Linking to a Personal Website on a Resume

Kent Nolen

Many of the creative professionals and software / web developers that I work with have on-line portfolios or personal websites. Generally speaking, it is a great idea to link to these sites from your resume so that potential employers can evaluate your work. But there is a caveat…

Hiring managers are going to evaluate the content AND the code / design of the site when considering you, so make sure you feel like your personal website or portfolio represents the best of your skills. Not just in the work you are choosing to highlight or the content of the site, the site itself. So if you are developer and your personal website is clunky, slow, or backed by inelegant code, that could be a big problem. If you are a designer, make sure your website is as visually compelling as the creative works you've curated.
