I write mine in markdown. It's some mix between a resume and a cover letter. As someone who has to read a bunch of BS resumes for hiring I recommend doing it this way. Even though it's the standard, itemizing everything is really fucking boring and too easy to skim over.

>>82623720
Your skills list is quite long considering that you have a summary section, and it also looks a bit like you're trying to hide away your education. You could probably bake that into the summary if you don't want that section at all. Also, I assume that the top section on the right (the one that is blurred out) is your contact info. I would move that up to the blue-ish row, like have your name on the left and then the contact info box on the right, kinda similar to what >>82623020 and >>82623012 do

it's gonna be hard to get a dev position without a degree desu
if you want to try, list your most impressive projects the same way we list our experience
make a skill tree to take up a big portion of the page
then put your high school under education, with the GPA if it's above 3.5
don't put the date on high school so they don't know your age
you might be able to swing a junior ruby dev job if those even exist anymore
>>
>>82627416

I'd recommend making another similar resume without the projects that pitches you as a general computer guy
then you send that out to help desk and IT positions
you'll be more likely to get that
some certs would help as well

Remove summary, highlight work history and make it single paged. Correct me if I'm wrong but you only have three full time positions: if it doesn't total up to 10 or more then you should have it be one page. Especially since skills take up so much space as well.
>>82623916
You need to check out how resume templates and see how they structure it. This isn't it: you need to talk about your work, your personal skills/knowledge should just be work and should be highlighted (did C++ on a job? then put it in skills). >>82624026
>>82624029
Check out picrel. HR is gonna read that format. This won't cut it: plus to >>82624029 in particular you need bulletpoint your experience and grammar check (I Do)
>>82627096
I feel you can better formatted this resume. Also tech experience shouldn't include shit like Ipad or OneDrive: technical shit HR stacies wouldn't know about. Also

I'd kill for that ratio. There's a reason people preach repeatedly about networking early on in your career. Sending out resumes hoping to hear back is exhausting and crushing.

Honestly you're an exception. I don't know if you even are real but if you are then you can break the rules. You can put paragraphs, you have the example projects with a studio, and overall I like it. It's pretty great as well, although I would remove hobbies cause nigga nobody cares about it. One thing I wanna mention is SleepyCabin: what the fuck does it do? You're CEO so just a summary would be good to know.

Come on! I'm sure you have some skills to put in there. Even if it's personal ones. The day you get an actual job you'll replace it with actual experience and skills.

Remove all that stuff.
And you could do better with a nicer format. Find some ideas in this very thread.

>>82627096
Technical experience could use a rework. A table is a weird format for that. Sure you could use "Windows Desktop" instead of "Windows 7, 8, 10", "iOS devices" instead of "Iphone, Ipad", "Microsoft Office" instead of "Word", "Excel", "PowerPoint". And then it will probably fit in a nicer bullet point list.

are you spaghetti dropping fuckers so incompetent at being a psychopath you can't even lie consistently?? can't plan your conversations ahead of time?? bro. it's a technical interview. that shit gets scheduled like a week or two in advance, you should be prepared. and by be prepared i mean have developed a couple flowcharts of conversation for the interview, list of prompts and topic steering devices. ways to get the interviewer talking about things they like instead of questioning you on your tower of lies. if you're lying about work history then invent it. use your imagination dude and come up with coworker names and roles, managers, projects worked on and what your roles and tasks were, your team structure and size. prepare responses to those idiotic situational questions like "tell me about a time when you were faced with a tough problem and..." - those just take a google search to find the most common ones. you can hire on fiverr for people to do referrals if needed.

you still need to be technically competent. lying will not pass your technical interview.

Is there a reason why you have your education above experience?

Also, you could probably make the education section "Education & certifications" if you want more space for other stuff.

Otherwise pretty good, my only criticism is that you should do for the rest of the positions what you did for the 2014 internship; state what you did in that position and how that contributed to the company, instead of just listing technologies (you can put that under skills or make a new section called "technologies" or something).

