Twenty Second CV - Doesn't allow accents?

Postby triarii » Sat Jun 23, 2018 5:14 pm

Hi,

I really like the 20 Second CV format in terms of presentation. It is clean and easy to look at from an HR's perpective. The problem is it is so hard to make and get it right! Not 20 seconds at all lol.

I have had several problems with it but have overcome the most through research - other ppl who have had similar problems which led me to this forum.

My problem is with accents. My language has lots of them and I need them to show correctly.

For example if i write "Résumé", this is what I get:

How can I do to remove this?

Cheers

Welcome to the forum!

Use an input encoding that matches the encoding of your editor (operating system). Such as

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

on Unix, Linux, Mac OS X and some Windows editors. Otherwise, on Windows, try

\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}

If inputenc is already in the template, adjust the option.

I have another issue with the skill and language sections. I'm trying to type this under Skills but it gives me an error:

\skills{{MS Project/3},{PowerPoint/4},{Word/4.5},{Excel/3},{Customer service/4.0}}
\languages{{X(mother language)}, {Y(Good)}, {Z(Average)}}

What am I doing wrong?


Edit: Also, can I move the language section to the right side of the CV? I'm running out of space on the left

In the template version I know, \languages is not defined. What is your version?

It probably was an older version. I did that 4 months ago but ended up getting a job back then using my old europass. So I didn't finish the 20 sec CV.

But I remember it was a column below the Skills Bars. This was the code I used:
\patchcmd{\makeprofile}{Languages}{xyz word}{}{}

In this newer version, this doesn't exist anymore?

Anyway I have no more space on the left, need to incoporate that on the right side of the cv.

Before any coding, perhaps let's be clear about the design.

Shall languages be displayed in shape of a list on the right, such as the other sections? Like "Publications"? Or do you expect a bar diagram such as in the "Skills" section? The "About me" section could simply be removed and put to the right as free text, such as "Interests", or replacing "Interests" since interests can belong to the "about me", logically. In that case, there would be enough space below "Skills".

By the way perhaps attach a .zip copy of the version of your template, if you like.

About the design, I honestly don't remember what it was like. I just remember it was below the Skills bar.

Anyway I added Languages to the right side as a Section because no space on the left.

I had no intention of removing the "about me" part. I like it.

Anyway I have finalized my CV , thanks a lot for your help and answers Stefan.

Cheers
