View gallery

Most people don’t realize how important it is to have a good resume, until they want another job, but a professional web/graphic designer will always have an updated and neat-looking resume website at the ready. If you need to make one from scratch, or look to change something about the one you already have, I’d like to tell you about three free ways to do it.

 

IM Creator

I’ve seen some resume sites launched with this platform, and they strike me as professional and inspiring eyrm really strike me as e, or change something about the one you have, I’. We all want our resumes to be attractive, but in an ideal situation, they would also be free, easy to make, and accessible to viewers, right? If you agree with me on that, then you absolutely need to check out IM Creator. It doesn’t matter if you have developing knowledge or not, this design studio will enable you to build a resume website straight from your browser in less than five minutes.

You can create everything yourself, or opt for a template and save time. I’ve seen plenty of eye-catching website themes here, and no pretentious ones, which leads me to believe that IM Creator has a top-class collection through and through – and this is rare, as far as free site building tools go. The site editor has drag-and-drop functionality, so you can easily add not just information about your professional experience, but maps of your premises, images of yourself and your work, and videos. In any case, your resume website is bound to behave flawlessly on all popular browsers, and adapt to the screen of any device – desktop, mobile phone, or tablet.

 

Resume-Website.com

My second choice would be resume-website.com, as I’ve seen some examples of websites made with this platform and wasn’t particularly impressed. Yet, this specialized builder is complete with drag-and-drop tools, and users have no trouble deciding on their template design, color, and text options. It’s very simple to customize a template, by choosing specific page layouts for your website design, as well as tweaking colors, adding textures, and so on, and so forth. Resume-website.com also has a great form builder and file upload tools, so you can incorporate files such as presentations, or calendar of events, for visitors to download. All sites created here are hosted on an advanced cloud network of servers, and a free account entitles you to 100GB bandwidth and 100MB storage.

 

Wix.com

Wix.com is the most popular website builder of this list, with over 50 million users. You can’t actually use it for free, but you can test its abundant features for as long as you wish. It’s always good to have plenty of options to begin with. However, because there are so many different functions, it may take a while to get used to them before actually creating your Internet presence with Wix. With this tool, you can build an interactive resume, where users shift through your web pages with great ease. What’s more, you can be sure that it will look great on mobile. On the other hand, if you’re looking to have a thoroughly responsive resume site, you may wish to consider IM Creator.

As you can see, each website builder has a unique set of features. IM Creator deserves more attention, as I’m sure you’ll agree when you see the professional resume websites that were made with its help.
