I was laid off from my position as a Java/Scala backend developer last October (40% company wide lay-off) and, aside from a referral to Lyft, have completely failed to get past the résumé screener. Do any of you have suggestions on how to be noticed when applying? Are there common pitfalls? Would anyone be willing to look at my résumé and tell me what might be wrong with it?
Some facts about me:
I’m kinda at the end of my rope here. We’re about to be pushed out by my landlord because we’re no longer eligible for the apartment after I lost my job and my money is about to run out. Help a friend out 🙏🏻.
 Made it to the on-site and then a follow up on-site (that’s right, TWO on-sites) but ultimately it was a no from them.
