⤵️ I’ve been reviewing a lot of resumes recently, so here is a thread of advice I’d like to give to those of you who are currently applying here and there for tech positions.
☝️ Take it with a pinch of salt as some comments might be a little subjective.
1. Take good care of your resume. Make sure there are no typos. Make sure it has enough spacing. Make sure the structure is obvious.
Make it nice.
Make it clean.
Make it consistent.
Nothing like a visually off-putting resume as a first impression.
2. Take the time to join a (personalised) cover letter. It might seem like an unnecessary burden, but it shows that you care (at least a little), took the time to write something, and made your research on the company you’re applying to. It makes a difference.
