I seem to have problem adding footnotes (e.g., using \footnote command) to the sample, do you know what can be a problem? Thank you.

Dan

Hi Dan,

This is a bit of a hack but it works. Include this in the preamble: `\usepackage{footmisc}` then wherever you want a footnote use: `\footnotemark[1]`. This will print a small superscript footnote number at the position. Finally, just outside the block that the footnote is used in, you need this to specify the text for the footnote: `\footnotetext[1]{some text}`. For example:

`\subsection{Vocational}\footnotetext[1]{some text}\cventry{2012--Present}{1\textsuperscript{st}Year Analyst}{\textsc{Lehman Brothers}}{Los Angeles}{}{Developed spreadsheets\footnotemark[1]for risk analysis on exotic derivatives on a wide array of commodities(ags, oils, precious and base metals), managed blotter and secondary tradeson structured notes, liaised with Middle Office, Sales and Structuring for bookkeeping.}`

I am sorry but that does not seem to work for me!
Even if I take your example and copy & paste it into my cv...

`\cventry{TEXT}{TEXT}{TEXT\footnotemark[1]}{LOCATION}{}{TEXT}`

if I want to add a footnote in a `\cvline` then it works fine

`\cvline{}{TEXT\footnotemark[1]}`

How can I get a footnote into the cventry?

Hi,

I just noticed there was a missing closing bracket at the end of my example above. When I added `\usepackage{footmisc}` to the preamble and pasted in:

`\footnotetext[1]{some text}\cventry{2012--Present}{1\textsuperscript{st}Year Analyst}{\textsc{Lehman Brothers}}{Los Angeles}{}{Developed spreadsheets\footnotemark[1]for risk analysis on exotic derivatives on a wide array of commodities(ags, oils, precious and base metals), managed blotter and secondary tradeson structured notes, liaised with Middle Office, Sales and Structuring for bookkeeping.}`

The footnote compiled as it is supposed to.
