I read this and this related questions to use multiple references to the same footnote, but those suggested solutions don't work in class komacv. It can also be my fault.

I used footmisc in my MWE:

\documentclass[style = oldstyle]{komacv}



  \section{Praktische Tätigkeiten}
      \cventry{x.20xx--x.20xx}{Fachpraktikum}{Siemens Aktiengesellschaft}{IC SG EA MF\footnotemark\ Berlin}{}{Vor- und Endmontage, Qualitätssicherung}
      \cventry{x.20xx--x.20xx}{Vorpraktikum}{Siemens Aktiengesellschaft}{SPE\footnotemark\ Berlin}{}{Manuelle Arbeitstechniken -- Grundlagen inkl.\ Messen, Drehen und Fräsen, Lichtbogen- und Gasschweißen}


      \cvdoubleitem{Betriebs-\ systeme}{Linux, Windows}{Programmier\-sprachen}{C, Java\footnotemark, MATLAB}

  \footnotetext[1]{Infrastructure \& Cities Smart Grid Energy Automation Manufacturing}
  \footnotetext[2]{Siemens Professional Education}
  \footnotetext{fortgeschrittene Kenntnisse}


If I click on the superscript numbers behind the words (MF, SPE and LaTeX), than the viewer jumps to the (physical) first page and not to the footnote on the second page. The hyperlinking don't work here.

Is there a solution?

Thank you for your help and effort in advance!

  • If you want check this: tex.stackexchange.com/a/397560/120578 . It has nothing to do with hyperref but we don't really know what you attend to do.

The issue here is that you are adding for example an footnote in the fourth parameter of command \cventry. Command \cventry is defined like:

    \ifstrempty{#4}{}{, {\itshape#4}}%
    \ifstrempty{#5}{}{, #5}%
    \ifstrempty{#6}{}{, #6}%

As you can see it uses command \cvitem to print the entry. The fourth paramter is part of the parameter for \cvitem. And see that the last parameter of cventry in \cvitem uses a minipage for typesetting (minipages keeps footnotes inside the minipage!).

Command \cvitem is defined like

    \hintstyle{#2} & {#3}%

As you can see it uses a tabular to print the item. Footnotes in tabular is a problem, because tabular handles footnotes by its own, as also minipage does in different ways.

Using footnotes in such a typesetted document only generates a lot of problems, the best way to handle this is to not use footnotes inside a CV (using class moderncv, koma-cv or simular using a lot of minipages and tables for typesetting the informations)!

For me it is a sign for a bad prepared CV if you really need footnotes inside it (I saw a lot of CVs and the good ones never contains footnotes). Better rephrase your CV then!
