I am a beginner in Latex, and am trying to create a resume using the "Jake's Resume" template (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/jakes-resume/syzfjbzwjncs). I am currently trying to add a "Relevant Coursework section" in the education section, which lists the courses I take that are of my major:enter image description here

but find it difficult, as the template uses custom commands. I think that the custom command corresponding to the education section is one of these:

\newcommand{\resumeSubheading}[4]{
  \vspace{-2pt}\item
    \begin{tabular*}{0.97\textwidth}[t]{l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}r}
      \textbf{#1} & #2 \\
      \textit{\small#3} & \textit{\small #4} \\
    \end{tabular*}\vspace{-7pt}
}

\newcommand{\resumeSubSubheading}[2]{
    \item
    \begin{tabular*}{0.97\textwidth}{l@{\extracolsep{\fill}}r}
      \textit{\small#1} & \textit{\small #2} \\
    \end{tabular*}\vspace{-7pt}
}

But am not sure which, and how to modify it to include a relevant coursework section. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

This example will help you to to get started.

The new command \resumeSubSubheadingLeft will behave like you requested. It takes 2 mandatory arguments like:

\resumeSubSubheadingLeft
    {Relevant Coursework}
    {Operating System, Data Structures, Analysis of Algorithms, Artificial Inteligence,  Machine Learning, Networking, Databases, ...}

Put this code before \section{Experience}

  • Is it possible to just have a list (not vertical) after the Major, not using the custom commands if that is simpler? So that the education section would look like this: Relevant Coursework: class 1, class 2, class 3, ... (All underneath the "bachelor of arts in x" part)

  • @dphil1 Is it possible for you add a figure (even handmade) of how would like to the Coursework look like? Commented Aug 18, 2021 at 19:08
  • Something like the one in this format:overleaf.com/project/611d17495165224b16622db3 except instead of "courses" it is "relevant coursework" and in bold
