As the original creator of this resume template, I must say it looks rather nice! :-)

This is the .tex file I started with: http://matthewm.boedicker.org/doc/resume/resume.pdf

then I took my Word resume (that had the shading, and some other things) and converted it into this: http://www.davidgrant.ca/latex_resume_template

I made it because I loved my Word resume and I didn't like any of the LaTeX resumes out there on the Web. I also hated Word and loved using LaTeX.

It made it into CTAN as a .sty file thanks to the efforts of George Louthan: http://georgerloutha.nthefourth.com/projects/tucv http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/tucv

Example using tucv package: http://mirror.its.dal.ca/ctan/macros/latex/contrib/tucv/tucv...

Personally, I hate using .sty or .cls for a resume. I think using a .tex file as it allows full customization/tweaking of the entire file, easily. A resume isn't something that can be easily generalized to a .sty or .cls IMO.

Thank you for making the original template! I've used it for the past few years and it has been great!
