Create a Superstar Resume using Latex

Originally, latex document used for medium-to-large technical or scientific document, but it can be used for almost any form of publishing, in this case including a resume.

Around 2 years ago, I started building my resume using latex document, and the result is pretty impressive. For you who doesn’t have enough knowledge on this system you can try to fork my repository and modify with your own information.

Convert the tex file to PDF

Using my repository, you can generate PDF by typing:

make pdf

But, it is requires that you have docker engine in your machine.

If you have latex processor in your machine you can use the command below:

xelatex resume.tex

// or
pdflatex resume.tex

Note: My resume repository tested in Linux Environment. You’ll need to install latex processor in your non-Linux machine that equivalent with xelatex on Linux

I never been this confident with my resume. Building your resume using Latex is not bad at all.
