# How to move a phrase in a resume template?

Here is some template CV in LaTeX: http://www.rpi.edu/dept/arc/training/latex/resumes/ Consider template number 9a (source). I want to move the name to the left, write "Resume" in the middle, and put a date on the right.

How can I do this?

-

% Center the name over the entire width of resume:
\moveleft.5\hoffset\centerline{\large\bf Susan R. Bumpershoot}


% Name on left, RESUME, date right
\hspace*{-\hoffset}{\large\bfseries\rlap{Susan R. Bumpershoot} \hfill%
RE\'SUM\'E \hfill%
\llap{\today}\par}


\rlap and \llap sets the name/date in a zero-width box to ensure that RESUME is centred.

You may also wish to adjust the width of the horizontal rule as I've done in the above image, since it's slightly wider than the text width:

% Name on left, RESUME, date right
\hspace*{-\hoffset}{\large\bfseries\rlap{Susan R. Bumpershoot} \hfill%
R\'ESUM\'E \hfill%
\llap{\today}\par}\kern-\parskip
% Draw a horizontal line the whole width of resume:
\hspace*{-\hoffset}\vbox{\hrule width\dimexpr\textwidth+\hoffset\relax height 1pt}\par\smallskip


As a suggestion, other (more modern) resume/CV templates/packages/classes exist. Consider, for example, using the moderncv document class.
