Hi Shubham,

Your resume looks great. Just a few minor suggestions from my end -

  1. Move work experience above skills
  2. USE NUMBERS and KEYWORDS to make your resume catchy
  3. Make font size of links small (+ italic would be good)

Check your resume score on some awesome online resume checker websites to improve it.( I prefer resumeworded.com)

For reference - pankajtanwar.in/v0.0.1/resume

Thanks Pankaj for suggestions, I had made links small and italic, skills I had mentioned will work as keywords I guess, what other keywords are you talking about?

For example inside your work experience use keywords like led a team of 2 for building a new UI or improved page loading performance by 45%

To work in an organisation as Front-End Developer I have more than 1-year experience working in a product-
based startup, where I had also worked 9 months work from home, communicating with other team members to get features deployed from concept, used React Js as main UI library, open to learning new library/tools.

This is all a little awkward in terms of phrasing. The opening sentence's phrases are reversed from normal making it sound a little like poetry! I'd also steer clear of mixing in abbreviations with regular formal writing.

How about reworking it something like this:

I am an experienced front-end developer, specialising in React, who is used to working as part of a remote team.

It doesn't have to be long. You can add something about being "enthusiastic about learning new technologies" if you want but to be honest, most recruiters take that for granted and see it as small talk.

Thanks for suggestion, I'll make changes you suggested, my first language is not English so have problems in explaining things in short! Thanks anyway
