I do something similar, including your use of top level headings for the
major sections.  However, I use koma-script's article class (scrartcl,
my default latex class) and then have the following in my org file:

#+begin_src org
  ,#+latex_header: \usepackage{fancyhdr}
  ,#+latex_header: \usepackage[includefoot,margin=2cm]{geometry}
  # -------------------- Change the section headings to stand out a little more
  ,#+latex_header: \usepackage{titlesec}
  # -------------------- remove boxes etc. from links as they look ugly on a 
printed document

  ,#+latex_header: \pagestyle{fancy} \fancyhead{} 
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt} \fancyfoot{} \lfoot{Curriculum Vitae} 
\cfoot{} \rfoot{Eric S Fraga -- \thepage} \thispagestyle{empty}
  ,#+latex_header: \setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
  ,#+latex_header: \setlength{\parskip}{5pt}
  ,#+latex_header: \sloppy

I could have put all of these in a separate org latex class but since
it's a one-use class, I thought it made more sense to have the
customisations in the org file.  YMMV, of course ;-)

As my cv is rather long, I put a table of contents on the second page
after all of my personal details.

For my list of publications, I use the =etaremune= (enumerate backwards)
environment, as in:

#+begin_src org
  ,#+latex_header: \usepackage{etaremune}

  (much later)
  ,#+attr_latex: :environment etaremune
  1. most recent publication
  2. older one
  3. and so on
