Although I dislike the idea of getting a job as much as the next guy, I recently found myself in the position of rewriting my old resume and having another go at sending it around. I also thought that a little revamping wouldn’t hurt, so I started digging around the internet for a nice template. I soon realized that most templates were either ugly, badly coded or quite expensive, so I decided to do what any student seeking a job would do: stall … and write my own.
I only managed to come up with a single design, but it does come with
2 corner types
and 3 different background patterns
each in 5 different colors
so chances are you’ll find a combination that tickles your taste.
The icons are part of the Social Media Mini Icon Pack from Komodo Media and you are required to link back to their site to use them. Awesome backgrounds courtesy of Pattern Cooler, pure CSS tooltips stolen from this page.
To change the template style (the default is green with rounded corners), just edit the “style.css” file. All you need to do is remove two lines for a new style to take effect.
Please note that the files use Unix/Linux line endings and will not display properly in silly text editors such as Notepad. If you’re using Windows, I recommend trying out Notepad++.
