How to Make a Personalized Landing Page

Publish your own resume website in three simple steps!!
Step 0
🧠 Here’s why you need a personal website
✍🏼 Having a personal website allows you to share more dimension, flair, and personality
ex: non-professional passion projects, hobbies, etc.
📷 You can add links, emojis, and pictures
📬 It can be linked to your real resume or shared easily!!

Step 2
ℹ️ Enter your information
I recommend having your actual resume or your LinkedIn pulled up so you can easily copy and paste your information into the on the next page. I’ve also added in recommendations throughout the template on the next page that you can find easily by looking for this emoji: 💡

Remember to have fun with this step!! Your personal landing page has a lot more room for personalization that your paper resume.

💡 Personalization Ideas
👩🏻‍💻 Click on the icon next to the “About Me” section and select one that you feel represents you
😁 Add emojis you like in front of section titles to make them more engaging. Or, if you want to make your website sleeker, you can also opt to delete all of the emojis
📇 Change the font of your landing page to be Standard or Serif in page options
📸 Upload your own banner image for your landing page
If you have one on LinkedIn, you can use the same picture. If you don’t, consider using a picture of where you’re from or your school!

✨ Publish your doc!! ✨
✍🏼 Change the name of the resume page!! Puppy resume is a cute name, but you should probably change it to your own name, or just “About me”
🗑 Make sure to delete this welcome page — don’t worry, you can always find these instructions again by visiting the original template
