Two things: learn the lingo in your field and use it on the headline of your profile. Your headline makes it quick and easy for a prospective employer / recruiter to understand who you are and what your interests are For example, your headline could read: UI/UX developer and UI/UX technical consultant. Or UI/UX developer and database design technical ...

You are overthinking this - it probably will not affect you very much. Even without a disability, most people bounce around a little right after graduation. You took advantage of your bad experience and know what red flags to look for. While there is automation, it's usually used to find stuff like top 10 schools or "SQL Server" experience. It's ...

Not neccessarily. For obvious reasons, people that graduated with you and just worked steady jobs for the first five years, will be considered to have 5 years more experience. So in a direct comparison with them, they might get the job every time or might get a better salary. However, the world is a big place and you are not competing with them. You will ...

Since it looks like you are getting jobs from and working with this network of people, ask them about it. See if the higher-ranking one at the original company can help.

Obviously, it's not about a month having given you that much meaningful experience, so I'd go by some of my other criteria: Is it important to you? Does the nature of the project say something about who you are? Then include it. Is it something you'd really like to discuss with prospect employers? Then include it. Does its inclusion make your resume longer ...

You were employed by the university. The fact that the work you performed was for another company that contracted with the university for this work is immaterial.

You need to list your actual employer, the university. If someone wants to do a background check based on your resume, they'd need to contact the university to confirm your dates of employment. If they contact the industry company, they'll say they have no record of ever employing you since, well, they didn't employ you. You're in basically the same ...

Working Paper sounds like it's for an unfinished project Discussion Paper doesn't sound very impressive, it's just some points for people to discuss in a meeting Unspecified is just unspecified! So that leaves Technical Report sounds better of you're going to work in some technical field Project Report at least sounds like you've finished a project. So ...

This is an unusual situation. It's quite rare to have a Ph.D. and nothing else. Sometimes that happens with extremely talented kids who skip a lot of schooling and get their Ph.D. early in life or come from countries where schooling is difficult or disorganized. See for example https://academia.stackexchange.com/questions/17841/phd-without-previous-academic-...

Dont know how you can get a PhD without a bachelors and masters, but it is what it is I guess. Usually I would recommend putting in any time you spent being educated, even if you dropped out. Usually it shows that you spent time with that topic and might be more educated than other people. It certainly did help me land jobs that required a bachelors degree, ...

You will need to put down the dates you attended, and leave out the degrees/diploma conferred, since you don't have them. You should probably address this in a cover letter because it will be odd.

I once sat at a lunch table at a software conference with a guy everyone at the conference knew because he was a featured speaker from one of the conference sponsors, and another regular conference attendee from a well-known company similar to 7/11 that you don't think of as a "software company." What was surprising and memorable about that lunch ...

There's really 3 cases here. 1)A top company in the field. For tech, this would be FAANG, Microsoft, etc. Possible a few of the higher flying unicorns like Uber. These add values to resumes. And to anyone who's saying they don't- I can compare my salary with 3 FAANG companies on my resume to my coworkers who are just as skilled and without it. The ...

This sentence tells me something else is going on: It's been close to a year that I've failed to secure a job (rejection letters and silence). Let's put that aside for a moment and look at your question. As with anything else, ask yourself, "What is true for me TODAY?" If you have not made a concrete commitment (i.e., money paid + dates set + ...

Not necessarily, it depends how you present your work there It doesn't really matter if your employer was just a "mediocre company" as long as the work you did there was meaningful, and the skills you acquired valuable. Don't focus too much on the name of the brand, rather focus on the output you achieved for them and how it improved you as a ...
