  1. Review, update and refine your CV based on the insights and tips you gained from the panel discussion on Day 9 of :seedling:30 Days of Career Growth.
  2. Share your up-to-date CV by replying to this post on The Club forum and seek feedback from the community on your CV (Be sure to redact any personal info you’d like to keep private, e.g. contact details etc.) :outbox_tray:
  3. Offer feedback to someone else’s CV post. Engage in constructive discussions to help each other improve and stand out in the competitive job market. :speech_balloon::email:
  4. Implement the valuable feedback you receive into refining and enhancing your CV further.:sparkles:

NB: If you’re not in a position to share your CV right now, then taking part in step 3 will still bring value to you and the community :handshake:


Why complete this task?

  1. Implement learnings from Day 9: Building on the knowledge and tips you gained from the insightful panel discussion on “Creating CVs That Get Noticed” on Day 9, you can practically apply those strategies and learnings while sharing or reviewing CVs.

I need some time for this may be 2-3 days at least. So I can help if someone needs a suggestion for review as of now.

Am I the only one who kind of feels weird about sharing their resume online even if everything is anonymized? XD (it may be a me problem, if you really want to see it, then I can share it in private, fully anonymized)

I’m happy to review resume’s (even in private)! :slight_smile:

You’re most likely not the only one who wouldn’t be comfortable with this task but then there will be others who’ll see as a slight extension of their LinkedIn page. I imagine all tasks in this 30 Days could be uncomfortable for some, it’s a very personal subject. However, as with every 30 DoT, folks can dip in and out of them and contribute where they feel comfortable or where they feel there’s value for them. I am grateful for everyone who has contributed so far and have learnt so much. Thank you to you too for all your contributions :raised_hands:

Hi Simon,

Thank you for your time taking to do all this feedback by using a video recording. I aggree in both of your proposals about putting some enthusiam about testing and some achievements in each position of my work history.
I was suprised about your proposal about a community section in which i could put some people or other kind of resources regarding testing that i follow and help me to grow my skills in testing area. It is the first time i heard about this piece of info i may put into my cv but ok, i’ll take it into consideration.
Thank you again for your time and efford.
Georgios
