I’m a few years (6) into my career now and I’ve learned a lot. When I go looking at potential new jobs, I read the description and think “yeah I can do all of that no problem.” Then comes the resume review and interview and I go through the same process each time, describing the same things on my resume and website, hitting all the job description bullet points. But this doesn’t seem to work very well.
My question is: what are some of your experiences proving to employers that you are ready for an upward career move? For example, going from software developer to senior developer or architect.
: I’m thinking a portfolio with executive summaries of projects (like artists and photographers have) would be more effective than a resume. I swear every interview I’ve had, it’s like the interviewer didn’t even read my resume.
