I concur. I made my CV with standard classes and extensive use of the
tabular environment. Except for some work with tabular to get some columns
right, it was easy. Also, many job applications require that you
custom-tailor your CV, so the cv or curve packages (I haven't used either of
them) might not quite be right anyway?
