Free WordPress Resume Theme: Create an Online Resume in Minutes

Presenting yourself online as a professional is quickly becoming far more important than the traditional paper resume. One of the fastest ways to create an online resume is to use a WordPress resume theme on your own domain. This gives you the advantage of being found by search engines for your skills and experience.

Elegant Resume is a new free theme that you can use to get up and running for nothing more than the price of a domain registration and some cheap hosting. It’s a bold, attractive theme that will help potential employers get a summary of your skills, education and distinctions.

Elegant Resume Features:

  • Search Engine friendly
  • Single page layout
  • Customizable typographic header
  • Print ready stylesheet
  • 3 color schemes
  • Twitter feeds integration
  • Google Maps Integration
  • Working contact form
  • Lightbox gallery
  • Social Media Integration

You can use the sidebar area to add text, RSS Feeds, videos, and anything else that will help you to stand out from the crowd. What I like about this theme is that it allows you to input many different types of content without touching any code or having to bother with complicated formatting. The resume-specific menu options include:

  • Education
  • Skills
  • Languages
  • Awards
  • Testimonials
  • Profile Settings
  • Technologies
  • Work
  • Work Experience
  • Portfolio

View the live demo to see how the theme fits all of this information on the page in an attractive way. If the person viewing your resume is still a little bit old school and wants a hard copy, there’s an option to view a printable PDF resume as well.

Having your resume online also makes it very easy for others to share with their friend and colleagues, which increases your prospects of landing the perfect job. If you’re actively looking for work, take a few minutes to download the free Elegant Resume theme and start getting found online.
