[Tex/LaTex] LaTeX template for resume/curriculum vitae


If you have a TeX'ed resume, did you use a template or make your own? Are there any useful packages? What looks the most professional? How about special considerations for different areas of work (e.g. in academia)?

For my current CV, I ended up using moderncv. It doesn’t have many features but it is very easy to use and yields a very elegant output.

However, I also want to mention its drawbacks: customising it isn’t easy, especially since it doesn’t really use a clean, semantic markup. For example, to specify multi-column properties, you actually need to specify the items in an odd order (namely line by line instead of column wise).
