Why make a CV website?

Lets you control the message

Today, it’s common for hiring managers to Google you. What do you want to appear first? Ideally, the first result will be your professional resume page that you control and that paints you in the best light.

Helps recruiters find you

Employers don’t know your name yet, but they know the skills they’re looking for. A resume page with specific, well-written content on it will help you show up in search results for the jobs you want.

Shows that you’re web-savvy

For many jobs, it’s important to show that you’re tech literate, not stuck in the past. An online resume says that you take your career hunt seriously and that you are familiar with current web trends.

Reflects your personality

Building your own resume website lets you go beyond what people might see on paper. The best resume websites describe your skills and help employers learn about the kind of person you are, too.

Resume Website Design FAQ

  • Yes! Building your own resume website helps you stand out from other applicants, and it’s easier to build than you might think. Especially if you’re in a creative field, having your own site lets you “show” your work as much as you tell about it. It’s also a good way to help explain who you are and what you can do if you don’t have any work experience yet. Most people don’t have a personal homepage, so having one sets you apart from the stack of traditional paper applications.

  • There’s a lot you can do with a resume or CV website. In addition to describing your work experience, skills, and professional timeline, you can also add examples of your work, references and testimonials, videos, photo galleries, and all sorts of other things that wouldn’t fit in a traditional paper document.
