:necktie: A collection of cv and resume templates written in LaTeX. Leave an issue if your language is not supported!Project mention: Resume Spacing | /r/LaTeX | 2023-02-03
I generally avoid sending Word documents. IMO scanning PDFs is nowadays good enough to deal with LaTeX-generated PDFs. And when it comes to the templates... Personally I use LaTeX generated.

Would someone be able to give me some advice on improving my CV? | /r/UKJobs | 2023-03-23
Beyond that, you could do better on the layout. If you're familiar with LaTeX, it may be worth the investment to create a resume using it. Overleaf has some great templates, they're all free, and in general I found that my response rate improved a lot when I ditched the MS Word appearance for something cleaner like the Russell template.
