Resume template for HTML/Dreamweaver website

Does anyone have a recommendation for a high quality website template for a Resume?

I know there are tons out there; I just don't know if any one stands out as the "gold standard" for Resume website templates.

Thanks
Mark

For what type of resume?   If you are a javascript developer you will probably have an interactive and unique mini site that nobody else has.  If you are a sales executive, you may have some charts showing your upward progress and a more formal downloadable  pdf or text.

I don't think this is really a dreamweaver question as it is layout.    What type of position is this for?

I am building a website (that I also want to put on a flashdrive) for a Pastor of a United Methodist Church. She is applying for an administrative job in the Church headquarters.

I could use Wordpress since there are a ton of themes for Resumes available, but I don't want to have to run a database program and worry about how to put that on a flash drive.

I would also like to have an option where viewers could download and print the resume.

Ideally the website should be responsive so viewers could also look at it on a smartphone.

Thanks
Mark

You just need a simple html page and a pdf of the print version. Use http://getbootstrap.com/ and make a traditional 2 column responsive resume.

Scott,

How can I create the resume so that I can have  headings on the left side that track with the content on the right side. For example:

Employment:                   Job1
                                          (description)
                                          Job2
                                          (description)
                                          ...
                                          Job N
                                          (description)

Education:                        School 1
                                          (description)
                                          School 2
                                          (description)
                                          ...
                                          School N

If I add more Jobs, the length of the Employment section will get longer, but I still want "Education" to line up with School 1.

It seems this is pretty easy with tables, but is there a better way to do this?

Thanks
mark

If you look at the sample I gave you it already does that.  It is based on bootstrap http://getbootstrap.com/css/ which is a responsive grid meaning it can change from mobile to desktop.  If you look at the original link I gave you on your phone, you would notice the dates are over the content.  If you look at it on a screen over 700 px wide, it will look like your sample.  

I updated the class so it will not stack here http://jsbin.com/aheFAHEj/2/edit by changing the class so the columns will always stay in columns no matter the size of the screen.

<div class="row">
     <div class="col-xs-2">Employment:</div>
     <div class="col-xs-10">
            <p>
                 <strong>Job1</strong><br>
                  (description)
             </p>
            <p>
           <strong>Job2</strong><br>
           (description)
            </p>
           <p>
           <strong>JobN</strong><br>
           (description)
            </p>
     </div>
</div>

With actual content, as you go to the xs screen (phone), the word, "Employment" bleeds over to the right side.  This is why stacking on the small screen is nice.  
<div class="row">
     <div class="col-xs-12  col-sm-2">Employment:</div>
     <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-10">
            <p><strong>Job1</strong><br>
               Vivamus suscipit, nibh sit amet condimentum scelerisque, dui turpis rhoncus justo, quis vehicula tortor lectus eget nisi. Nullam leo orci, interdum quis nunc sed, imperdiet lacinia nisi. Proin a eros diam. Praesent lacinia rutrum quam vel porta. Nam vitae enim nisl. 
            </p>
            <p><strong>Job2</strong><br>
             Vivamus suscipit, nibh sit amet condimentum scelerisque, dui turpis rhoncus justo, quis vehicula tortor lectus eget nisi. Nullam leo orci, interdum quis nunc sed, imperdiet lacinia nisi. Proin a eros diam. Praesent lacinia rutrum quam vel porta. Nam vitae enim nisl. 
            </p>
           <p><strong>JobN</strong><br>
           Vivamus suscipit, nibh sit amet condimentum scelerisque, dui turpis rhoncus justo, quis vehicula tortor lectus eget nisi. Nullam leo orci, interdum quis nunc sed, imperdiet lacinia nisi. Proin a eros diam. Praesent lacinia rutrum quam vel porta. Nam vitae enim nisl. 
           </p>
     </div>
    </div>

Look at this version above without the code http://jsbin.com/aheFAHEj/3/ and make  your screen narrow and wide and you can see what I mean.  I updated the top portion but left the bottom.

Thanks Scott,

So I am a little confused: which version should I be using?

I would go with stacking the columns on a small screen.  (The bottom of your selected answer).

I'm glad it worked out for you.
