Employment History

Why start an internship or freelance project?

Previous experience makes everything, you need to be able to add some to your resume to look better, and this is an example of what your freelance job could look like:

1Title: 2Freelance Web Developer at MyCompany Media 3 4Description: 5Responsible for designing, coding, and modifying React applications and Python APIs from layout/mockups/wireframes to functional and according to a client's specifications. Strive to create visually appealing sites that feature user-friendly design and clear navigation.

☝️ DO NOT COPY AND PASTE, please customize it, use different words, different technologies, and programming languages that you like, you can talk about eCommerce apps, and edTech, and you can mention particular industries that you like.

If your final project was a game, you can say you are specialized in building games with HTML/CSS/Javascript/Python. If it was a social network then you are specialized in building "social apps", etc. If it was a tutoring site, you can say you are focused on edTech.




Enhance previous projects:

Enhanced versions of some of the projects you built at the academy, for example:

Star Wars Reading List: You can make this a social reading club, everyone has a password and shares their favorite.

  • Contact List: Make the contact list a CRM, basically you add a "status" to each contact, and then the salespeople can change the contact status based on the sale process.
  • Todo List: Todos don't need to have just two statuses: Done or Not done, you can make them have several like Not doing, Doing, Done, Approved, Rejected, etc. That will make your to-do list a project management tool with stages.

Each of your projects must have:

  • Live link
  • Readme description with screenshots.
  • Organized code.

☝️ Quality is more important than quantity, just two or three projects are enough if they are really good.
