I graduated last year and I am currently working as a software developer, but in the past year I have hardly done any development work in this job and worked more towards documentation and unit testing the software. Owing to this I have decided to switch, and now as I work on my resume I realize that I don't have much development work to write on my resume.
My questions are:
- Is it ok for a not-so-recent grad to focus his resume on academic work,(and online courses like edX etc.) than on the current job role?
- When answering the interview question 'Why do you want to switch?', is it alright to mention the real reason or does that reflect badly as someone speaking negatively of my their current job?
I appreciate all your opinions.
