I want to reduce the vertical distance between "Education" and the line. How to do that?

I am using the following code:

\newcommand*{\Line}[3][]{\tikz \draw[#1] #2 -- #3;}%
\Line[black, thick]{(0,0)}{(6.99in,0)}%

Output (this is my current output but I want less vertical space between "Education" and the line):

enter image description here

Or may be I can use something else? I just want to have a thick line below "Education" section of my resume.

  • Do you like to have this line in text? For TikZ picture this is unusualy approach, there is normally something as \draw (0,0) node[above right] {\textbf{Education}} -- (6.99in,0); In a text is people normally use rule: \rule[<lift>]{<thick>}{<length>}.
