Reduce space between title and resume content

Asked by Nimitt Phommavongsa


First of all, thank you for this wonderful class. It's absolutely great! Keep up the good work.

Now, for my question :
I want to save space because I want a one page resume, and it is kind of hard with this class, although it makes me try to summarize more. I was looking for a way to reduce the horizontal space between the title generated by \maketitle and the resume content, but I didn't find it.

Could you please help me ?

You can simply insert a negative vertical space right after \maketitle:
(change the "-1cm" to whatever distance you like).

Another useful trick to get your resume to fit on 1 page is to play with the margins, through the "geometry" package:
  \usepackage[scale=0.9, top=1cm]{geometry}
(this for example sets the margins such that the body covers 90% of the paper and forces the top margin to be equal to 1cm).

Kind regards,
