didn’t want a website filled with too many animations, bells, and whistles that would eventually detract from the true reason he had created his website in the first place - as a photography showcase.

Resume Writing Tips
The following tips are based on what we've learned from helping over 100,000 job seekers create a resume with our resume builder.
Resume Sections to Include
Impressing recruiters and hiring managers will be much easier if you include the info they are looking for, in the correct order. You also don't want your resume to be too long. You are likely one of many resumes and want to respect the reader's time.
- Contact information: This should be in the header of your resume and easy to find. Make sure to include your email and phone number.
- Work experience section: This is the most important part of your resume. Focus on your work experience that is most relevant to the job description you're applying for. Use short bullet points. They're easier to read quickly than paragraphs.
- Education section: Make sure to list any degrees or certificates that the job posting requests. Only include your GPA and courses if you're applying for entry level jobs.
- Other sections: You can also include skills, languages, patents, projects, etc if they are relevant to the job you're applying for. It's generally best to avoid references. Recruiters will ask for them later and they take up valuable space.
Choosing a Resume Template
While the contents of your resume are undoubtedly the most important part, a good resume template can increase your odds of getting an interview. Most requiters only spend a few seconds on their initial resume scan, you need to make them count.
If the job application requires a cover letter, you should style it similar to your resume template.
Web Designer Skills
Skills are an important part of a web designer's resume. You should analyze the job description you're applying for and make sure to include the requested skills in your work experience and skills sections. Don't include soft skills like "problem solver" on your resume. Most recruiters just ignore them.
Here are some skills that are frequently included in web designer job descriptions on our remote job board.
- Responsive website design
- Graphic design
- Accessible colors
- Usability testing
- HTML / HTML5
- CSS / CSS3
- Web page optimization
