A three-column graphical curriculum vitae

What

This template provides a potential employer/school with all the connecting glue that most resume formats leave out. The usual suspects -- degrees, jobs, skills -- occupy boxes in the left and right columns, so the reader can still get that traditional bullet-point overview. The middle column tells the relevant bits of your life story, in a natural chronological order that provides context for where you've been and what you've done. You can use it to explain gaps in employment, add detail to the quick-glance side entries, and display your personality.

Why

When I decided to go back to grad school, I passed my old resume to an industry friend who does a lot of hiring. He walked me through his mental evaluation. "So here's a section on Papers... and here a section on Patents... how do they time up with your Experience? Hmmm, here's a three-year gap, what happened there? So you started a PhD program but I don't see a degree... what's that all about?" Rather than let the reader assume the worst (three years of rehab? Failed out of grad school?), I decided to provide the missing intel -- in a clear, easy-to-parse chronological layout that highlights what belongs together.

How

This is a LaTeX2e template that compiles with either XeLaTeX or LuaLaTex. You can upload the files to ShareLatex.com (a personal account is free) to edit and compile them online.
