# Second column aligns too high in multicol

I am using multicol along with currvita, and I am having an issue where the second column of a two-column block is lining up with a heading that comes before the multicol environment. I would really like to have both columns be under the heading, with "Third Item" aligned with "First Item". Any suggestions?

Here is a MWE:

\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\usepackage{currvita}
\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}
\begin{cv}

\begin{cvlist}{A List Of Items}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\item First item
\item Second item
\item Third item
\item Fourth Item
\end{multicols}

\end{cvlist}

\end{cv}
\end{document}


It looks like this:

I'm going to guess that this is about being in vertical mode when you're entering the multicols environment. As a result, the top of the columns is being calculated before the newline is created for your cvlist header. Try something like the following:

\documentclass[10pt]{article}
\usepackage{currvita}
\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}

\begin{cv}

\begin{cvlist}{A List Of Items}
\item ~\vspace{-2\baselineskip}%%
\begin{multicols}{2}
\item First item
\item Second item
\item Third item
\item Fourth Item
\end{multicols}

\end{cvlist}

\end{cv}

\end{document}
