My dear developers and designers, this one is for you!
If you are currently searching for full stack developer or UI/UX designer jobs, 2021 is your year if you ask me. With ongoing pandemic measures and shift to remote working, there are plenty of job opportunities for you out there right now.
I’ve coached quite a few developers and designers in the last 6 months, and I can honestly tell you that the way you write your resume is the deal-maker or deal-breaker when it comes to landing the job you want.
8 out of 10 developer’s resumes I read have these mistakes:
⭕ You don’t have a link to your portfolio/GitHub/Stack Overflow/HackerRank, or worse, you have the links, but your pages are a mess
⭕ Your summary is non-existent or tells pretty much nothing important to an employer
⭕ You forget to list your projects, together with your accomplishments/outcomes
⭕ You’re not going into much depth when stating your technical expertise, or you use graphic scales to rate your knowledge
⭕ You forget to include relevant courses and certifications, or you leave this section incomplete
⭕ Your experience section is all about your job responsibilities
⭕ You have the wrong technology spelling and typos
How can you improve this?
Here are some tips on updating and structuring your resume and improving your chances for an interview. Check out the photos below.
