    Cool Can you help me to review my resume

    Just realized that there's a sub forum for resumes&cover letters, I think I posted my cover letter in the wrong forum earlier, sorry about that!

    I need some help with the grammar in my resume. I'll try to break my resume down into different sections so that it's easier to review it. Thanks in advance!

    There are 3 work experience in my resume:

    Full Stack Developer (Company 1)
    January 2018 to Present
    Develop and maintain backend applications for ourkids.net - a website that has 360,000+ monthly unique visits on average using PHP, MySQL, Redis and Memcached.
    Develop frontend web apps(ie. advanced search tools) using Javascript ES6 and react.js
    Develop backend CMS system and CRM system for content team and sales team. Design and develop backend APIs.

    Full Stack Web Developer (Company 2)
    August 2015 to August 2017
    Design, develop and maintain PHP/Wordpress/Laravel and Javascript wesbites
    Build backend system to process data and provide API for web apps using PHP.
    Build web crawler that fetch the price for certain products(target products using ASIN number) on Amazon.com and compare with the product price (after currency conversion using fixer.io) on Amazon.ca and send email notification (using AWS SES) if price is lower by certain amount using Java.
    Develop frontend Javascript web apps for customers.
    Working with graphic designers for cross-platform responsive web designs.

    Programmer (Company 3)
    December 2012 to August 2014
    Design, develop and maintain PHP and JSP websites. Develop Java applications.
    Developed Java web application for "Radius" direct mail service. The application handles file uploads, data processing, combine data using certain criteria and export the processed excel file.
    Work on SEO (Search engine optimization) to help clients improve their website keywords ranking on Google, Yahoo and Bing etc.


    Here are the selected projects in my resume:

    Ourkids landing pages optimization:
    Used MySQL explain statement to analyze slow on-page SQL queries. Restructured and optimized SQL queries to reduce number of rows scanned.
    Used variety of technologies like index and memcached to reduce the page load time.
    The latency of many slow pages reduced from 2s-3s to 500ms-700ms. Overall all the landing pages got at least 30%-40% speed boost.

    School advanced search tool(https://www.ourkids.net/school/adv-search-results.php):
    Help parents to find nearby private schools based on their location and criteria.
    Used javascript ES6, ES7(async+await), React, Google Maps API, React context API.
    Proficiently designed database using MySQL. Developed backend API using PHP

    Stallion Express user account system(https://ship.stallionexpress.ca/login):
    Built user account system using PHP + Laravel.
    Users can manage shipments, personal Information, upload manifest, request pickup, every day the system handles thousands of shipments and by the end of the day a combined manifest can be exported from the system so that it can be sent to the U.S. custom and border department.
    Paypal and Stripe API are used for the credits system.

    And last, this is also a paragraph in my resume - but it doesn't fit into anywhere so I'll paste it here separately:

    Most projects I worked on are closed source projects. But here're some of my hobby projects:
    Advanced search mobile app(https://github.com/jianlubi/adv_search_mobile):
    It's a mobile app I developed using React Native. Main purpose is to figure out the pros and cons of React Native and how much React code I can reuse in React Native.

    This one is too long. I don't have time to read the whole thing. (I guess there's no need to thank me this time.)

    Hi teechar,

    Thank you so much for revising my resume. Even though I haven't got any offer yet, I got much more interviews than before.

    Can I buy you a coffee? Feel free to PM me your paypal.

    I'm fairly sure a get together would be impractical.

    I'm not sure what you mean by that last sentence. Are you set up to use PayPal?

    Let us know how your job search goes

    Hi, I'm glad that you're getting more interviews. If you need help with cover letters, let us know. Try doing/recording a mock interview, and take a look at how you come across. Show the interview to a friend to get some feedback too.

    Don't worry about the coffee; I don't have PayPal.
