Back in Dec 2011 I graduated from College after 4 long hard years of studying computer science and related topics. At that time, I didn’t have any significant experience as a software engineer but I knew I wanted to do web development starting out. To help get more programming interviews lined up I wrote up my resume as a web page and posted it on this site. After multiples interviews with different companies I managed to find a job I was happy with.
My old resume is still live here.
+ Simple design
+ It’s a 1 Page resume! Most candidates that I’ve interviewed have 7 page resume!
+ Only requires jQuery to run, though not needed
– Not much job experience to show
– Plain design.
– No colors! Just the standard black on white.
– Outdated tech. Used HTML 4 and CSS 2.
Fast forward to 2018 and I primary use linkedin.com and indeed.com to host my resumes.
But that changes today. I found a sickkkk resume template using twitter bootstrap 4 to make a modern resume page.
The best part is that you can host your resume on github.com for FREE. (Unfortunately, this which requires some knowledge of basic web development and git.)
+ Based off modern front-end technology using Twitter BootStrap 4
+ The resume template was a piece of cake to work with. Just modify 1 HTML file and upload your files.
+ I love the responsive design! It works on mobile AND desktops.
+ Animations + Icons + Images = Wow!
+ It’s free
– All the resume data is in a single HTML file.
– requires HTML knowledge to modify. Would be nice if there was an editor.
– The mobile view needs some work to look right. (No profile image and the section gaps are too big)
It took a few hours to get everything setup and pushed to the github repo.
