Tech Stack to Stand Out

A great way to stand out on the job hunt is to show your tech stack. For example, if you want a customer support role at a startup, you might want to learn Zendesk or Intercom.

You can learn the basics of a tool by watching a Youtube video about it, then show what you learn by writing a blog post (with screenshots or screencast of what you learned!).

Then send that to the company (forget the resume). Show, don't tell!
