Are personal websites good as a substitute for a resume, or should I stick to the traditional one-page paper?

You can have both but website should not substitute a resume

Put the website on your resume. Problem solved :)

Most hiring process requires a PDF/word version of your process. So you still need a CV 😁

Resume is always necessary but a lot of online application forms leave a space for you to include a link to your personal website if you have one.

I like to have both, especially if you are doing something creative like web development

I think there is merit in both!

Random, but valid/persistent thought.

After 2 years of a pandemic and working independently for many years, I am not feeling interviews AT ALL. There are points in the interview where I want to just say "Look! Either hire me or don't".

How can I get over this feeling? I'm over the whole "stand in the line of fire to prove how good I am" bs. Any recommendations for getting over this or possible industries to pivot into to avoid bs interview processes and ghosting?

What would you do?

(Or really this is just me typing out loud. )

Currently 6 years at job A at 100K and 10K annual bonus but lil to no upward mobility. It's safe if not going anywhere.

Recruiter reached out regarding Job B at 130K with greater advancement potential but it starts out at 6 Months Contract to Hire per the agency contract. No bonus, benefits adequate by comparison. There is no guarantee to go full time.

Interview just for practice?

Do PM’s also have ample opportunities to hop if desired? Not that I want to be a frequent hopper but it’s more about the breadth of possibilities. 2) I see ads of certifications for PM both from “bootcamp” style schools and traditional universities. Are these helpful or not really?
