For details, please see the Scismic Website. I get access to these because I am signed up on their website (free).

If you are interested in a career within Biotech then these webinars are really worth checking out, as is Scismic. I would also recommend the CV template workshop they did in association with Overleaf a while back. Please see the Overleaf Webinars page for more details.

However these webinars / workshops are interesting anyway and have some useful ideas / advice etc.

LaTeX – Customising the Overleaf / Scismic CV

I made some modification to the Scismic CV template to make it suitable for my needs, however some of these modifications may be useful to others.

Firstly the sectioning on this is excellent, especially if combined with lists

\section{Education: The Open University}
\begin{itemize}
\item Certificate in Contemporary Science, Open University, 2012 
\end{itemize}

What is also useful is being able to comment out individual entries. This is good if a specific course is not applicable to the post you are applying for. To do this just place a % at the start of the line.

%\item Planets: an introduction, (S196),                                2006

This is fine, but what about whole sections such as a specific job or volunteer entry?

Firstly add this to your preamble

\usepackage{comment} % allow comments

Then add this before and after the section you want to remove

\begin{comment}
\end{comment} 

The nice thing about this, is that by commenting these out

%\begin{comment}
%\end{comment} 

The entry is restored.

While not strictly needed you can add clickable urls in to your CV

\usepackage{hyperref} % allow urls in document
\hypersetup{
	colorlinks,
	citecolor=black,
	filecolor=black,
	linkcolor=black,
	urlcolor=black
} % set up hyperref

Goes in your preamble, while using the following makes a line of text a url which people can click, use sparingly though.

\url{http://your-url.co.uk/}

I have also added page numbers, which can be useful.

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{datetime}

\fancyhf{}
\fancyfoot[R]{}
\fancyfoot[L]{\thepage}
\pagestyle{fancy}

This is not perfect, but does work.

Hopefully these tips are helpful to people. This template is really flexible and overleaf have quite a few very professional looking templates. [6] along with cover letter templates [7].

I have added a section on jobs and employment to my forum [8].

Bullseye Presentation

A few years ago, I found that there was not an up-to-date presentation for the upcoming release of Debian at the time. I therefore set about creating one.

This is now an ongoing project, my personal remit is to keep this updated by researching information about the upcoming release(s) of Debian. The next release is Debian 11 (Bullseye) as this is now frozen then I am working on the update.

Presentation is in Beamer, which is a LaTeX package for creating presentations. I am however using Overleaf to create the document.

I am on IRC (oftc) as zleap if anyone wants to discuss further. I will also be at the DebConf Planning meeting on the 24th.

Avoiding Interview mistakes

Last night, I attended a webinar on avoiding interview mistakes. This was presented by Scismic [1], who specialise in Biotechnology. However the tips and advice given are applicable across a wide range of industries.

This was really good, and lots of really useful advice which I will be using going forward in my job search.

As I first learned about Scismic, from a CV webinar, they presented in collaboration with Overleaf. I have included a link to the Overleaf webinar page. It should be possible to view a recording of this.

LaTeX and Overleaf – Changing the compiler

A question came up on IRC earlier about Overleaf, LaTeX and compiling to use the \usepackage{arabluatex} package.

I suggested that it is possible to change the compiler to use LuaTeX and made the following video to help others with this
