So What if i am new to software development (switching career from an engineering based profession to software development) and I am still scouting for a developer job, How will my resume look like? can I get a sample?

If you are making a career switch I would assume you are doing some sort of bootcamp or working on your own projects to learn coding. You will want to highlight those and put them at the top of your resume. Then add any previous jobs that were outside of development, but when you are listing what you did make sure to highlight soft skills that will also be relevant to working in development. Things like team work, leading, time management, stuff like that.

Hope that helps! Good luck with the switch!
