Hi there, would someone be able to review my resume and portfolio? I’ve been applying for jobs for a couple weeks and haven’t gotten anything yet. I did expect that though. This the first time I’ve needed a resume for a job though, so I’m confident with it.
Further, I’ve been applying for remote jobs in the UK, because I’m from Canada and need work I can do starting very early in the morning. I’ve put this in the little cover letter you right on Indeed, but I’m not sure what the best approach is. I’ve heard HR people don’t like unusual applications, so that not good. The only feedback I’ve gotten so far was to double down on React and build more complex projects–I believe the fellow said to talk to the company again that point, other than that I’ve gotten some rejections.
Yeah, I think I really have to get onto building some better projects. My plan going forward is to build some MERN stack stuff, and then, if I still haven’t gotten anywhere, look into C#. I’ve seen a lot C# jobs, and I don’t think its nearly as popular for learners as JS.
Resume-wise, I would delete the “laid off” part from your work exp (can address that later if needed). Also I don’t think the “other” section adds anything. I’d also suggest reverse chronological order (most recent first) and some description of what you did (that could be relevant such as managing multiple tasks/projects, working with people, etc). And since all your work is not relevant to the field you’re applying for, maybe put the portfolio or certificates higher?
