Know Your Passion
Everybody can describe what he or she did in previous roles. What will make you stand out is accentuating your passion projects; that way, you’ll demonstrate to the hiring managers that you enjoy certain tech disciplines so much, you even pursue them during your off-hours.
But a lot of candidates also pursue passion projects. How do you make yourself stand out? Don’t just say that you’ve built an app or Website—everybody’s done that. Instead, show the impact your project might have had. That doesn’t necessarily mean you earned a lot of money from it; you can show how you introduced more efficient code or pioneered a new development technique.
