Improved innovative Javascript/CSS enhanced resume

Monday, November 19th, 2007

I mentioned earlier this year that I had created an enhanced resume web page for myself, by using javascript and css to display either a ‘full’ or ‘condensed’ (one-page) version of the resume, and mentioned also that it would be pretty trivial for someone to make it work for different categories if they wanted.

Well, I did just that, and you can see my newly updated innovative computer engineering javascript/CSS resume on this site now! I’ve spent a lot of this weekend working on categorizing each part, and reducing each category so that they fit into one printed page (on most systems, anyways). Its pretty unique, you should check it out.

One of the things I’ve done with this is tried to refocus it to highlight my strengths in particular areas, and focus a lot more on my security/engineering background, as opposed to just my web background. I haven’t begun my job hunt yet, but with graduation in December, that may start soon if my graduate applications don’t work out. (more…)

However, I figured a resume would be useful to share with them as well, and I only had it in MS word format. So I put it into HTML format.

However, the biggest problem with my resume is I tend to put a lot of stuff in my ‘master copy’ of my resume, and change it according to my targeted audience. So, by putting everything on the web, printing it out results in around 3 pages at this writing. Common resume advice always says to keep it under a page.

My solution: use javascript and CSS to create a resume that can serve multiple purposes! On the top of the resume, is a listbox that when switched, switches between a ‘full’ and ‘condensed’ version of my resume. The condensed version is designed to be printed out in only one page.

Heres how it works: (more…)
