Sample CV

When I decided to go back to grad school, I passed my old resume to an industry friend who does a lot of hiring. He walked me through his mental evaluation. "So here's a section on Papers... and here a section on Patents... how do they time up with your Experience? Hmmm, here's a three-year gap, what happened there? So you started a PhD program but I don't see a degree... what's that all about?" Rather than let the reader assume the worst (three years of rehab? Failed out of grad school?), I decided to provide the missing intel—in a clear, easy-to-parse chronological layout that highlights what belongs together. Enter gbmj-timeline-cv: a three-column graphical curriculum vitae written in LaTeX. Two thumbs up from the industry friend. Get it at GitHub.
