There are several benefits of using LaTeX for resume writing:
- LaTeX offers more formatting and editing options than traditional text processors, such as MS Word or Google Docs.
- It’s easy to find free resume templates in LaTeX on various websites such as Reddit, GitHub, and StackExchange.
- You can use a free online LaTeX editor to create your resume without installing TeX on your computer.
However, you must remember that not all LaTeX resume templates are good for applicant tracking systems, as they may include visual elements that are not scannable.
