This tool lets you put build not just a CV but gives you the ability to tell your entire story. Rather than the traditional CV layout, a Sumry CV sums up your skills, background and interests in a browsable timetable. In the free version of the tool you are able to provide a general short introduction of your work experience under the “My Story” section, as well as information about your interests in the “Personality” section. This is then backed up with facts under “Skills” and “References”, plus you are able to provide contact information and links to social networks, websites, or your portfolio. There are six design options that include different colours. Once completed, your CV is downloadable as PDF file and also viewable as a web page online!

3. branded.me/

If you’re looking for an online CV/portfolio, this is a great tool to use! And best of all, it’s incredibly easy to use! The tool pulls all the information from your LinkedIn profile and then lets you edit anything you need to edit. Your information is divided into a short bio/intro, your experience, education, skills, testimonials, and contact information. There are multiple, customisable templates to best fit you and your personality. Once you are happy with the information and design, you get a personal branded.me link (“firstname-lastname.branded.me”) but you can also buy a personalise domain and host your branded.me page there.
