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


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.
