Hey all. In the midst of a busy week I completely forgot to check back on this. Thanks everyone for the responses. I guess the template request got more attention than the content piece, but that's cool. smile.gif

Hadn't seen that before, I'll give it a whirl. Thanks!

Yep, mine is about as boring as that and I have not had any trouble getting employment. The thing just gets scanned for keywords and barely read anyway. Graphic designers need to worry about making it pretty. I put effort into my cover letters though (content-wise, not design).

Mine's pretty classic like that one as well. The problem is that the way I formatted it originally has made it difficult to work with down the road, so I need to fix that.

So, regarding this... as I mentioned, mine looks decent at the moment, but it's inflexible because of the way I formatted it. Word works, and I'm acceptable at it, but in my experience formatting can be clunky. Although I hadn't thought of using latex (only have used a few times, in a class last spring); is there an easy environment to get set up in? I had to jump through a bunch of hoops to get it going for class, if I remember correctly.
