Working on cv in latex

December 14, 2006

More LaTex fun. I realized I could create both a CV and a Resume using LaTex by separating out the sections (education, publications, work experience, awards) into individual files. LaTex has an \input{filename} function which is useful for splitting large documents up. It just inputs whatever text is in that file like you had typed it in the main file. Once I break up the parts, such as education, publications, work experience into different files I can create an uber document that references things appropriate for the CV, and another referencing only those appropriate for the resume. Then I only need to edit the appropriate section file and it updates both, yay LaTex.
