Over the last several years, I’ve had a chance to read a few Programming Resumes. Or, I should say, TRY to read a few resumes. But frankly, if the Programming Resume I typically see is common, everyone who reads my blog needs this advice. I haven’t seen a barely adequate resume in years. And I’m sick of it. Oh, it’s good for me of course. I know my resume is going to stand out as such a unique work of art compared to the others, that I will get a call back right away. After all, if the competition is so incredibly weak, I don’t even need to try.
On the other hand, as someone who has to read these resumes, I’d like to have something better.
And no, I’m not going to go over the standard “how to make your resume awesome” stuff because evidently most programmers can’t even get the basics down. Seriously!
