Welcome to Week 18 and a CTE Red Day
No School next week Monday – January 15th
We have two weeks to end Quarter 2 – so that means 9 days. The only project we’ll be working on for a grade will be the portfolio. The deadline for all deliverables is January 19th – on the server! I am not going to tell you how to organize yourself – that should be up to you.
Happy Belated Birthday to our newest adult – Logan King! Congratulations!

10:15 The Visual Resume – Portfolio Option
A visual resume is a nice addition to your traditional resume. Above are some examples that showcase some different ways to making your Resume Page on your Portfolio standout.
The advantage of a visual resume is it draws the eye to your webpage and does not have to include everything on your resume, just the items you think are most exciting or interesting. Going outside the traditional resume give your viewer something exciting to look at.
Harper’s example was made in Illustrator (you can use Photoshop too) and then saved as a .jpg. Harper created a call to action button on the page to get the user to download the full PDF version of the resume. (Harper was a CAWD2 student)
Emile’s is a nice example of mixing a hero image and some basic html which includes two columns below the image.
Here’s another example from a previous student – made in Illustrator.
A visual resume is a nice option to spice up your page and make it stand out. It is not a requirement but having a resume page is required.
Other things you could consider doing on your Resume Page:
- Create a heading of Resume Highlights and list a bunch of highlights
- Add CSS to your HTML resume (if you coded a HTML resume) to get some custom looks – Student Example
- Add the display element to create a drop down effect
- Add an accordion
- Highlight some of your most meaningful skills – Example – and he’s still using his portfolio!
All Resume Pages must have a downloadable PDF version available
A good way to add a downloadable resume is to save a version as a PDF in your files. Then encourage people to have a look at it with a call to action button – check out what I mean – I made one as an example. A call to action button is a high contrast button with a call to action (“Download Resume”)
If you want a window to open up in a new tab – just be sure to add target=”_blank”
<a href="#linktoyourresume" target="_blank" class="button">Resume</a>
//if you want it to auto download you can just add the word download:
<a href="#linktoyourresume" class="button" download>Resume</a>
ProTip: When naming your resume include a datestamp: BohmannResume2024.pdf

Use your time well. The quicker you code your site, the sooner you can add more features. Don’t get hung up on the small things. Things like margin, padding, color changes can all be handled after you have your site up and running. You are doing ok if:
- You created an html page for all your pages (index.html, resume.html, bestworks.html, funfacts.html)
- Your pages are connected
- You have selected all your media
- Your about me is your landing page (index.html)
- Your wireframe for desktop and mobile is done and you are deep into your coding
- ProTip – code your structure then make it look nice
