How to write a good resume (for developers)

Here’s a nice and short tip sheet which lists common pitfalls when writing a resume. It was written by an employee at Google and is based on his experiences in reviewing hundreds of CVs (and by all accounts they get loads of job applications! check this.. damn! 😦 )

Main points:

  1. Explain technical details of past work
  2. Leave out irrelevant details – these dilute the good stuff!
  3. Don’t make general, self-promoting statements that are based on subjective assessment
  4. If you’ve done good stuff, mention it!
  5. Be honest 🙂
