I am writing my resume and using template "9b" from this website. However, there are a couple of items that I would like to modify.

Here is the .tex file and corresponding screen-shot after compilation.

\documentclass[line,margin]{res}
\usepackage{newcent}   
\begin{document}
\name{\huge{Andrew Parker}}

\address{123 M, Main Street, \\ Port Washington, NC, 12345}
\address{www.google.com}
\address{631-231-1232}

\begin{resume}
\section{OBJECTIVE} A position in the field of computers with special 
                interests in business applications programming, 
\section{EDUCATION} {\sl Bachelor of Science,} Interdisciplinary Science \\
                Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 
\end{resume}
\end{document}

Here is the screen-shot after compilation

enter image description here

  1. As you can see, even though my TeX-code mentions my web-site name www.google.com the compiler seems to ignore it and skips ahead to the next address line with the phone number. Why does that happen?

  2. My mailing address is too long. But when I tried to break the my mailing address into two lines using \\, there was no effect. The mailing address still appears all on one line.

  3. I would like to include my nationality and visa type just under my name. How would I do it? All the address lines are placed at the extreme right of the page. I would like to place my visa-type and nationality to the left of the page under my name.

You can set the entire "address" inside a tabular-like structure. Below I've used tabularx:

enter image description here

\documentclass[line,margin]{res}
\usepackage{newcent,tabularx}

\begin{document}
\name{\huge Andrew Parker}

\address{\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{@{}X l l@{}}
  South African      & Address: & 123 M, Main Street, \\ 
  Permanent Resident &          & Port Washington, NC, 12345 \\
                     & Website: & www.google.com \\
                     & Phone:   & 631-231-1232
\end{tabularx}}

\begin{resume}
\section{OBJECTIVE} A position in the field of computers with special 
                interests in business applications programming, 
\section{EDUCATION} {\sl Bachelor of Science,} Interdisciplinary Science \\
                Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, 
\end{resume}
\end{document}
