.

Syntax: \areaset[binding offset]{width}{height}

Try for example:


Here I made just the text wider and shortened the marginpar width, which contains the first column.
