Given that neither
explicitly touches on this topic, I'd like to close a gap in my understanding:
- How big should margins be on a typographically (and visually) pleasing CV ?
I think the beauty of
*TeX is that it takes care of the good looks, that is, knows much better than myself (!) of how to make things simply look good. How to harness that inbuilt knowledge of
*TeX without making it ugly by trying too hard (by manually interfering / customizing) ?
With regard to CV templates, so far I came across hardly any which I find to be both truly beautiful and clear and simple (unpretentious but elegant) at the same time, with but a few exceptions. Plz feel free to reference outstanding CV examples in a comment below! :) Note that I'm not looking for sth fancy/sparkly/don't-know-what-hit-you, but rather for sth with a TeX-like "understatement" ...
