Earlier I created a resume successfully and it was easy thanks to your support :) I noticed that my resume tends to be big and consume too much space and after reading some PR interview I am thinking of revisiting my resume.

enter image description here

Now I was trying to go for something like above but unfortunately I wasn't able to replicate the above format.

I tried using tables but I wasn't able to format the text inside it nor I was able to provide line break (in one cell- as show in address and contact above)

It'd be great if you can help me a bit since similar format is followed throughout the resume :)

  • Do you have recommendation in terms of the document class? Is article okay? – Werner Nov 18 '13 at 6:20
  • yes , I am using article style only :) – Shashwat Nov 18 '13 at 8:19
  • Any help on this ? – Shashwat Nov 19 '13 at 4:42

Since I'm unfamiliar with the extent of this usage, the following is an adequate replica that could be extended (I assume) to suit your needs:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}% http://ctan.org/pkg/geometry
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\begin{document}
\sffamily%
{\small\begin{tabular}[c]{l}
  123 Spruce St, Apt 35 \\
  Philadelphia PA 19103
\end{tabular}}\hfill%
{\Large\bfseries\begin{tabular}[c]{c}
  GAYLE LAAKMANN
\end{tabular}}\hfill%
{\small\begin{tabular}[c]{r}
  (555) 555-1212 \\
  gayle@careerup.com
\end{tabular}}%

\bigskip

\begin{tabular}{p{\dimexpr\linewidth-2\tabcolsep}}
  \textbf{Employment} \\
  \hline
  {\bfseries Software Engineer, Intern \qquad Apple Computer \hfill Summer 2004} \\
  \quad iChat AV
\end{tabular}
\end{document}

The title is set using vertically centered tabulars, while the subsequent structure detailing experience/employment is set in a paragraph-style tabular, the width of which spans exactly \linewidth.

  • I did everything as mentioned but the text appear on the left side :/ – Shashwat Nov 20 '13 at 6:38
  • Ok it worked :) Thanks :) Seems like a single linebreak between command was breaking things apart! BTW any idea of giving Teletype (Typewriter) style fond to address and phone ? When I tried \texttt it just make things bigger and worse and doesn't looks like Teletype at all! – Shashwat Nov 20 '13 at 7:10

    You tried \texttt{(555) 555-1212} and \texttt{gayle@careerup.com}? Works for me as you can see in this image. – Werner Nov 20 '13 at 15:09
  • Yes that works - seems like \texttt wasn't scaling on multiple line maybe its not accepting line break! BTW any help on new problem ? – Shashwat Nov 21 '13 at 14:22
  • Is there anyway I can separate Header Title (Employment) and \hline from the above format yet attain the same alignment? Cause when I try I get errors ! – Shashwat Nov 23 '13 at 17:59
