# Need help with the moderncv resume/cover letter template

I need help with this great template. It has both the resume and cover letter in one document but I'd like to make a few changes.

1. I'd like to add "job title" above summary and below email/phone in the resume. I was able to add this with some help. However, the "job title only shows on the cover letter. I'd like for it to show in the resume as well.
2. I tried to center the "job title" using \centering but it didn't work. Any way to shift it to the center?
3. The line spacing is a mess, it is not consistent throughout. Any way to make it consistent all over.
4. This template has both the resume and cover letter in it. I was wondering if I could separate both the resume and cover letter into two separate documents. That way, I'll have both versions. It'll be easier to send documents that only require to send resume or cover letter.

That adds the job title after the complete resume title centered and printed boldface ...

To your point 3: different spaces after lines.

Well, that comes from your usage of environment center around your \section{} commands (please delete them in your code) and the way LaTeX tries to bring the last line of your cv on every page on the same place/line (to get rid of that use command \raggedbottom). At last you can use an option [center] to moderncv style banking to get all your sections printed centered above the line.

Please also note that I commented your added commands \newline

and its result:

Please have a look to the bottom of page 1:

As you can see marked with red arrow 1 there is a blank space resulting because the following text (seen on page two) can not fit the blank space above (it is to long for fitting into the blank space). Rephrase the text or add an \clearpage before the section ...

Same for System Analysis and Design at the end of page 2, to get it to the next page add \clearpage before ...

• Thank you so much. I was able to fix 1 and 2, and 3. I'd really appreciate it it's possible to separate resume and cover letter. Thank you again! – Akboh Jul 30 at 22:13
• @Akboh You can divide cv and cover letter into two files. Copy your complete file cv.tex to coverletter.tex. Then delete the part for cover letter in file cv.tex and the part for cv in coverletter.tex. Voila! – Mensch Jul 30 at 22:20

• @Akboh Ups, I oversaw that, sorry. Change your code to \social[linkedin][www.linkedin.com/in/john-doe/]{john-doe} (delete the https://) then you get working links in my pdf viewer but the disadvantage now is that class moderncv adds http:// automaticaly. There is another answer of mine solving this issue, but I have to search for it ... When I found it I add an link here, okay? – Mensch Jul 30 at 23:40
