Ok, here’s my critique.
DISCLAIMER: I’m not a requiter, I don’t work in the industry, I started to learn programming a year ago, so I’m just an average Joe passing by.
I don’t know much about linkedin profiles (I created dummy one just to check yours) so I’ll focus on your portfolio.
You start with a bold claim ‘full service website and web app development’, but then your portfolio section shows only six very simple projects.
Your ‘about me’ is confusing:
1. It can’t be skimmed, you must read line by line - 'Ain’t nobody got time for that’
3. Finally, if someone familiar with JS will look at your code he won’t be impressed:
lastName values are missing quotes,
learnOpportunity === true should be written as
I understand that it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but I would stick to plain text as a default.
Then ‘contact me’.
Your linkedin profile says:
but none of your projects use jQuery or Bootstrap (ok, you use
getJSON(), but that’s it, and you linked Bootstrap in your twitch app, but never used, did you?).
If I’member correctly, you redid your projects using vanilla HTML/CSS/JS, but someone looking at your portfolio don’t know that.
Your twitter. You should at least follow people and channels involved in industry, e.g. @BrendanEich, @dan_abramov, @LeaVerou just to name few. Or just remove link to your twitter.
Your GitHub. Really? Your linkedin shows GitHub as one of your skills. You haven’t used it at all. Last activity mid September.
Conclusion. You claim that you are passionate Front End developer, but I can’t see passion, I can’t see front end development - you don’t follow anybody on twitter, you don’t post your projects on github, your youtoube channel is not related to programming (and last video was eight months ago). From your portfolio I can see that this forum is only place where you are somewhat active, but this is forum for beginners so…
Ok, you did a blogpost two weeks ago, but there should be at least one such post a week documenting your learning, your struggle with your side projects etc. Show passion.
I tried to be gentle . If I sounded harsh it’s because I’m not a native English speaker and sometimes my expressions lack eloquence.
P.S. Kudos to you for your YouTube channel, 37k is impressive for a language learning channel.
Maybe try this and blog about it, tweet about it, push to GitHub every day. Show passion:
