Like the rest, I picked straight LaTeX, as it just felt like forcing Org to do something unnatural, in my opinion. At least, if you get into any sort of formatting stuff, it just didn't feel right. Here's some other mailing list discussions if you haven't run into them:

And a github repo:

I still have a bookmarks folder in Chromium from when I was hunting around. Here are the ones that, apparently, I found worth to make the Ctrl+D cut for future reference if you're interested

I haven't updated mine since 2011, when I updated it for my current job. I went with an internal CV so that I could list accomplishments that would be considered confidential (patent applications, internal reports, etc.). I did create a dummy version, which I've attached (tex/pdf). Re-looking at it, I can't decide if I still like it or not. At the time, I was really happy with it as my first LaTeX CV :) I'd also probably consider it a hybrid CV/resume -- I liked describe some of my previous job responsibilities, while including papers/presentations/etc.

Good luck!

Hi Rainer,

like Tory I prepare my CV using latex directly. I've been using
"moderncv" for several years now and have been quite happy with it
(though that was before I've started using org). But even now, I can't
see how using org, would add to what I already have.

Mind you, I tend to add to my CV (mainly publications and experience)
and revise it when needed, rather than adapt it to different

I keep a "Master" CV/resumé with all the gratuitous information in all categories, then make subdirs for each submission and the trimmed-down versions of my resume that I sent out. At this stage in my career–where I am still tailoring resumés to employers and not really keeping a no-holds-barred CV— this is the best workflow I've found. I'm not sure how I'd go about versioning, trimming, and tracking things as neatly in an all-org environment.
