How to make a nice Web Dev Resume?

<%= @topic_view.topic.title %>
<%= @topic_view.topic.average_rating %> <%= @topic_view.topic.posts.count { |p| !!p.custom_fields['rating'] } %>

That’s good man!

I have a portfolio page, it’s this one: https://lucasemg.github.io/porfolio/

I tried to do exactly as you told! So, whenever I send my resume, I should send the link to the portfolio and also have it highlighted in my resume, right?

Great insights man! I’m working on the resume and I’ll make sure to have the porfolio link there!

And of course, I’ll keep studying and improving!

oh yes absolutely. youre website should be one of the first things they see so put it right up their with your contact information

also im not sure what type of position youre looking for specifically but it would help to have a more diverse set of designs or skills just to show youre not just a one trick pony

also knowing react or angular a HUGE benefit if not essential

Angular is already on my list of skills to learn! React too!

I don’t have MANY projects to show yet, so I will show the ones I have done and I will constantly update my portfolio

Most jobs, if they require one, only require one of these. They basically do the same thing. I would pick one and get good at it and then (once you’re good at it an all its supporting libraries) you can learn the other if you really want to. They’re good to learn, but it’s more important to learn one very well. FCC teaches React, but Angular has its strengths - you’ll just have to go somewhere else for them.

Which one will you personally recommend? And are there any recommendations of where to study React?

I like React, but there are plenty of people that love Angular. It’s kind of like Coke and Pepsi. And Vue would RC Cola.

Like I said, Free Code Camp teaches React as part of its program.

i like react because you have to build all your components from scratch and its all javascript but a lot of people dont like that.

angular also works on slightly different principles and have different capabilities but im not super sure about those. id say switch between them at first and then just stick to one that you like the most

react is most popular at the moment but they will both probably be in demand and well supported for years to come

the react tutorial on fcc is kinda trash in my opinion and the tutorials on the website itself is the best way to learn react. use all learning sources you can though

Yes, the FCC React section is not meant to be comprehensive. You can use it as a framework and supplement it when you need to fill in some wholes. FCC would have to grow at least 10x to be comprehensive on everything it teaches. Supplimenting where needed is always encouraged.

Consider looking at the front-end developer job postings you would apply for and see what kind of experience they are requesting.

Most or all require
HTML
CSS
JS + Framework (React/Angular/Vue/Meteor)

For the jobs around my area, React definitely seemed the most popular so that is the direction I took.

I like the color choices. They’re fun, but not distracting.

I do think you should proof-read this website though. Portfolio is misspelled in the website title (and the URL). Career is misspelled in the bio, and nested parentheses aren’t usually a good idea. Also, “change my carreer from former Logistics Coordinator at IBM , to Property Administrator at Colliers International”, is kind of weird, since changing your career already implies that the first one is former. I’m not sure you need that comma either. I think fixing these small issues will just make it look more professional.

Good luck with your job search!

RC Cola !!? That is the Analogy of the year thus far lol. Amazing!!

@lucas.emg I have worked on my resume and actually started sharing them to get feedback on Linkedin (Due to this I got connected with some experienced developers by accident which was great). I have a portfolio that still needs to be improved upon but I did post two templates I made with Microsoft word. Check out this site I run to download them.

As long as your content looks good you should be fine. Clean, professional, content trumps everything as it is the first impression (my opinion)! I wish us all the best in our efforts and success on this journey we are on. Carry on Comrades!! LOL

MAAAAAAN that’s a beautiful resume! I’ve done more graphically cool, but your is REALLY cool !! I will try to work on something like that!

Thank you so much for the corrections! I have worked so much in this page that I haven’t even noticed all those things! hahaha Thank you again!

Here is an article on this from FCC:

I use the template provided here and it got me many interviews, offers and so far two jobs…

‘thehalalhustle’ - alliteration of the year thus far :rofl:

I spot a small spelling mistake in the first resume…
The text in your ‘life philosophy’, i think you meant ‘breathe’

I like the layout and styling in your resume, you got some good front-end ui vision. I am trying to improve my ui/design skills myself.

Got any tips or great resources that helped you with ui/ux/design?

Eyyy thanks for the compliment. I am not the original designer tho lol (merely recreated it and changed a few things). I hope it helps you out!! Go get em!

LOL … I definitely made that spelling mistake! (cringe)… I have been corrected on it before and did not capture a new screenshot. Thank you for pointing that out though, much appreciated.

I hope to improve on my own UI/design skills as well. I have honestly just been breaking down and trying to recreate nice pens on CodePen to learn more and improve my own design process. I am a do first kinda person.

My tip: Start really simple and keep adding on effects or features layer by layer. That is my approach at least. (‘Basic to Bad*$$’ - I really hope it works lol)

You can see my current and future tutorials on my YouTube Channel (shameless plug) where I go through my process. A) to solidify my thought process and confidence in a concept. B) to share the steps for others to benefit.

Hey, here is my resume http://aymericbarbin.fr/ with the code of it (laravel+vue.js) being here
