How to write a great Python developer resume
When someone is going to spend as little as a few seconds judging your resume, you can’t afford to send across a cluttered, vague and irrelevant resume.
You saw that one page resume trending on Hackernews, and decided to build one for yourself.
Just to be sure, you uploaded your resume to Reddit, looking for advice.
The two worded feedback from an anonymous Redditor said simply that your “resume sucks”.
Did you find that helpful at all?
Because, the viral HackerNews resume was made for a specific context, specific experience, and a specific job.
In reality, Entry level Python resumes have everything from C++ to Node.js listed in them. Making a recruiter feel that the resume is irrelevant.
On the other hand, most senior Python dev’s resumes still contain the same old junior python dev content they wrote ten years ago.
What that tells you is that your resume should have a proper layout and should be the right fit for your experience and the job needs.
2 Formats for a Python Developer Resume:
The reverse chronological layout is best for most of the job applications. Especially when you have some form of work experience to show as a Python developer - even if it’s a small internship.
When it comes to a Functional layout, we would suggest caution. Getting a functional resume layout right takes a lot more creativity and is risk prone.
But, a format alone isn’t going to get you the job.
