I am trying to create a following image in LaTeX for my resume. I can find a lot of questions and answers being discussed on the perfect rectangular background but not the rounded shape. enter image description here

Perhaps something like this:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[x11names]{xcolor}
\usepackage[most]{tcolorbox}

\newtcolorbox{shadedcvbox}[1][]{enhanced jigsaw,colback=white!60!blue,boxrule=0pt,arc=2mm,auto outer arc,boxsep=0pt,coltext={blue},#1}

\begin{document}

\begin{shadedcvbox}
Employment Experience
\end{shadedcvbox}

\end{document}

Update

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[x11names]{xcolor}
\usepackage[most]{tcolorbox}

\newtcolorbox{shadedcvbox}[1][]{enhanced jigsaw,
  colback=white!80!blue,
  coltext={blue},
  boxrule=0pt,
  arc=3mm,
  auto outer arc,
  boxsep=3pt,
  left=4pt,
  right=2pt,
  bottom=2pt,
  top=2pt,
  fontupper={\bfseries},
  #1}

\begin{document}

\begin{shadedcvbox}
Employment Experience
\end{shadedcvbox}

\begin{shadedcvbox}[colback=yellow!80!white,coltext={red},drop fuzzy shadow={yellow!80!black}]
Employment Experience
\end{shadedcvbox}

\begin{shadedcvbox}[interior style={left color=blue!20!white, right color=yellow!50!white}]
Employment Experience
\end{shadedcvbox}



\end{document}

enter image description here

    arc=4mm would be better... and white!90!blue... and \sffamily Nov 2, 2015 at 19:01
  • @StevenB.Segletes: The arc= size depends on the real content, in my point of view and is also subject to opinion. I took some arbitrary color value to show the possibilities

  • I want to slightly decrease the margin for the beamer box so I can have all the text align nicely on left side. How do I override the margins just for the box so I can slightly decrease it for the box and have my text align together. Currently my text "employment experience" is slightly shifted to the right compare to other text in my resume. Nov 5, 2015 at 3:20
  • @DhruvPatel slightly isn't a very precise value. Change the left=... value then

  • I meant to decrease box margin about half centimeter. The left = ... Moves the text to left but the box isn't moving. I want the box sides to move which isn't changing. Nov 5, 2015 at 7:03
