Top 5 Resume Mistakes by Developers
Using No/Too Little Keywords
Maximize the usage of keywords appropriate to the specific job profile. Sprinkle the keywords throughout your resume to grab attention.
Using Phrases like 'Responsible for Developing' 'Did Develop'
Try using phrases containing action verbs like:
1 Developed front-end tech stack
2. Served over 400 clients a year
Giving Vague Project Details
Clearly mention the key details of your project. ‘Developed a Weather Predicting App using Machine Learning’ will not help. What was your tech stack? Which algorithm did you use?
Highlighting Things that you Did
Instead of highlighting what you did, highlight what you achieved! List your achievements!
Not Highlighting Tech Skills
Add a technical skill section in your resume, to highlight your technical prowess that make you a perfect fit for the role you're applying for.
