Hello there my fellow freeCodeCampers!
How it’s going for ya?
TL/DR: Please tell me what would you change from links(CV, Portfolio, LinkedIn) below.
But to get to the case… 2 weeks in job applying, one job a day, sometimes when i feel lazy i send just CV without cover letter to a senior position (yeah, just to fill my own quota…).
But the jobs i like i do try to write unique, personal message, and their are so, tho they are usually not very professional, but that’s probably one thing i gotta conform and just write out regular CL/message and see how it is going to go like that.
So, from like 15 applications i got just one answer (“we found someone”)
In my country (Serbia), there isn’t whole a lot of jobs that doesn’t require 5 years of space exploration, it seems like 75% positions are looking for senior/someone with 4-5+ years of experience. So, “shoot at everything and eventually you gonna hit something” probably not gonna work, since not that big country = not that many reasonable junorish jobs.
So, there i am “once again asking for your… um… experienced support”.
Should I just ditch my current portfolio and make new one, regular smooth scroll, no pages feel portfolio, i feel like it is better/easier for HR to just skim thru, and just yeah, better option?
There is my current PORTFOLIO: https://ilija03.tk/
And until new portfolio i am just going to ditch Home section, i mean home is going to be About screen, since there isn’t anything there, just waste of click.
And there is my CV: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16vjkVhoFuoXXgGUEeyIato5I1Wm5CpwL/view
Would you change anything there, should i make “more colorful” one? (not with percentages and stuff) but you know, just a bit less, hm boring? Do i need new CV and what would you suggest me?
My LINKEDIN: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ilija-savic-03/ … I recently started connecting with peeps, and did few updates there. Would you do anything else with? Expect my profile picture…
I am aware that, I need one bigger project, i am working on one (https://github.com/Archaeologist03/expressing-space-api), planning to go react-native with this API, but it will take some time, until then, do i have any good/solid chance of getting jobs with stuff i linked?
At the end… How should i go about all this? Should I maybe expand (tech wise) there are quite some PHP jobs, i watched freecodecamp PHP fundamentals and those fundamental building blocks seems very much so like JS, should i maybe dive into Laravel?
What would you, dear reader, do, in my situation?
