I’ve been working on my resume for a couple of weeks. Actually, I’ve been thinking about my resume for a couple of weeks and I finally forced myself to get started on it. Since my position as a literacy coach has been eliminated for the coming school year, I wanted to create a resume that was flexible enough to use for any variety of positions that may happen to become available. I’ve played around with numerous web tools that I could use in addition to a traditional paper resume format. I ended up deciding to create a resume blog in Blogger. Right now I am adding page tabs across the top with titles such as Education, Experience, Leadership, and Goals. I wanted to create and embed a timeline into the Experience page and experimented with several tools. I first tried out Tiki-Toki which is visually stunning and very easy to use. The only problem is that in order for me to embed a timeline I create, I have to pay a minimum fee of $6.00 per month. Scratch that. Then I tried Timeglider. It had the features I wanted and I could create up to 3 timelines for free and embed them into my resume blog. But, it wasn’t as intuitive as Tiki-Toki. Still not satisfied, I tried Dipity. I thought I had found exactly what I was looking for. It was super easy to use, I liked the look of the timelines, and I could embed what I created. I played with it a bit and found that when the timeline was displayed, it was covered with ads. Yuck. If I wanted to pay an extra $5.00 per month, my timeline would be ad free. No thanks. I’m too cheap. So I ended up back with Timeglider as my choice. It will take me more time to figure out how to use it but for now, it is the timeline web tool that best fits my purposes.
