Roast my Engineering Intern Resume

Hey everyone. I am a second-year Mechanical Engineering Student in Canada. I am just about to finish my current internship before going back to school to complete my second year over the spring semester. I am gearing up to apply for Fall 2024 engineering co-op positions, mainly in the nuclear industry, but also for other industries too. So I'm just looking to fine-tune.

Getting No Calls- Please Critique My Resume

Hey guys! I've applied to almost 200 jobs this month for entry-level and junior roles in Marketing and Data Analysis, but I haven't gotten a single call back. I understand that I have a gap, and I'm trying to change careers from Marketing into data analytics and/or data engineering and/or software engineering, so I'm trying to fill that gap by showing that I'm doing bootcamps and projects. I'm not sure what else I should add, or change, to at least get a call back before getting rejected.

Any feedback is appreciated!

should i remove the degree i am currently pursuing from my education section?

so i haven’t been getting call backs at all and i have revamped my resume multiple times using this subreddit and have good experience. i haven’t gotten a single call back.

i was wondering should i delete my college information / the degree i am currently pursuing (not yet obtained) from my education section and only have my high school info?

i’m thinking maybe the places i am applying to (which are mainly minimum wage retail type jobs)— they are only skimming through my resume and think i have the degree and that i’m overqualified for some reason so they skip me? 😭

Roast My Resume: Getting passed over by ATS?

I'm not sure if its my format, my experience, or just my luck. I've applied to 250+ jobs with most of them being decent experience matches. Any help?

Roast my resume - 100 applications and 1 interview

Hello! I just graduated from an MSCS program, but I haven't had too much luck while applying for SDE roles. Before my master's degree I mostly worked as an automation and scripting engineer, except for one internship where I developed a web application using Django and React.

I've applied to about a 100 positions so far, mostly entry-level SDE roles, but the only way I could get an interview was through a strong referral from my manager at my previous workplace. Please provide feedback on my resume. Should I develop more full-stack web applications to show my interest in software development? I no longer want to work in test automation. Also, would it make sense for me to get a certificate, such as AWS Solutions Architect or AWS Developer Associate?

To make matters worse, I am on an F1 visa. I did not get past the one interview because the recruiter said they weren't hiring any F1 visa holders.

What do you do when you submit a resume with lots of grammar mistakes?

My ex bf wanted me to look over his resume, but he's really impulsive (ADHD) and sent it to the employer without me proofreading it. It was full of grammar mistakes including not capitalizing key words (including his own last name, cities, states, and job related abbreviations), not including commas in some places, not including punctuation in some places, misspelled his address, and accidently included an unnecessary word from the Google doc template. The formating also wasn't as consistent as it should be.

He also completely forgot to fill out info for one of the previous jobs he had, which was extremely relevant to the job he was applying for, so there's just a lot of carelessness going on here.

My ex really shines actually communicating and interacting with others, so I think if he gets an interview, he'd get hired. I'm concerned with all these mistakes, though he may not even get an interview.

Would it look bad if he resubmitted the application with all the edits I made to the resume? If he gets an interview, maybe he should give them an updated resume?

How does he redeem himself after this?

My ex is a roofer and is applying to be a roofer at another company. He's thinking that since it's a construction job that they won't care about his resume being somewhat sloppy. For his sake, I hope he's right because this job could pay him $40+ an hour.

I don't want to post a copy of the resume as it's not mine to share.

Any advice I can share with him would be appreciated. Thanks.

Tl:Dr

Ex submitted his resume with grammar mistakes and missing some key information about a previous job. How does he redeem himself? Resubmit his resume with edits made?

Skills on resume really relevant?

20+ years in IT security, does the “skills” section really make sense? It just seems to be like a filler section.

Camdidates are expected to maintain professionalism with the hiring team but is it reciprocated?

I know the hiring team is ever so busy getting 1000 CVs and mails blah blah! But if a candidate has sent a followup, it is basic decency to reply!! The candidates are nt just 2 pages of the CV they receive.

How do I put different positions in different dates from the same organization together?

Hey I was wondering how to put different roles in different years from the same organization into my resume. Like for example I helped clean up parks from 2020-2021 and now I’d like to tutor 2024-?. Would I make a separate list or just add that I tutored people into 2020-2021 section?

She said it's the reason no internships I applied to asked for an interview. I would appreciate some help on what I should do to improve it.

Roast My Resume - Not Getting Call Backs

Roast my resume! Despite having valuable experience, it's not in the software engineering realm so I have not included it. I'm aiming to land my first role in front end development or a related field. Any tips on how to better showcase my skills and make my resume stand out would be incredibly helpful. Thanks!
