Get roasted πŸ”₯

I've hired many developers over the years and I've gotten good at understanding if a candidate is good or not based on their resume. I usually require a few seconds to see if we're going to be a good match or not.

What the hell is a roast? It's a 10-minute personalized video, packed with my expertise and easy-to-implement advice that will improve your CV. Sent to you within 48 hours. It looks something like this video on the right.

  • πŸ’Έ I will help you make sure your CV is just right.
  • πŸ¦„ I will take a hard non-scripted look at your Resume, like I would do for a real position.
  • πŸ— P.S. This landing page is still a work in progress and the 28$ is the discounted price to gather testimonials.

Is this you?

  • πŸ’Έ Young software developer looking to switch jobs and sending out CVs but getting no callbacks?
  • πŸ¦„ Senior Developer who recently joined the job market and unsure if your CV is still good enough?
  • πŸ— Or just in general, looking to get some edge on the competition with your CV?

What value you get from the roast

I'd like to say it straight β€” if you're a software engineer looking for a job β€” the roasting will be of great value to you. This service is basically me taking a hard look at your resume as a CTO and commenting on all the good and the bad parts β€” without any prepared texts β€” real live reaction to what you send and real-time advice. Here's the breakdown:

  • πŸ“· Up to 10 minutes of me explaining my thought process when I see your CV for the first time. All the good and the bad things. You'll know immediately your strengths.
  • πŸ’Ό I will be commenting real-time about what recruiters focus on and what they will see when they open your CV.
  • πŸ¦„ I will tell you how and what to change to stand out from the stack of resumes that an engineering manager usually gets.
  • πŸ’‘ You will find out how your resume does in the real world scenario, when a real CTO sees it for the first time. I will be fully transparent with you.
  • πŸ₯‡ You wil understand what is your perceived level based on the experience that you list.
  • βœ… You will improve your chances to land that dream job you always wanted.
  • πŸ’Έ That's it, I'm not a sales guy.

Over 1,000 15 engineers CVs were happily roasted.

I started this on October 22, 2023 and have already roasted quite a few CVs from different engineers. Everyone was happy with the results. Again, I'm not a sales guy, but here are some of the testimonials

    • Vadim gave great feedback on my resume. He showed me places where I had flaws in my approach to writing a resume, and ways to fix them. He gave great insights into his thought process during the roast. Did I say that he did the whole thing unscripted, without looking at the resume before opening it?

      All-in-all, I would recommend his roast to everyone with a resume: a second, fresh look at it never hurts!

    • Wow thanks for your prompt reply. Very pleased with the feedback. I had more information in a previous cv but i thought of making it lighter. Will re-add and try find a balance on the volume of text per job. Thank you so much, will review feedback again.

    • Thanks for pointing out the issues with my resume! Vadim took apart my CV and gave me a lot of very good advice on what to change.

    • As for feedback, I think you went through how a recruiter would check the CV which is cool to see it in this way, and for the testimonial, would you like me to write it now or should I try to update the CV and see the result and write it when I got a job :) ?

    • Vadim gave me some great feedback with constructive critique as he saw my resume and portfolio in real-time, which gave me a good idea of how others might view them within the first few seconds (which is critical). I'll be implementing his suggestions to help stand-out from the crowd.

    • Thank you, that was really excellent feedback. My friend is implementing your suggestions as we speak and the confidence in the job hunt has grown exponentially. Amazing work, thank you.

    • Vadim's review was really useful and a bit eye-opening.

      I've had HR's take a paid professional look at my resume to help me improve it, but they usually are not deep involved with technologies you're working with, so Vadim provided a helpful insight

    • It was really great to have specific insightful feedback from you. Especially when it comes to which sections/information's are unnecessary.

    • I handed Vadim the tough job of reviewing a resume that I've been polishing for years, and he still provided some awesome feedback that I could use right away. I'll definitely be asking for another of his thorough reviews whenever I hit the job market again!

    • Hey Vadim, thanks for your nice suggestions, those were really useful. Its always different to ask for opinions from a complete outside rather than a friend or someone known to you. Already working on the improvements. Cheers!
