Part 2 Getting your next c# asp.net job : The Developers Job Application Lifecycle

This is the second part of a series of posts I am writing on “Getting your next c# asp.net job ”

So to me the job application process is more than just the interview. There is actually lots of parts to the process and in this series I will explore each part individually. I see the developers job application lifecycle as including the following:

  • Deciding to get a new job
  • Finding the job
  • Create the resume ( I will include a sample .NET resume here)
  • Sending in a resume
  • Sending in a response to selection criteria
  • Preparing for an interview
  • The interview
  • After the interview
  • Maintenance

Good sample developer resumes on the Net

Bit of research (googling) led me to these links on developers resumes/cv:

I like this one except for the money stuff at the bottom

http://www.developerresume.org/

Another good one imho – nice and short

Excellent tips for writing once

Another sample I like – yeah its old school – yeah its not got any major formatting – but it hits the spot for me

Hanselman on Resumes

Ok I do occaisionally blog about being the better developer, getting a better job etc…┬ábut one area that I rarely talk about is developers resumes – or for that matter developer selection criterias. Having read a million of both I think I have a good idea of what makes a good one but of course thats quite subjective but when I saw the master hanselman was blogging about it I thought it would be good to extend this to the world:

I’ll try to blog on this subject if I can get some feedback from my dev mates – of course anyone out there who has thoughts on what makes a good dev Resume/CV – leave a comment and I’ll include it (or the spirit of the comment) in my blog on the subject.
