Deedy-Resume

A one-page, two asymmetric column resume template in XeTeX that caters particularly to an undergraduate Computer Science student. As of v1.2, there is an option to choose from two templates:

  1. MacFonts - uses fonts native to OSX - Helvetica, Helvetica Neue (and it's Light and Ultralight versions) and the CJK fonts Heiti SC, and Heiti TC. The EULA of these fonts prevents distribution on Open Source.
  2. OpenFonts - uses free, open-source fonts that resemble the above - Lato (and its various variants) and Raleway.

It is licensed under the Apache License 2.0.

Motivation

Common LaTeX resume-builders such as moderncv and the friggeri-cv look great if you're looking for a multi-page resume with numerous citations, but usually imperfect for making a thorough, single-page one. A lot of companies today search resumes based on keywords but at the same time require/prefer a one-page resume, especially for undergraduates.

This template attempts to look clean, highlight details, be a single page, and allow useful LaTeX templating.

TODO
