Latex CV template?

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey,

I've spent a little while trawling the internet for a latex template suitable for an application for a quant role.
I thought it would be simple and there are a few examples but what I really want is something that will show in a quite simple way that I have actually used latex to format the document. Most things I find I could probably make in Word and I want something more but not too showy. If anyone has a template for an application that has been successful that would be perfect. If not a suitable template would be ideal.

Many thanks :-)
Richard

Why is this at all important or necessary? (Hint: It's not.)

You are likely having difficulty since most CVs on the net are geared toward academic roles. I know absolutely nothing about applying for non-academic jobs, other than you want a short resume. I don't know if that applies to quants or not.

Here are some CV links:
My personal favorite (and the one mine is based off): http://www.tedpavlic.com/post_resume_cv_latex_example.php
Simpler one: http://jblevins.org/projects/cv-template/
Another one: http://www.biostat.harvard.edu/~paciorek/computing/Latex_template_creating_CV_.html [Broken]

Again, I don't know how useful they will be for a quant job. But it has successfully hooked me up with a postdoc.
