Data Science Resume Feedback

Roast me. I’m currently looking for data science internships and would like honest feedback on my resume. I’m struggling to get interviews and have experienced very quick rejections with some companies. All feedback is extremely appreciated!

Also, in the rare occasion some of you come across my resume as an applicant, pls help me out. I’m confident I at least have a decent chance of clearing interviews.

    It’s all right but it’s lacking detail. Have like 4 points per company and use the generic data science filler words.

    For the projects part, pleas add some more details.

      I have been practicing sql a bit, along with lots of other stuff. If you don’t mind me asking, do you work in either the quantitative analyst or product analyst role at google?

    FWIW you’re only struggling because you haven’t had a job. If you did you’d have a 🔥 resume. Don’t get down on yourself

      By job do you mean a data science related internship? I’m still in school, so I haven’t had the opportunity to work full time

    Honestly this a is pretty killer resume for someone without job experience. If you aren't getting bites, start actually emailing people instead of sending your resume off into the void, and start doing in person networking.

      Thanks! Unfortunately I don’t have the opportunity to network with most tech companies. I want to move out west coast, but my school is targeted mainly for finance.

    remove the colors and the crappy template you found online - i reviews cvs and see like 10 with the same template as yours per day

      Would a less bold color like blue be better? Or just remove color completely. Also, what about the template don’t you like? I have switched to this format- I originally had a more traditional one, but I made this one for easier readability. Are the little icons what you don’t like? Thanks!

    Your resume looks pretty good with lots of useful common hard skills, but you may be getting quick rejections if it's missing more niche or specific keywords/technologies that a particular job is looking for.

    Do you use a job keyword scanner to see what your resume may be missing? This may help, it'll scan a job post for keywords for you: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jobalytics-resume-keyword/fkiljfkkceaopbpfgfmjdnkiejaifkgd?hl=en&utm_source=blind&utm_medium=social

    You need strong referrals. Other than that, try to put your projects online as web applications
