The Definitive Guide to Building a Personal Website

This page is going to help you create something better than just a resume. Most experts will tell you that your resume is your #1 networking tool, I’m no expert but I can tell you from experience it isn’t. It’s having a personal website.

A resume is pretty boring if you ask me. Put yourself in an experts position, looking through hundreds if not thousands of white one-page, Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri font type, and 10-12 font size, no pictures, no personality. C’mon where’s the personality?

How is that suppose to make you different than the rest of the candidates?

Another problem I found with having a resume, was how fixed and out of date it becomes when you submit it to a recruiter. If you wanted to make changes to that resume you gave to someone, then you’d have to send them a new one.

This adds more reasons to building a personal website.

If you’re a student or professional (or unemployed), then you’d need one to show prospective employers how good you are and what you can do, so that they might hire you.

A personal website is the contrary to that resume. Say goodbye to your old resume, and say hello to your new website. Once you’ve successfully finished you’ll realize the opportunities you might have missed.

If you ask a web design agency which is better, you’re never going to hear one recommend a template.

Think about it, if you believe that you and your business are unique and you want to communicate this message, well then your website needs to reflect this.

Almost every business works differently and you’re not going to find a template that function to your requirements.

The point I’m trying to make is, the keyword “custom web design”. And it all depends on what that customer wants or more specifically, what that customer needs.
