Resources to make a resume that sells your awesome!

Top 5 tips

  1. Don't have typos or lies. Do get someone to proofread it for you, who can also give honest feedback.
  2. Do talk about how you delivered (or how you helped). Talk about how you worked in using your skills. If things didn't go well, what did you learn?
  3. Unless this resume is for you as a person, which is part of your brand, choose a template that does not include a photo.
  4. Link skills to the experience in an easy to read way. Bonus points if you link to evidence, like a live site or GitHub repo.
  5. Choose the right format for your career stage - qualification based resumes are great for grads, chronological is more standard once you have relevant experience.
