An application requires me to upload my resume and to include the department to which I am applying at the top of the document. May I know how I can do so with the moderncv ? I tried the solution posted at Place framed text at top of page but not for resume type documents and it failed. The code I have below gave me this. I wasnt able to put the text at the top of the page.

  • Wow that was simple ! Do you know how I could set a maximum width for the text box such that it enters a new line if it reaches the default page width ? It seems like // does not work in this case

\maketitle prints the title there and then, in order to place images above the title, simply place the relevant TeX code before \maketitle i.e.

\begin{tikzpicture}
\node[draw] at (0,0) {some text};
\node[draw,align=left] at (3,0) {some text\\ spanning three lines\\ with manual line breaks};
\node[draw,text width=4cm] at (2,-2) {some text spanning three lines with automatic line breaks};
\end{tikzpicture}

\maketitle

This will then place the contents of the tikzpicture environment at the top of the page.
