Portfolio Review/Resume Review

Hello everyone!

I need some feedback on my portfolio and my resume. I haven’t been getting any callbacks from jobs and have been applying since the summer.

Any constructive feedback is fine. Be as Ruthless as you want, I can take it :smiley:

Thank you guys again!

Just looking at the resume for now:

  • Needs a LinkedIn profile link.
  • Your website and GitHub links should be clickable.
  • Your sections are in the wrong order. I’d recommend: Skills, Projects, Experience, Education.
  • Any work you’re currently doing should be written in the present tense, and not past tense.
  • You’re repeating your technical skills too much across different sections.
  • You need to “high-level” all of your written text. It’s bogged too much in technical details, and you’re not writing anything unique or impressive. Focus on writing down achievements and business problems solved. Literally writing down exactly what you’re doing is not going to convince anyone to hire you.
  • You don’t need to “date” your projects, and they should all have clickable links provided to deployed versions.

HI @ClaudioBardales !

Here are my thoughts. :grinning:

For me, whenever the portfolio site loads, it first shows the raw html then the finished site.
I would look into that and fix that.

For the cleaning website, you said you made it for a small business but when I visit the site, it just shows a lot of lorem ipsum.
That kind of confused me.
I wasn’t sure if this was a practice project or a job for a client.

For the pets website, I would build out the cart functionality.
Right now it is just coming off as a design project but I think adding in some functionality will make it stronger.
I would also include the add to cart functionality too.

Hope that helps!

I have been trying to fix that for a while now. I can’t find anything on it. I know that I initially had trouble deploying my portfolio with netlify since I am using gatsby at the time.

The client didn’t add any images to their website yet, but I will add better placeholders and actual text other than lorem ipsum and circles :rofl:

This project was initially was a take home project for an open position at my previous job, I was thinking about adding a cart on there as well. I will add on there to make it stronger. Thank you for the feedback!

Thank you for your feedback!

I will get on it and edit my resume and do a re post to see if it’s good or not if that’s okay with you?

Your resume is OK. Sure it could do with some formatting improvements/slight changes but I didn’t see any glaring flaws.

I’m surprised you haven’t gotten any call backs, how many jobs have you applied to so far?

Sure, that’d be fine.

I applied to a bunch of jobs at indeed, but I used the quick apply feature. I heard that was bad is that true?

Applying online is a long process since companies get hundreds of applicants. If you have applied for a hundred positions and are not getting any responses, either the positions are not entry level or your resume isn’t cutting it.

This may sound strange but I would remove the projects section since I don’t think recruiters are going to spend the time looking at them at all. When you consider the number of applicants, recruiters/hiring managers don’t have time to go through hundreds of portfolios. It’s something that can be brought up during interview phase.

Put your education higher since that’s the main highlight and shouldn’t be in the bottom. Put more info detailing the stuff you did there.
