Programmers, if your resume isn't getting you job interviews, here's what you're doing wrong:

1. Limiting your scope

Don’t say “React Developer” ❌
Say “Frontend Developer” ✅

Your projects in React will prove understand frontend well and are capable of learning more frameworks.
2. Being very general in your experience/internships section.

Don’t say “Created apis for frontend” ❌

Say “Created express nodejs apis to fetch user data from Cosmos DB” ✅

It helps with keyword matching & also improves credibility of your statement
3. Focusing on certifications instead of projects

“Completed ‘Introduction to JAVA’ course on Udemy” has low/no value. ❌

“Built a JAVA springboot application…” has high value ✅
4. Not being relavent enough

Mentioning your Machine Learning projects for a frontend engineer position isn’t relavent.

Similarly expanding your “Digital Marketer” experience into 6 big points isn’t gonna help for a Software Engineer position.

Keep irrelevant experiences short
5. Telling long stories

Don’t write paragraphs explaining your position, projects or current situation. ❌

Your resume should contain facts and concise single sentence points explaining technical details of your projects and experience ✅

Save your stories for the interview
That's all for this thread. If you find this useful:

1. Retweet and leave a like on the first tweet - it encourages me to write more of similar content.

2. Follow me @ujjwalscript for more useful tips and threads 🙂

A THREAD ON @SarangSood

Decoded his way of analysis/logics for everyone to easily understand.

Have covered:
1. Analysis of volatility, how to foresee/signs.
2. Workbook
3. When to sell options
4. Diff category of days
5. How movement of option prices tell us what will happen

1. Keeps following volatility super closely.

Makes 7-8 different strategies to give him a sense of what's going on.

Whichever gives highest profit he trades in.


2. Theta falls when market moves.
Falls where market is headed towards not on our original position.


3. If you're an options seller then sell only when volatility is dropping, there is a high probability of you making the right trade and getting profit as a result

He believes in a market operator, if market mover sells volatility Sarang Sir joins him.


4. Theta decay vs Fall in vega

Sell when Vega is falling rather than for theta decay. You won't be trapped and higher probability of making profit.
