Will my CV get me an interview at a top tier tech company?
I wouldn’t interview you.
A couple of practical things:
- Your CV is very dense (hard to look at)
- Lots of long sentences (yuck to read)
- Lack of spacing (feels squashed)
- Inconsistent use of bullet points
- Too many divisions ‘Technical Experience/Additional/Languages’. Not really different ENOUGH
I count 8 pieces of ‘experience’. Far too many. I’d stick with your best three and delete the rest. Currently no way I can scan read your CV. You’re making it difficult for me, I can’t see the forest for the trees.
Apologies for being direct - but I hope some of this makes sense
To answer your questions:
- How big should the projects be, to be included in the projects section
Not longer than your work experience - to which it’s almost equal. 4 items in here - go for your favoured two!
- When I scan my CV and Job descriptions with Jobscan site, the most I get is 65%-70% match?
Don’t worry about it. It’s enough and when a resume is good a resume is good.
- Where should I include the soft skills?
Don’t include them. Subtly integrate them into data driven evidence in other parts of your CV. ‘Led a team of X’ demonstrates leadership. ‘Worked in a team of X’ demonstrated teamwork and communication. So on and so forth.
- Do I have to include every single skill and tech mentioned in the job description?
No. Balance my friend. Balance.
