Separating Experience Section over pages

Postby uuppal » Wed Dec 09, 2015 4:33 am

I have two subsections in my experience section. Within these two subsections, I have multiple entries. Unfortunately, the second subsection is too long to fit on the first page, and instead of splitting into two parts, the entire subsection gets moved to the second page leaving awkward whitespace on the first page. I was wondering what I need to change to fix that. Sorry if this is a simple fix, I am new to LaTeX.

Thanks

Welcome,

it is not possible without changing how the template works, i.e. a 100 percent change.

Of course, you an just split the entrylist environment in two parts.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

You can use longtabu environment to do this:

  1. \RequirePackage{longtable}
  2. \RequirePackage{tabu}
  3.  
  4. \setlength{\tabcolsep}{0pt}
  5. \newenvironment{entrylist}{%
  6. \begin{longtabu} to \textwidth {@{\extracolsep{\fill}}ll}
  7. }{%
  8. \end{longtabu}
  9. }
  10. \renewcommand{\bfseries}{\headingfont\color{headercolor}}
  11. \newcommand{\entry}[4]{%
  12. #1&\parbox[t]{11.8cm}{%
  13. \textbf{#2}%
  14. \hfill%
  15. {\footnotesize\addfontfeature{Color=lightgray} #3}\\%
  16. #4\vspace{\parsep}%
  17. }\\}