I'm minority alright, but probably the worst minority to be since it's not even really a minority in the tech industry

My communication skills are probably average but that doesn't even really matter because I've been getting aired by companies and not getting any interview calls (but this is before I even had any tech work experience at all, I do now but I haven't applied much yet)

As for projects, what are these companies looking for? My projects are a few financial things like an AI to predict stocks and stuff, a task management website and a blockchain social media, FYI another thing I think might be fucking me is that since a lot of these things were submissions for projects/competitions that I can't upload online, they're not listed on my GitHub so my GitHub is largely empty

I think I'm getting filtered but I'm not sure why, it could be little to no work experience or too young or empty GitHub or bad location (companies might not want an intern to move across half the country just to work) or maybe even race

if you actually made those things, not having them on github/lab or somewhere where recruiters can check might be the cause. You make yourself look like a buzzword spouting retard that lies on their resume just so you can get a cozy cooding position. Even if that's what everyone else is after too.

Oh fuck I didn't see this. Well fuck, those gaps are long. You got to make up sick family excuse anon when it comes to interview. Besides that, I suggest getting a part time help desk/entry developer job: having some current position on resume looks a lot better then nothing. Alternatively, say you're still a freelance web developer, but business has been slow. Hell, have it between the gap years. They can't verify if you were or not, but if you can show the webapp you did made that'll look good. Another thing you could do is make websites for small business, and if there's no clients make the business up and say it's all electronic. Hiring managers aren't gonna check if the business is real, but saying you did a project for a business is a lot better then saying you just made a website project. Also describe what you did in the jobs more.

Yeah I thought of this, but since there was a free CCNA training paid by gov, I took the course thinking of instead of relying on my flimsy dev/programming experience, I thought maybe graduating from a course that's specifically provided by government would elevate my standing more. Now I completed it but still don't have the real CCNA cert yet because the gov wouldn't reimburse it.

I think it's a meme, otherwise it would be extremely cringe.
>>
>>82648642
It's definitely not a meme.

>>82648628
4/5 interviews nobody asks about the bars.
On the occasion they do, its usually really superficial questions.
I have the bars like that to allow me to state and organize some of my stronger tech skills without resorting to an unmanageable word soup.

>upload the binary
not a bad idea mate, thanks, but surely at that point they can't read the code I may as well just explain the project and give screenshots but upload nothing? That way I can stay safe with my university's rules as well

>>82648776
>university promoting closed source
at this point I would rethink that university choice

>>82648728

Or you could just not be an autist and put (listed in descending order) and use bullet points like a normal fucking human being.

It's because it's a competition and they recycle questions and don't want people cheating by looking at previous answers, also well I'm not a big fan of this university either but it's one of the best in UK for CS so you win some you lose some

What's stopping me from just asking/paying a previous winner to look at his answer?

Any UK-bros in here got any career advice?
I'm a CS university student without any work experience but lots of projects (some of which related to finance) who wants to specialise into working with finance (quant trading etc), how easy is it gonna be breaking into the industry and how should I go about it?

>>82648948
But that would look ugly

latex is a shit meme that is paddled by resident /g/ idiots.

if you're a scientist and you need to publish some work, sure, go ahead and stick your data into your institution's latex template so it can be uniform.

but only moron would take an advice to write cv in latex seriously, it's a troll on the scale of using gentoo for desktop.

Real talk: I'm a college dropout but I still like programming and free software.

Would making commits on GitHub for bugfixes and new features count as experience? Would a company hire me based on that?
>>
>>82653088
how old are you
>>
>>82653171
25.

would you guys include irrelevant jobs like volunteering at a soup kitchen or working fast food when applying for internships at a defense contractor?
>>
>>82653088
Maybe? As a student with no work experience, if I made a CV right now I’d probably do:

top left programming langs, etc. on the right side my education (education taking 30% of the width or smth)

Then below that my Independent Projects, which would link to a couple live sites I have. And if I were you I’d ofc mention the commits I made, my github, etc.

My real question is, where do I enter my race for extra points as a black african male.
>>
>>82619928
I applied for a job and someone posted my resume on /g/!! How do I go about taking legal action, I applied to like 50 companies should I email each of their HR?
>>
>>82653434
Drop the fast food, but keep the volunteering bit in there.
>>
>>82653482
holy based
now the cat's out the bag, you may as well tell us which one
