Once you recognize the valuable role the resume plays in your fintech career, it helps to see what our guidance looks like in action!
“Show them [employers] the best of what matters to them, not just what you think is your best work overall! Is it a front end developer role? Show them your best front end projects – with links to the live site and to the GitHub repository as well. Is it a full-stack role? Swap those projects in your resume to your best full stack applications! Is it a role focused more on the back end? Share your best back end work in your projects section!”
