An online resume should be
1. Neat, consistent, printable, and easy to read
1. Create a blank document in Netscape Composer--part of communicator. Create a centered table using these dimensions: 565 x 295 pixels tall. The border width of the table should be 0, and it should have one row and one column. You can also use Composer to open this Template , select File, then Edit Page, and work with it. Make sure to save it under a new name.
2. Keep Communicator open.
Now open your resume in MS Word. Select the entire text, and copy and paste
it into the communicator window, inside the table. (NOTE: if your resume
contains complicated formatting, you should save it to text or remove the
formatting before copying and pasting it).
3. Save your Communicator document
as [your intials]_resume.html (Example: mfa_resume.html).
Save it to your disk, or, if you didn't bring one, save it in our class
share folder. NOTE: if you don't give it a unique name, like MFA_resume.html,
it will overwrite someone else's. Make sure you notice WHERE you've saved
4. Using the style features
in Communicator (bullets, bold face, etc.) Go through the resume and start
re-creating the formatting you lost when you made the transfer. Make sure
you change everything to a sanserif font (ARIAL 10 point). Save every 10
5. Create a navigation bar
near the top of your online resume. Create a table WITHIN the main table
with one row and as many columns as you have main headings on your resume.
Make sure your table has equal column widths.
6. Create an email link under your name. Highlight the name, select "link" from the composer toolbar, and type the following in the window that says "link to": mailto:[your email}. Example: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Save your file.
