Preamble

A This article deals with writing the curriculum vitæ both in general and with L TEX. The first part (par. 2 and 3) analyzes the guidelines on how to write the curriculum vitæ and can be applied to any text editor. The second part (par. 4 and 6) requires A an elementary knowledge of L TEX, which can be obtained from a basic guide [7, 8, 25, 28] or from a more comprehensive book [21, 23]. After analyzing styles and structures (par. 2), the article suggests some effecA tive ways to write a curriculum vitæ (par. 3). Since L TEX will be used for composing the curriculum vitæ, the main sections review the available classes and packages (par. 4) and give some recommendations on how to customize them (par. 6).

would like to thank Claudio Beccari, Lance Carnes and especially Valeria Angeli and Caterina Mori for their suggestions.
