## LaTex: Modern CV

Some notes on the LaTex modern cv package: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/moderncv/

A new section can be created using\section

A new entry can be generated using \cventry{year}{degree/job title}{institution/employer}{localization}{grade}{description}

### Change the column width

I want to have the dates in the format month/year – month/year. To this end I wanted to change the width of the first column. Usefull links:

http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/7076/change-column-width-modern-cv

Final Solution: (from moderncv.cls, search command \cventry)

\setlength{\hintscolumnwidth}{0.18\textwidth}
\recomputelengths

### cventry

The last argument of the \cventry-command is typeset in \small Therefore one can use

\cventry{date}{}{}{}{}{}
\cvline{\small date}{subpoint}

to obtain the same as

\cventry{date}{}{}{}{}{subpoint}

just with another date in front.

### Use SmallCaps

I have problems to use the \textsc- Command to format text in smallcaps
