Developer Resume Guide

    We have long been convinced that the first step towards a dream job is a good resume. This statement is almost universal for people of any age and any profession. But today we decided to separate the developers into a separate group and tell what their ideal resume should be:

    - Poorly

    // Template from any job site

    Well, here you understand everything. No personality, nothing new and interesting. It is unlikely that anyone will be interested in such a resume

    // Table The

    table is cool: visual, structural and strict. And also very boring.

    // A standard resume in doc format

    Nobody forbids you to choose the font Times New Roman (or Comic Sans, if you like to hurt people) to write down your last name / first name / phone number and other important information. But just think about it - the same resume will be with Gena, who is arranged by a truck driver and with Helen, a secretary with extensive experience. Don't you want to stand out?

    + Good

    // Neat, original resume in PDF format

    Forget about crazy infographics - let's leave it to designers and other creators. You need a template in which all your achievements, well-known programming languages, projects and interests will fit. Be sure to include a link to and your blog, if any.

    // The idea decides

    If you know exactly which company you want to get into, take advantage of the experience of our American colleagues and make a resume in their style. It will be spectacular and very very visual. Well, you’re not going to send a resume in the style of Google to Yandex? Although ...

    So Gary wanted to get into Google and ... we don’t know how it ended there, but it turned out pretty well

    // Show your code The

    ideal developer resume is, of course, a website. Yes, we are not going to open America to anyone here, but let us remind you again: the site should contain as much useful information as possible about you. Resume, portfolio, interests. The structure, design and even the code of the site should reflect you as fully as possible.

    // A few examples:

    A neat monochrome site of a Canadian front-end vendor (he holds a page there with his hands and even blinks):

    A simple landing page from an ordinary Russian guy (for some reason, New York background):

    Glorious button accordion. Well, just the most colorful, interesting and exciting summary of ever:

    Here is a superhero landing page from a Dutch web developer:

    Perhaps the last landing page (a bit too many of them) came from a British front-end vendor who works hard to make the Internet cool:

    And, finally, the coolest The resume site is here. A site that writes code that teaches you how to write code. And don't even argue, it's just gorgeous:

    // A bit of humor

    Don't be afraid to laugh at yourself. They say that a sense of humor is an indicator of intelligence. So make humor your weapon. For example, Eugene, a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, drew a website for himself in paint. It looks awesomely cool:
