While being a coding rockstar is undoubtedly mission No. 1 for any web developer, there are a number of other skills that will make your resume stand out from the rest – and ensure that your clients keep coming back for more.
SEO: understanding the basic principles of search engine optimization and current best practices is a major plus for many recruiters or technical hiring managers. Since driving and growing traffic via organic search is a fairly standard objective for many web projects, so a developer who can provide a strong foundation for the search team (or even work hand-in-hand with them) will stand out in the applicant pool.
PPC Management: like SEO, understanding paid search advertising (or at least what is required for a landing page to achieve high quality score) will help increase your value as a web developer. Not only does SEM and PPC knowledge make you a favorite of the marketing team (everyone loves the developer that makes their job easier), but being capable of not only building optimized landing pages, but developing and executing PPC campaigns yourself is another way to set yourself apart.

When a hiring manager posts a job opening online, they are often deluged with resumes from a huge pool of candidates, ranging from those who are highly qualified to those who simply don’t fit the bill. And of course, sifting through hundreds or even thousands of resumes takes a lot of time, so many recruiters and HR teams use an ATS – applicant tracking system — to sort and filter resumes by keyword, ensuring that only the most suitable candidates end up being reviewed by an actual human.
An ATS is often the first line of defense for busy hiring managers – they use these systems to narrow down the field before they even set eyes on any applicant information. Among ATS users are government agencies, big corporations and many other firms that receive a large number of resumes. An understand how these programs work is essential if you wish to work for virtually any type of large company.Read More
