[Tex/LaTex] Formatting resume header!

cvtitles

Earlier I created a resume successfully and it was easy thanks to your support 🙂 I noticed that my resume tends to be big and consume too much space and after reading some PR interview I am thinking of revisiting my resume.

enter image description here

Now I was trying to go for something like above but unfortunately I wasn't able to replicate the above format.

I tried using tables but I wasn't able to format the text inside it nor I was able to provide line break (in one cell- as show in address and contact above)

It'd be great if you can help me a bit since similar format is followed throughout the resume 🙂

Since I'm unfamiliar with the extent of this usage, the following is an adequate replica that could be extended (I assume) to suit your needs:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}% http://ctan.org/pkg/geometry
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\begin{document}
\sffamily%
{\small\begin{tabular}[c]{l}
  123 Spruce St, Apt 35 \\
  Philadelphia PA 19103
\end{tabular}}\hfill%
{\Large\bfseries\begin{tabular}[c]{c}
  GAYLE LAAKMANN
\end{tabular}}\hfill%
{\small\begin{tabular}[c]{r}
  (555) 555-1212 \\
  gayle@careerup.com
\end{tabular}}%

\bigskip

\begin{tabular}{p{\dimexpr\linewidth-2\tabcolsep}}
  \textbf{Employment} \\
  \hline
  {\bfseries Software Engineer, Intern \qquad Apple Computer \hfill Summer 2004} \\
  \quad iChat AV
\end{tabular}
\end{document}

The title is set using vertically centered tabulars, while the subsequent structure detailing experience/employment is set in a paragraph-style tabular, the width of which spans exactly \linewidth.
