I want to change the check symbols in the upper text field to something more pleasing. How do I do it?

Also, I want to end the the text of the key points a bit earlier, so the whole thing looks more ordered.

\documentclass[
a4paper,
12pt,

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{ebgaramond}
\usepackage{ebgaramond}

  • Not clear to me, what you mean. Can you please add a screenshot to your question?

    I revised the question and attached a rather awkward screenshot that hopefully shows what I mean. Feb 4, 2023 at 12:14
  • Fine. Where do you obtain the resume class from? Don‘t see it on ctan.org .

    I used the layout package. What a nice package! (Sorry, I'm an amateur.) But how can I use \textwidth just for certain lines, e.g. the one with the key points? Feb 4, 2023 at 13:49

Now, that I can see, what resume.cls is doing, I can help you.

So, here is one way to do it, which redefines 2 macros defined in said style.

1 Changing the diamond

All you need to do is to \renewcommand this one; see the symbol catalog and make your choice, i.e. change the ding-value:

\usepackage{pifont}
\renewcommand{\addressSep}{\ding{54}}

2 Adjusting the right margin

The style uses a list-environment inside the rSubsection command. Lists accept layout relevant options, like rightmargin. So copy that code from the style, \renewenvironment, i.e. overwrite it :

  • key is this line \begin{list}{$\cdot$}{\leftmargin=0em,\rightmargin=\RM}% <<< add right list margin
  • where I introduced \newcommand\RM[0]{3cm} to set the value

That's it (besides a straying comma, but that's a different question)


P.S.: I introduced the comma. Just remove it between the two margin-specifications like here:

\begin{list}{$\cdot$}{\leftmargin=0em \rightmargin=\RM}% <<< add right list margin

result

\documentclass[
a4paper,
12pt,
]{resume}

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{ebgaramond}
\usepackage{ebgaramond}% <<< probably obsolete
\usepackage[autostyle]{csquotes}
\usepackage{microtype}

% ~~~ redefining the diamonds ~~~~~~~ <<< see https://www.ctan.org/pkg/comprehensive
\usepackage{pifont}
\renewcommand{\addressSep}{\ding{54}}% <<< overwriting definition from resume.cls


% ~~~ redefining list-margins ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
%     copy from resume.cls
%     \REnewcommand
\newcommand\RM[0]{3cm}% <<< simplification: just change the right list margin here
%
\renewenvironment{rSubsection}[4]{ % 4 parameters: company name, year(s) employed, job title and location
    \textbf{#1} \hfill {#2} % Bold company name and date to the right
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#3}{}}{}{ % If the third parameter is empty, don't output the job title and location line
        \\ % Job title and location on a new line
        \textit{#3} \hfill \textit{#4} % Output job title and location
    }%
    \smallskip % Vertical whitespace
    \begin{list}{$\cdot$}{\leftmargin=0em,\rightmargin=\RM}% <<< add right list margin
    % \cdot used for bullets, no indentation
        \setlength{\itemsep}{-0.5em} \vspace{-0.5em} % Reduce vertical spacing between items in the list for a tighter look
}{
    \end{list}
    \vspace{0.5em} % Vertical whitespace after the end of the list
}
