re: What should a developer CV / resume look like? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hello Adam

The most important thing you need to know about CV is that they should matter much less than you think.

When you are a random guy sending a CV to a random company, your odds of success are a bit like sending a love letter to that girl or guy you like but have you never talked with first.

Here is how I do it nowdays:

  • I never send my CV pro-actively
  • I focus on making a connection and discussing with the people first
  • Inviting them to drink a coffee is my favorite way to do it
  • Only after I've met them and they explicitly ask for my CV, I send it
  • At that point I'm not a random stranger sending a letter to a random company, so how my CV looks doesn't matter much.
