My MWE is,

\documentclass{resume} % Use the custom resume.cls style

\definecolor{linkcolour}{rgb}{0,0.2,0.6} % Link color
\name{My name, P\textsc{h}.D}

\begin{rSection}{Personal Data}
\textsc{Address:} &  something. \\
\textsc{Temporary Address:} &   something, Luxembourg \\
\textsc{Phone:}&   111111 \\
\textsc{email:}&  \href{mailto:[email protected]}{[email protected]}\\
\textsc{Languages:}&  something\\



My problem is that when I compile, "my name" appears with capital letters which is OK, but what I particularly do not like and want to fix is that the letter "h", in the title Ph.D, appears with capital letter as well - although, I used the \texsc{} command.

Can some help me with to account for small caps inside the \name{} command line?

The file resume.cls for the resume style can be found here

Here it is the result

  • The class is named res.cls if you link to ctan.org/pkg/res?lang=en -- and the document produces nothing so far

  • This time, just this time, you can try P{\sc h}.D.

  • @Johannes_B is [rpi.edu/dept/arc/training/latex/resumes/res.cls] what you need or my own file ?

Dirty templates, dirty solutions.

Use the following, which is ugly, but ...

\name{My name, P\MakeLowercase{h}.D}

If you use a font that supports bold small caps, you can do that as well.


By the way, the code is from either https://github.com/treyhunner/resume
or http://www.latextemplates.com/template/medium-length-professional-cv

  • Sorry, this looks awful!!!!

  • @msh855: If you use this style of Ph.D. your PhD degree should be revoked ;-)

  • @ChristianHupfer, so far this is my lucky template, though - lot of interviews and already a job offer ! :) ... but, I am willing to hear another suggestion for template.

  • @msh855 I think this is more because of the content, i.e. what you are able to do. Not solely about the looks ;-)
