Node JS Resume Points How To Write Node.js Developer Resume (+ Real Word Template)

  • Treat your resume as a landing page - optimize it for conversion (that is basically an interview invitation)
  • Keep it just one sheet long (two pages max)
  • Don’t use photos, never
  • Layout mattes - choose more readable, good looking one with better font, if you need one look at the example below
  • Polish your tech skills cloud and aligned it with job description - without it you will be rejected by any recruiting automation system on a filtering step
  • Add WOW effects to your experience, namely stress out how did you improve the business of a company using your tech skills
  • Stop DOing, start ACHIEVing in your experience
  • A/B Test your resume all the time, send it to recruiters and check what version has better conversion rate (calls back)

Most of these guidelines have to be taken with a grain of salt and would be red flags in some countries.
To anyone reading this who's not based in Australia/United States; please, please, please make sure you tailor your CV to the culture of the country you're in.
I can't stress this enough; I know in the US you have to look very proud of your achievements, competitive and direct, but here in the UK (and in Europe in general) that can be seen as overly aggressive, narcissistic and egocentric.
My team and I have rejected candidates purely based on this, even if their coding skills were outstanding.

That makes complete sense! Writing document without considering your audience can cause a huge problem.

I don't want to be rude but I see a lot of inconsistency in this type of resume. I find a few point surprising, that would in my opinion do more harm than good during a job interview.

For instance, I would expect any descent Node JS developer to be able to pick up any NPM library such as Handlebars or even use a REST api, mentioning it as a skill seem odd. Seeing WebGL alongside XHTML and XML is hilarious to me, WebGL, and by extension OpenGL, is a complete different beast, I would expect someone that list it as a skill to also be familiar with GLSL, 3D math and the whole rendering pipeline, please do yourself a favor and never list XML/HTML next to WebGL as common skills set unless you know what it imply.

Database 'CRUD', is more confusing than anything as it doesn't even stand for any particular tech. Node 0.8 to 10.1... why even bother listing the version if you already know ES6? And listing Bitbucket as a skill is also confusing, I would expect at least to see the word 'git' somewhere... not a hosting service.

What scare me about these type of resume is that its just a bunch of technology name to look fancy and cool, but when it come down to it, no one really care if you happened to stubble upon one of these tech. It's basically beating around the bushes when really the most important thing is not to highlight what tech you used, but rather how quickly you can learn and adapt.
