Trying to create my CV on Overleaf right now. However, I am facing a very odd bug. As shown below, the text just collides with the sub headings (under experience in Google):

enter image description here

The code for this section is as below:



\descript{| Software Engineering Intern }
\location{May 2013 – Aug 2013 | Mountain View, CA}
\item Worked on

Please do not hesitate to ask me if you would require any other details about the code, or the sections before or after this particular one.

    Could you post a full compilable post? Most of your commands/environment are not standard LaTeX. – Bernard Sep 26 '17 at 17:36
  • So, how is tightemize defined? My guess is you can just add something like \bigskip before it and it should move the content downward. – Werner Sep 26 '17 at 17:37
  • @Werner That worked out pretty well, so that's the answer I suppose. The behaviour of tightemize is not replicated in other sections though. – Sharan Duggirala Sep 26 '17 at 18:00

One can only assume that the tightemize environment produces a list with either reduced vertical spacing, or with a vertical adjustment to accommodate for too much spacing.

Moving the tightemize environment down should be as simple as adding


or some other \vspace{<len>} amount before the environment.
