# How to reduce space between name and address on a latex resume?

I'm writing a resume using Latex and I would like to reduce the space between the line \name and the line address. How to do so ? Here is my code:

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

\usepackage[left=0.4 in,top=0.4in,right=0.4 in,bottom=0.4in]{geometry} % Document margins
\newcommand{\tab}[1]{\hspace{.2667\textwidth}\rlap{#1}}
\newcommand{\itab}[1]{\hspace{0em}\rlap{#1}}

\begin{document}

I used the Medium Length Professional CV as the source for resume.cls.

The gap between the name and the rest of the "title" is given by \nameskip, which defaults to \bigskip. Here are some sample changes:

• Default (\newcommand{\nameskip}{\bigskip}):

• \renewcommand{\nameskip}{\medskip}:

• \renewcommand{\nameskip}{\smallskip}:

• \renewcommand{\nameskip}{} (no space):

• \renewcommand{\nameskip}{\vspace{5\baselineskip}} (large positive gap):

Add your choice just before \begin{document}.
