Tips for Writing a Better Android Developer Resume

1. Vary your description

You can accurately describe your work as “creative” and “innovative.” But these words fail to make your experience stand out on a resume. That’s because (a) they’re pretty vague by themselves, and (b) countless other job seekers also use these adjectives on their own resumes. Try to get a little more precise. Use less common, more-descriptive terms to show the actual, unique value of applications you’ve developed.

Examples:

  • Complex
  • Comprehensive
  • Cutting-edge
  • Engaging
  • High-quality
  • Intuitive
  • Inventive
  • Lucrative
  • Next-generation
  • Polished
  • Popular
  • Relevant
  • Robust
  • Secure
  • Sleek
  • Sophisticated
  • Stable
  • User-friendly
  • Viable
  • Well-received

 

2. Strike the right tone

Notice how the above adjectives list doesn’t include “Excellent,” “Amazing,” or other more subjective terms. That’s because the tone of language on your resume should be formal and direct (as opposed to the more casual tone of a LinkedIn profile and the eager, confident voice of a cover letter). To achieve that direct tone on your resume, try to use simple sentences and straightforward descriptions of your experience.

Keep this advice in mind, especially when writing your Profile section, since you may be tempted (or think you need) to use overly “promotional” terms like “Exceptional” or “Outstanding at” when a straight-shooting phrase like “Skilled at” is better.

Example:

Android Developer with 4+ years experience in the film and TV entertainment industry. Skilled at developing secure, reliable Android applications. Advanced technical skills include Android Jetpack, jQuery, MySQL, Retrofit, and Xamarin. Recent demonstrated success in a leadership and training role. Highly adaptable to new business challenges and market conditions.

3. Tell your story

You may have been told to avoid passive phrases like “Responsible for” or “Tasked with” on your resume. But that’s difficult when you don’t know what the “active” alternative would be.

For an active tone in your writing, think in terms of a story describing “characters and their actions.” (For more on this principle, see Joseph Williams’s popular writing book “Style: Toward Clarity and Grace.”) And who’s the primary character of your resume? You, of course. Your resume may contain many details on various jobs and projects, but you should center it all on yourself and your past actions in relation to them. A helpful way to make sure you’re doing this: Begin every job description sentence as an “I” statement, then take out the “I” and leave the rest of the phrase on your final resume.

Examples:

  • [I am] Focused on building intuitive, engaging user experiences for a broad target audience
  • [I] Recently took on leadership role helping train and supervise new hires
  • [I] Devised 12 new applications compatible across smartphone, smartwatch, and tablet devices
  • [I] Conceptualized and developed 18 popular new application features

How to Align Your Android Developer Resume With the Job Description

You can use your Profile to call out your most relevant technical skills to give your resume an extra edge. Just add the phrase “Technical skills include” and then list the programs you are versed in that also appear in the job description. (See Example 3 above.) This extra step helps the hiring manager see the full measure of your relevant background and skill set.
