LaTeX Resume Templates
It is possible to create beautiful, aesthetically pleasing, well structured, great resumes using LaTeX. Here I have collected a number of resources that offer LaTeX templates for creating structurally sound resumes.
What is LaTeX ?
LaTeX is a TeX macro package, originally written by Leslie Lamport, that provides a document processing system. LaTeX allows markup to describe the structure of a document, so that the user need not think about presentation. By using document classes and add-on packages, the same document can be produced in a variety of different layouts.
LaTeX is available for Linux, Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X. Learn how to install LaTeX in Ubuntu Linux.
