I’ve made a resume once in my life, but never used it when looking around for jobs. This was because most of the jobs had their own applications which essentially served as a resume. But for the past week or so, I’ve been looking around for a new webdesign position to get more experience with other places, and to get my foot in the door with a larger corporation as opposed to a couple of guys running a small consulting firm.
All of these jobs require a resume to be sent in via email and/or fax. However, because my field is webdesign, the best way to approach this is by designing a resume template for my private website. Not only does it state my objective, experience, skill, and education but it also shows them right off the bat what kind of design skills I’m capable of. However, while designing it, I figured that although it showcases my skill, other people might benefit from the resume template.
The template was designed with smaller resolutions in mind. Therefore the width is static, and is set for 700px. Anything in this template can be changed in regards to font family, font size, colors, you name it. I don’t require that you give me credit for it, however it is welcomed and appreciated. I just ask that you do not take credit for this in your resume or portfolio. I’m sure you can figure out on your own why you wouldn’t want to do that.
If you want to see a working preview of it, you can visit atourworst.org/resume. If you want to go ahead and grab the template files, visit atourworst.org/resume/source.php. There are other files involved that you will have to download if you want to use the same format from the resume. I’ve listed them all in the source, so you’ll be able to download them from their original websites.
If you see a need for improvement or have any critiques, feel free to share them. I’m all ears.. err, eyes?
