I've created a CV eager for corrections. Once it is properly written it'd be converted into a template, in order to share it with the community.

Can you suggest some starting corrections or ideas? (I'm willing to implement them by my own, if I can) A brief, compilable version is pasted below:

The output so far looks like this:

    \$\begingroup\$ Did you look at the moderncv package? It's what I used, and I got some nice comments on it \$\endgroup\$ – Maarten Fabré Jun 16 at 6:05
  • \$\begingroup\$ i haven't, there are so many packages that i've preferred just to invest my time in creating something simple. But maybe I should...thanks! @MaartenFabré \$\endgroup\$ – santimirandarp Jun 16 at 9:11

Some minor comments:

  • hyperref should be loaded after the other packages (there are only few exceptions, see https://tex.stackexchange.com/q/1863/36296)

  • loading url is not really necessary because you already load hyperref

  • you specify too many values of the geometry package. The paperheight is implicitly given by the default value of your tex distribution, the bottom margin is set to 2.3cm, the top margin to 1.6cm and the textheight to 1050pt, this is one value too much because there no free length left to adjust. I would suggest to either remove the explicit declaration of the textheight or change margin=2.3cm to hmargin=2.3cm to make sure that there is at least one free length

  • \begin{tabular}{@{}lr@{}} will ensure that the bullets are nicely aligned with the left boarder of the surrounding text

  • using formatting instructions like \hspace{} in the argument of \title{} is hacky and can cause problems with the pdf meta data. As a quick fix you can provide an alternative string to be used in the pdf meta data with \texorpdfstring{tex code here}{pdf meta data here}. The clean way would be to redefine \maketitle and include all the formatting instructions there

  • If you make your work available to the community, please consider adding version information and a suitable license. For example the LPPL (Latex Project Public License) encourages the users to rename a source file before editing it. Not having multiple different versions with the same name floating around the internet will make it much easier to help users on platforms like tex.se.

    \$\begingroup\$ @santimirandarp :) Nice to see that Mr. Nobody is inclusive to robots, there is so much robot discrimination on the internet - all the mean robots.txt that exclude them from reading interesting websites! \$\endgroup\$ – samcarter Sep 18 at 12:42
