Cat naps

Because adulthood is hard and we all need a break, here are some pictures of cats basking in the warmth of a laptop keyboard.

Well, it’s either that they all love a cozy set of keys or a carefully calculated cat network designed to stop humans from getting work done. Honestly, both scenarios check out.

The News

Trying to break into the tech industry without a relevant — or any — degree? You’re certainly not alone. Recognizing the amount of untapped local tech talent, Azavea, a civtech company in Philly’s Callowhill, created an apprenticeship program that helps people with nontraditional backgrounds develop the skills they need to get hired for a full time tech position. Learn more and get your tech on at the link above.

Hot Tip!

A common piece of advice is to tailor your resume and cover letter to fit the job to which you’re applying. Take this one step further by using a word cloud generator to visualize how closely you’re mirroring the post.
Copy and paste the text from the listing into a generator like TagCrowd, then do the same for your docs. Ideally, the largest (most frequent) words should be the same. If they’re not, adjust your wording until it’s closer to the job description. This will help you perform better in the employer’s ATS and stand out more when a recruiter scans your resume.

The End

Thanks for joining us this week, friends. Don’t forget that you can check out the entire list of open opportunities whenever you want, day or night, 24/7, around the clock — you get the picture — at this link.
