Create a Powerful Resumé Website Built on Squarespace

Five tips to help you create an effective resumé website using Squarespace to help increase your chances of getting your next job.

Maybe you are unhappy at your current job, or you recently graduated and are looking for your first full-time job. Creating an effective website to promote you as a professional will always be the smart move when looking for a new job.

All employers want to know about your career background and professional development. Creating a profile on LinkedIn is great for connecting and networking with colleagues, co-workers and clients; but you are limited to a profile that looks and feels like everyone else’s?

Having your own website will allow you the opportunity to establish your own personal brand. You can organize your information to showcase yourself as you want to be presented. If a recruiting company is helping you find a job, too many times I’ve seen recruiters rewrite someone’s resumé to fit the recruitment company’s resumé template. Unfortunately, recruiters are not writers and may try to make you sound like someone you are not. Don’t let this happen.

Five Ways to Test How Your Squarespace Site Looks on Mobile Devices

Before the first iPhone was held by hands outside of Apple's Cupertino headquarters in 2007, testing how your website would look for your visitors meant you needed to only check the site in a handful of web browsers. If you count both Mac and Windows versions of Safari, Firefox, and Opera, as well as Internet Explorer on Windows, that would be a total of seven different browsers on the two mainstream operating systems.

Fast-forward to today, and you can mark off the Windows flavor of Safari and add Google's Chrome for both Mac and Windows for a minimum of eight modern browsers.

However, testing doesn't stop there anymore as we now have a plethora of smartphones you will want to test on your site. Do you have a tablet? Test on that too. Oh, wait! Your buddy has the latest fill-in-the-blank device with a larger screen. You should probably ask to test on that device just to be sure everything looks as intended.
