@BlackPanther Yep, sounds good! It's good idea to run through it with someone in person, get a friend or someone to ask you about those techs, and try to explain to them. Bonus points if they are not techy at all and you manage to explain it to them (it's an important skill to have in this field). Oh and don't worry about the spam too much, but yea, every ping in chat creates notification, it's a pain like that.

Good morning. I hope everyone has a great week!

@BlackPanther IMO, if you're going to write an introduction at the top of a CV, it should be short (1 maybe 2 lines), and it should be designed along the lines of "What overarching narrative should a recruiter have in their head while reading this CV?"
Anything more substantial should go in a Cover Letter

@TymoteuszPaul Thanks a lot. What I wrote about the two things I'm most passionate about would be great for an interview. I'm still trying to compress them into an introduction at the top of my CV.

@jserv Hi jserv!

Q: Are endorsements for skills on LinkedIn something that HR people look at?

user3552926I am a senior at a University and soon I will be looking for a full time job as Software Engineer (hopefully). I was wondering - how critical are endorsements on LinkedIn? It seems that one's profile is becoming increasingly important - I get asked about my LinkedIn profile on many websites wh...

The short answer is no. :)

@Kaz Thanks, point taken.

@BlackPanther Kaz has a point, though it really breaks down to who is the audience (and partially preference) and just how thick your cv is. I sure am no expert as I didn't read a cv while hiring people in a long while hah, at least not in the early stages of the process. And I want to reiterate that get someone to practice interviewing with, especially the passion bit.

@TymoteuszPaul Hah, I shoot faster than my shadow, no? :)
"And like that * poof * it's gone."
And it's back again. Took a lot of work and comments but I think it's up to shape now. My answer also feels way too long looking at it now but whatever. Complex topics often have complex answers.
Hah, and I still did not get the full story.
Oh well, live and learn. :)
 
@Lilienthal A lucky luke reference? Damn, didn't hear that in few... decades :D
 
@TymoteuszPaul Hey, 100% Belgian here for a reason. ;)
 
And that story just keeps on giving, but yea, I fully agree with your answer, just get on the phone with people, instead of waiting for moths.
Ha, fair @Lilienthal :D
 
It's perhaps unkind to the OP but I can see how there would be struggles in communication consider the rather crucial elements left out of the post even with this back and forth.
Advantage is that they're employed and presumably the company wants to keep it that way so it's just a matter of figuring out how together.

Personally I would've dropped that hot mess at around month two when you score any other offer because hot damn. But yea, what is most astounding in all that is that OP is still employed with them, or anyone else really.
