WP Resume is an out-of-the-box solution to get your resume online and keep it updated. Built on WordPress 3.0's custom post type functionality, it offers a uniquely familiar approach to publishing. If you've got a WordPress site, you already know how to use WP Resume.
You can see it in action or for information and troubleshooting, check out the Plugin Homepage.
- Support for sections (e.g., education, experience), organizations (e.g., somewhere state university, Cogs, Inc.), positions (e.g., bachelor of arts, chief widget specialist), and details (e.g., grew bottom line by 15%, president of the sustainability club)
- Supports multiple resumes, on the same page, or on their own
- Follows best practices in resume layout and design
- One click install, just start adding content
- Drag and drop ordering of resume elements
- Outputs in hResume compatible format using HTMl5 semantic tags
- Can output as plain text for pasting into job applications
- Automatically saves revisions of every change you make
- The WYSIWYG editing experience you know and love
- Integrates with your theme like they were made for each other (via a shortcode)
- Spanish, Portuguese (BR), and French Translation Support
- Does not use pretentious accents on the word "resume"
- Extremely original title
Under the hood:
- Built on existing WordPress code, utilizing a single custom post type and two custom taxonomies
- JSON API so you can use the data anywhere
- Support for custom templates and CSS files (like a child theme, just place them in your theme directory)
- Plugin API hooks for developers to build on
The hardest part of getting your resume online should be doing the work listed on it, not wrestling the publishing platform. Simply put, WP Resume steps aside and lets your experience shine.
