Warning: New breaking changes has been introduced in the master. This guide is now outdated. It will be updated soon. Now, your site configuration files should be in data/en/sections directory and should follow this format.

The Experiences section has been designed to truly reflect your career background. It should give the viewer an idea about the responsibilities you have handled in various stages of your career. In this post, we are going to configure the Experiences section of your site.

At first, create an experiences.yaml file in the data directory of your site. Then, follow the following instruction.

Add Your Experiences

Now, let’s add an experiences section in the experiences.yaml file as below,

# Your experiences
experiences:
- designation: Software Engineer
  company:
    name: Example Co.
    url: "https://www.example.com"
    location: Dhaka Branch
    # company overview
    overview: Example Co. is a widely recognized company for cloud-native development. It builds tools for Kubernetes.
  start: Nov 2017
  # don't provide end date if you are currently working there. It will be replaced by "Present"
  end: Dec 2020
  # give some points about what was your responsibilities at the company.
  responsibilities:
  - Design, develop and manage disaster a recovery tool [Xtool](https://www.example.com) that backup Kubernetes volumes, databases, and cluster's resource definition.
  - My another responsibility.
  - My more responsibilities.

Each entry in the experiences section should have the following information,

  • designation: Represents your position at the company.
  • company: Some information about your company. You should provide name, url, location, and a brief overview of the company.
  • start: Time when you had joined the company.
  • end: Time when you have left the company. If you are currently working in the company, don’t provide this field.
  • responsibilities: A list of responsibilities you handled in the company. This section is very important as it will give the viewer an idea about the professional responsibilities you are capable to deal with.

You can use markdown syntax in overview field of company section and responsibilities field.

The following image shows how the contents of experiences.yaml are mapped into the Experiences section.
