I modified the resume template found here. I am facing the following issues:

  1. The bullet points are in the middle of the two lines, I am unable to place them directly before the beginning of a sentence.
  2. Under the Research Experience, the lines do not seem to occur one below the other.

Kindly help.

For #1, modify the \ressubheading command as follows:

\newcommand{\ressubheading}[4]{%
        \begin{minipage}[t]{6.5in}
                \textbf{#1} \hfill #2 \\
                \textit{#3} \hfill \textit{#4} 
        \end{minipage}\vspace{-6pt}}

For #2, enter the four arguments correctly as this:

\ressubheading{Parallel Tools for High Speed Machines Circuits}
                    {~}
                    {\href{http://dummypage}{Computer Lab, University of Ottawa.}} 
                    {\textbf{{Summer,2013}}}
