Weebly, Part 2

After we posted last week about Greg Talbott’s Weebly page, one of our very own, GU senior Emily Piskulick decided to make the plunge into setting up her own Weebly page to provide all of you with a step-by-step process of just how easy it is! We also want to demonstrate to all of you students just how versatile of a service Weebly is. While Greg chose a darker, manlier theme, Emily chose a light and somewhat feminine theme, proving that you can truly make your site your own. All in all, it took Emily about 1 hour to set up her Weebly page, including picking the theme, creating different pages and transferring her resume and writing samples to the page. Learn more about Emily’s experience below!

“Hey GU Career Center followers! Last week for fun I decided to go ahead and create a Weebly page just to show you how easy and versatile of a service Weebly really is. I started by choosing one of the varied and diverse Weebly themes, which make your site look however you would like. For each theme, you can customize just about anything – fonts, colors, sizes… really anything you can think of! Then, Weebly makes it extremely easy to create different pages, add text and images, and even add videos, slideshows, documents or anything else you’d like to showcase your work. If you’d like to get really fancy, you can even buy your own domain (such as emilypiskulick.com) and get access to more complex analytics and features.”

“I would highly recommend every student takes the hour or so out of your day and set up a Weebly page – it makes it so easy to send over to possible employers with all of your information, resume and writing samples in one place!”

Be sure to check out Weebly and set up your own site – it’s a great resource, especially for students trying to score internships or jobs!
