For the most of the part, I like your portfolio. A few things…
- Some of the images took a while to load. Make sure they are optimized for the size you are rendering.
- PLEASE DON’T WRITE IN ALL CAPS. THEY ARE HARDER TO READ FOR SOME PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF US THAT WERE TAUGHT TO READ WORDS BY SHAPE ON A TACHISTOSCOPE.
- Your projects to have links to the source code, not just the live app.
- I would want to see a list of the techs you know. This is very important. I might also include them in the descriptions of the various apps. I think this is more important than telling them what the app does.
- I don’t remember seeing anything that needs a backend. I know you are calling yourself a frontend guy, but still, a lot of times they like to see a little backend knowledge so they know you understand the full cycle.
For the resume, I agree with others that it isn’t scannable enough. My philosophy is that you have 5 seconds or their attention before they move on to the other 147 resumes they have to review before lunch. “scannable” is a good goal.
There is a lot of information in there that they don’t care about. Every job that does not relate to computers or web dev should be just a single line. There is no need for this resume to be more than one page. Keep things compact and focussed. I should be able to look at it for 5 seconds and know what you are looking for and what your language/library stack is.
To me, this is misleading:
Analytical Web Developer with 6+ years of experience in issue identification
Is your “6+ years of experience in issue identification and resolution” related to “Analytical Web Developer”? Your placement of those two in the same sentence makes me think they are. This paragraph should be just about who you are as a coder and what you are looking for.
I think this is a little misleading:
Strong background in web development…
This is in your “Professional Profile”. Are you saying that you have professional web development experience?
I think this should be a lot simpler, a few sentences about who you are and what kind of job you want. This is the first thing they read. They will see a lot of overly ornate language that is vague and once they look at your work experience, they may conclude that you are deliberately misleading them.
Since you have no work experience and not much education, the Objective (what you call Professional Profile) and Skills are the most important things. I think listing some of your favorite projects would be good too.
To me, “Web Developer Program Participant” sounds weak. Leave off the last word. Phrases like “Boosted acquired knowledge” sound goofy to me, like you’re trying to puff it up. They can see right through that. Keep it simple. You could cut this description in half, very easily.
Get rid of what you are calling “Skills” and convert “Technical Skills” to “Skills”. Almost everything you have under “skills” is either vague or irrelevant. They don’t care that you say you have “conflict resolution” skills. If you want to include some of those in your cover letter, that might be OK, but on a resume it is just stealing away valuable attention and makes it seem like you’re not really sure what the most important aspects of your qualifications are.
Just some thoughts…
