HTML Resumes: Web Designers Best Apply With an Online Application

A few weeks ago, we posted a list of creative high-end brand-new and absolutely free resume templates made either in PSD, AI or PDF formats, only one of the examples was in HTML. Artists give you hints how to spice up your CV by presenting their vision of creative realization starting from clean minimal mockups and ending up with vibrant illustration-based templates. Each sample serves as an ideal starting point whether you want to introduce yourself personally by handing a paper-based copy or send it file-based via email.

However, if you want to go a bit further, amaze your potential employer and instantly be called for an interview you should acquire a HTML-based resume template. It has lots of advantages over text-based and image-based interpretations. The key feature of such a CV is an ability to add some dynamic effects as well as provide backlinks to your clients and previous employments. Moreover, you can diversify it with brisk elements. For example, leverage animated charts, graphs and bars in order to show your level of expertise and skills. A small contact form that let your potential employer quickly connect with you will do no harm either. Generally speaking, HTML and CSS allow you to enormously improve and enrich your job application.

Of course, prototyping a topnotch template from scratch requires at least some knowledge in web development. Nevertheless, if you are not too tech-savvy you can always resort to using simple templates that, as a rule, are easily customized. Or take a ready-made template as a starting point to improve upon, while at the same time making sure you don’t omit a vital information.
