in myself

git diff pawelsawicz-cv

I am back! with brand new blog post! Too much time I have been waiting for releasing my new CV but now after few reviews done by mine friends I am ready to write about it, maybe it will help you 🙂

As you remember at the beginning of march 2013 I was looking for a job as .NET Developer, that was very enlightening time and had showed my weakness and fields to improve myself, CV was one of that thing.

  • Header

header_old

header_new

In this section I had made changes by resize big title of my name to smaller one, next step was to create a title of document and add date of releasing this document. Date of releasing of the document is very important because, it shows you how new, or updated document is.

  • Personal information

 personalinformation_old

personal_info_new

I had deleted some information from this section, like who cares where I live ? I am ready to re-locate anywhere! Birthday information is deleted too, because age don’t define my skills, probably it can define domains wisdom, especially, on how many fields I had worked.

What’s new ? github account. Like I said before I wanna expand my OSS activity, so I think it’s good idea to show my code blocks, furthermore within few months I became github junky

  • Work experience

workexperiance_old

work_experiance_new 

I rebuilt this section by changing  description listing, to sentence, that are formed up as infinitive. moreover current job position is updated.

  • Education

Without changes, still undergraduate – just 2 semester left and checkpoint! (I will get my BSc)

  • Skills

skills_old

skills_new 

Yeah, most rebuilt section at all, first of all I’ve deleted this weird gradation (basic, intermediate and expert) and have replaced with content that actually tells you on what technologies I am working at. Moreover I have added fundamental knowledge. To change this section I was forced by one of the interview, and actually they had right, because what tells you if someone has got C# at expert mode ? that he’s a f**ing awesome as Jon Skeet ?

  • Activities

 activities_old

activities_new

Few new activities that I have made, like dotNetConfPL. Furthermore have added projects for Imagine Cup.

  • Projects

project_new

New section for my commercial and non-commercial projects, as you know  lately I was involved in projects for conferences, at this year I will do more and better.

Conclusion:

My CV is available at : github.com/pawelsawicz/CurriculumVitae so everything is versioned and you can watch my progress 🙂 About things I learnt today, first of all, font on your CV should be a sans-serif, because generally people reads CV on computer, so this font looks better on screen. Second of all, your senescence should be in infinitive form. I want to thanks everyone who have reviewed my CV and gave me a feedback (especially @francmichal, and @JakubJedryszek).

  • Michał Śliwoń

    Good post, good idea for posting CV on github available to everyone. Probably will do the same.

      Thanks! Now I have to figure out how to migrate data form LaTeX to readme.md 😀

  • Marcin Biegała

    Maybe it would be better/easier to use github page instead of readme.md ?
