In class on Tuesday, I asked you to find two well-designed online résumés and come to class on Thursday ready to share what you found. I’ll start things off with a few of my own links:
- Sample Resume Template — This site hosts a very professional résumé template that you can download and customize. Since we are developing our own résumé designs for this assignment, please don’t use this template as-is. However, you may want to refer to it for inspiration.
- Derek N. Mueller — Dr. Mueller’s curriculum vitae (an academic résumé) is simple (note the lack of color), but incredibly effective, thanks to excellent organization and bold headings.
- Kathleen Fitzpatrick — Dr. Fitzpatrick’s c.v. is a great example of how a résumé can function as part of a WordPress site. Notice how easy it is to navigate the page, and pay particular attention to the use of sidebars on the right-hand side of the page.
- Tanya Merone — A beautiful one-page résumé/portfolio, completely unlike the other examples linked above. This is a great example of how to incorporate visual material into a résumé, and it may give you ideas for the homepage portion of your project.
Please respond to this post with links to the résumés you found. If possible, write a sentence or two about why you like each résumé. If you’d like to post links to more than two résumés, please feel free to do so.
