About

Versatile CV Typeset in LaTeX (XeTeX). Lots of features for modern CVs and Resumés. Works for classic CVs, modern CVs, and academic CVs. Typeset beautifully, without the need to actually know design. Modification of the friggeri-cv Latex template with extended colour palette and a choice of libre fonts.

Features:

  • Two Column
  • Information-dense
  • Fontawesome Icons
  • Skill Scoring
  • Publication List
  • Multiple Fonts
  • Student-Friendly

How it looks:

Example how a CV with this template can look like page 0 Example how a CV with this template can look like page 1 Example how a CV with this template can look like page 2

Options

Several class options are available:

Style

  • a4paper: Changes layout to A4.
  • nocolors: Changes to black and white, leaves headers.
  • print: Changes to black and white, removes header to minimize ink usage.

Fonts

  • heros: Standard TexGyre Heros font (introduced as alternative to Helvetica Neue by Sharelatex)
  • alegreya: See Example Alegreya was chosen as one of 53 "Fonts of the Decade" at the ATypI Letter2 competition in September 2011, and one of the top 14 text type systems.
  • merriweather: See Example Merriweather Sans is traditional in feeling despite the modern shapes it has adopted for screens.
  • nunito: See Example Nunito is a well balanced sans serif typeface superfamily
  • roboto: See Example Roboto has a dual nature. It has a mechanical skeleton and the forms are largely geometric. At the same time, the font features friendly and open curves.

Build Guide

You can use make to build the coverletter and CV. The default rule is to create both CV and Coverletter, but you can build both of them separately. The class options can be put into the DOCOPTIONS variable to modify the output.

Example 1: Default build

  # Create cv and coverletter
  make

  # Create only cv
  make cv

  # Create only coverletter
  make coverletter

Example 2: Build with specific DOCOPTIONS

  # Create a4 print CV
  make cv DOCOPTIONS=a4pdf,print

  # Create a4 CV and coverletter
  make DOCOPTIONS=a4pdf

\score{n}

One input integer from 0-5 (inclusive).

Example:

\score{3}

Effect

Will fill number of circle out of five circles to indicate skill level.

\courseentry{}{}{}{}{}{}

Six inputs

  1. Years
  2. Degree
  3. University
  4. Context
  5. Thesis
  6. Courses

Example

\courseentry
{2011--2012}
{Bachelor {\normalfont of Commerce}}
{The University of California, Berkeley}
{This thesis explored the idea that money has been the cause of untold anguish and suffering in the world. I found that it has, in fact, not.}
{Money Is The Root Of All Evil -- Or Is It?}
{Business for Business Gurus, Money 101}

Effect

Creates a special education-focused \entry in the the entrylist environment.

Technicalities

Modification of the friggeri-cv Latex template. Original was typeset in Helvetica and using colors inspired by Monokai. Modification uses extended colour palette and a choice of libre fonts.

Uses TikZ for the header and some pretty tricks, XeTeX and fontspec to use fonts, biblatex to print publications and textpos for the aside.

Coverletter

Options
