Finally, I am getting out of my comfort zone to start working on a few projects I always had in mind. 😅
From September - December 2020, I was applying for my first Software Engineering job. It took me a little bit over 400 applications to get it. 😔 Something I noticed: Most companies require you to "upload your Resume", but still require you to fill out all the forms.
This was a pain, a personal pain. In a world where A.I, Machine Learning, and all the other futuristic topics are trending, how in the world do I need to type my information over and over. But, life happened and I let it go.
On June 6th, 2021, I saw a post on Reddit with 1.7k upvotes. The complaining was exactly my pain a few months back: why companies ask for your resume and then have you type all the information again! 🤯
I decided to take action! It took me 3 days to finish a simple version where you can type once, and then, just drag 'n drop everywhere. A browser extension for Chrome and Firefox (It also works with Brave).
Now the goal is to make sure it is useful! Looking for all feedback possible! 👍🏻
You can use plain and simple HTML, CSS, and JS (As well as other frontend frameworks).
You can make API calls.
5$/one-time fee to create a dev account on the Chrome Webstore and it is free for Firefox.
You can build for Chrome and maybe you just need a few twists to make it work for Firefox.
The Getting Started from Google is pretty good!
It also works for Chromium-based browsers (So, building for Chrome will also make it work in Brave, for example)
