Curriculum Vitae for Alan Orth

A CV written in LaTeX using the moderncv class.


Here's what it looks like with real data, using the "classic" style and blue color scheme:

Sample CV


I decided to start keeping my CV in LaTeX because:

  • I can never find my CV when I need it
  • I have dozens of files named resume.doc on my computer
  • LaTeXPDF ensures a consistent, beautiful layout
  • Writing your CV in a source-based language means you can track it in git (w00t!)


To "build" a PDF you simply type:

$ make

To clean up all generated and intermediate content, type:

$ make clean

Prerequisites for building

Depending on your GNU/Linux distribution the package names may be different. Basically, you need the texlive package, as well as whichever "extras" package contains the moderncv stuff.

On Arch Linux:

$ sudo pacman -Sy texlive-core texlive-latexextra texlive-fontsextra

On Fedora:

$ sudo yum install texlive texlive-moderncv

On Ubuntu:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:texlive-backports
$ sudo apt-get install texlive
$ sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install texlive-latex-extra

Mac OS X: download and install BasicTeX (a minimal TeXLive distribution) and then:

$ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2017basic/bin/x86_64-darwin
$ sudo tlmgr update --self
$ sudo tlmgr install collection-fontsrecommended moderncv fontawesome
