what ive noticed is that degrees and certifications really dont matter. all that matters is that you know how to code.
the best way to show a recruiter that you know how to code, since they themselves rarely know anything about actual code, is by having a clean looking website with a page linking to your projects. it doesn’t even have to be very fancy but they really dont give 2 cents about your GitHub repo or codepen.
so your site should be well organized and easy to navigate. choose a nice readable font and colors. use images that help you to communicate ideas.
all you need really is an intro, about me, portfolio and skills sections.
only put whats relevant. if you didnt go to school and you taught yourself then say that. if your website looks good then they will be even more impressed because youre obviously self motivated and can actually learn. talk about things that youve accomplished and what youre proud of, what youre working towards and what youre trying to work towards as a developer. and make it interesting
and probably the next more important thing about your resume site is your portfolio. you need links to atleast 1 or 2 projects that are mostly done and functional. i want to say atleast of your best works is ideal.
if youre focusing on front end then your design abilities need to be on display and reasonably polished/sophisticated (ie clearly better than a beginner)
