Did you know that 77% of employers Google their applicant's name? Give them something impressive to find! A one-page website is a great link to include on your resume. A website will not only show them that you are tech-savvy, but also give them a more holistic view of who you are. An impactful professional website gives you an edge over other candidates. Here's how easy it is to create a one-page resume website!

REGISTER YOUR NAME AS A DOMAIN

Registering your name as a domain is a great start to your professional website. Registering your name allows you to have an email like contact@[YOUR NAME].com, which is perfect to put on your resume or business card. Some great domain extensions to use for this purpose are .ME , .CEO, .PW or .CAREER or a domain extension specific to your industry. Since you get a free one-page website with every domain you buy from Dynadot, you're all set to start creating your website!
