The web design and web developing though based on the broad principles but they are distinct. The web design will be some what like a pendulum moving repeatedly from one position to another, the positions of science and art. Web site is a pile of information and arranging this information into web pages and this in turn make up a web site. It is like a book where each page of the book is called a web page.
Web development is having a bit broader out look. It incorporate all areas of developing a web site like coding and web server configuration, client side and server side configuration. In the parlour of web professionals the web development is usually to the non design part of the making of a web site. An example of this is the writing mark up and coding. The web development is ranging from the plain text to the most multifarious web based internet applications. For big organisations the web development is organised by a team of different departments and for a smaller organisation it may be with a single web master and certain concerned departments like graphic design and Information system specialist. Thus web development is a collaborative execution rather than of a designated department.
Once I have seen somewhere a slogan “Make good people look great”. This has been followed by further statements that “But we are not plastic surgeons but only designers of a different breed, we want to make the people look great by making them and their company successful”. This was the advertisement of a web developer.
So for preparing a resume of a web developer we need not go for any frills to look it distinct from other resumes because the resume of a good web developer is distinct by itself. I think he/she has to simply state that “I am an experienced web developer and here are my credentials” In spite of this a resume has to follow certain basic norms. It is usual for a resume to bring the facts in the following heads:
- Name and details of communication
- Heading or the objective of the resume
- Educational back ground
- Special information
The name and communication details have to be shown on the top of the first page and after wards on top of all the subsequent pages. This is to facilitate the evaluator of your resume.
The web designing and developing is an art in addition to the other technical knowledge so it is natural to have an artistic feeling on seeing the heading or objective of the resume. Let us examine some of the relevant heading or objectives;
- EXPERIENCED IN POWER HOUSE VISUAL SOLUTIONS, CAN REBRAND YOUR CORPORATE IDENTITY, REDISIGN YOUR EXISTING WEB SITE AND HELP YOU REACH OUT WITH INTERNET MARKETING.
- EXPERIENCED IN PROFESSIONAL DESIGN AND TOP WEB DEVELOPMENT.
- EXPERIENCED IN WEB APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT AND WEB PAGE ANIMATION AND FLASH DESIGHN.
- CAN DEVELOP YOUR E COMMERCE SOFTWARE AND SHOPPING CART DESIGN
- A WEB DEVELOPER WITH A PROCESS ORIENTED APPROACH RATHER THAN FOCUSSING ON MARK UP LANGUAGE OF HTML OR SYNTAX.
These are some of the visualisation came into my mind. This is not exhaustive too. We can make many of such things depend on the situation.
After this we go for the experience part, and it has to be with the experience you have very recently or if you feel that you had the distinguished experience when you had taken the first assignment. But in any case you have to put forward with the best first. But to be on the safer side, be on the chronological order. In each experience part be sure that your best results are highlighted.
Then your educational back ground. For a web developer your basic qualification won’t matter much but your professional qualification. But if you have colourful educational background of education by all means express it.
Finally as the last paragraph please make sure to show some of the special assignments you have undertaken and how it has affected the organisation.
So we wish you all the best for a finest career in web developing.
