This is intended as a template for creating a CV and a cover letter. I suggest that you fork this repository and then fill in the template with your own data. If you think that the template can be improved, please send a pull request!


The template is written in LaTeX, therefore you need LaTeX installed. The packages used are:

  • geometry
  • mathpazo
  • hyperref

These packages are fairly standard, most LaTeX distributions includes them.


To generate a pdf for the CV, run:

make cv

To generate a pdf for the cover lettter, run:

make cover_letter

If you want to remove all files created by LaTeX (including all pdf files), run:

make clean


This is based on a template found at http://jblevins.org/projects/cv-template/, which states the following:
