I don't know why I can't compile my Curriculum Vitae from LaTex. I would get something that looks like this website. Does anyone could help me at this level? You can even modify it to make it more live content to the person reading my C.V.

\documentclass[margin, 10pt]{res}

\usepackage{helvet}

\setlength{\textwidth}{5.1in}



\begin{document}

\moveleft.5\hoffset\centerline{\large\bf John Smith} 

\moveleft\hoffset\vbox{\hrule width\resumewidth height 1pt}\smallskip 

\moveleft.5\hoffset\centerline{xxxxxxx}

  • His CV is already in that template, he is asking why his code does not compile – Elad Den Mar 3 '16 at 6:56

The reason you cannot compile is that you have an error in the code. Your bracketing is unbalanced.

\section{{Work experience - Without mathematics} should be \section{Work experience - Without mathematics} (notice the brackets)

and \section{{Soft Skills} should be \section{Soft Skills} notice brackets again.
