Converting my pdf resume from latex into a doc file so that maybe I'll hear back on some of my internship applications. Apparently resume filters are not good with pdfs still?

@ksteimel I have a résumé and use to convert to just about any format. Makes things so much easier.

I'm working towards having a markdown résumé. What's stopped me so far is that résumés are so graphical documents that I can't resist the urge to manually tinker with margins, different fonts etc. But I think in terms of easily keeping it updated, markdown and a sensible template is the way to go.

@mmin @ksteimel I could send you my HTML and LaTeX templates if you're interested. Can be seen here:

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
