    I'm currently doing my masters degree in Computing and I plan to apply for software developer jobs next year.

    I plan to build a website to complement my github & linkedin profiles, but I'm not 100% sure what to put on there and how to structure it.
    • Do you know developer portfolio websites which can serve as good examples?
      I really liked this one: https://timmyomahony.com/
    • As a career entrant with not so much real life work experience: Would you include your hobbies in order to emphasise your softskills? If yes, how? Blog posts?
    • Any other advice you can give me?

    Thank you!

    Don't include hobbies.

    Join upwork or some other jobs site and do some cheap jobs to build up your portfolio.

    Either that or get some real world jobs to build the portfolio. Don't include your hobbies, headhunters will know instantly that you're trying to inflate your resume.

    While you can't do some real job, social programming networks is the way to go.

    Create some side projects and put it on github. Host everything you can. Stackoverflow is a good place to be to.
