Questions about resumes for a web designer/developer

Hi, I have a couple of job offers for some part time web design/development work. The companies offering want me to send them a resume. Now I know how to make a traditional resume using something like microsoft word. But, some of my design professors at school were telling me that the uniqueness of presentation of a resume/portfolio is very helpful in landing jobs.

Does anyone know of a site that has some contemporary/flashy examples of web design resumes? Or do you have any advice on building a web design resume/portfolio? My goal here is to get an idea of what would be acceptable and professional to submit to a professional company. Thank you in advance for any help.
