A resume is your personal marketing tool, whether you are applying for an internship, job, or graduate school. Its purpose is to promote your unique combination of education, experiences, skills, qualifications, and activities, grab the reader’s attention and generate an interview.
How to best format a Software developer resume?
Trying to make your resume ATS readable, HR readable, and technical hiring manager readable is not an easy task. In short, try to quantify your achievements without getting too in the weeds (while also not being too broad). The most important formatting tip that you should internalize is that your resume should be one page. Recruiters spend on average 6 seconds reviewing your resume, so there's no use trying to make a big impression by making your resume as long as possible.
Tips on how to properly format your Software Development Resume:
- Don't make your resume too long. One page is best.
- Make it readable by avoiding long paragraphs of text.
- Bullet points should be self-contained, complete ideas.
- Keep your tenses consistent. Refer to old roles and projects in the past and refer to your current role in the present.
- Avoid pronouns like “I” or “we”.
- Please, I beg you, check for grammar and spelling errors. Don’t let this be the reason you don’t get the job!
