After writing my PhD thesis in LaTeX, you might think I’d be completely burned out on the topic. Much to my surprise, the exact opposite is the case. I’ve been using LaTeX at work, and I still enjoy it. I have a lot to learn, still, but I’m finding it oddly amusing, and there are some serious parallels in the pleasures of compiling a LaTeX document and those of compiling and running software successfully. Yes, I am now entirely a geek, and any hope of changing that has now been completely banished.
In any case, what got me started on a resume was a Google+ post that linked to this page: http://texblog.org/2012/04/25/writing-a-cv-in-latex/
It’s a nice template that served as the start for my resume, this time around.
The fact that I’d lost access to my previous resume during the move probably also helped spur on this project as well – and with a few recent papers coming out, I wanted to make sure I had somewhere to keep track of it all.
In any case, if you’d like to see what the resume has become, after playing with it for a while, you can find it here: http://blog.fejes.ca/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/resume.pdf
I’m aware of a few “mistakes” in the formatting, particularly in the authors’ names in the posters section, but I’ll iron those out eventually.
