Should my CV have a photo or not?
This agrees with a study conducted by novoresume, who found most European countries now expect a photo apart from Ireland, the UK and the USA. Comments on the poll also suggested including a photo increases unconscious bias and discrimination. Others felt that including a photo gave a 'human' touch to the CV. However, the jury is still out!

Is it better for a Le Wagon graduate to work at a big company or a small company?
- At a bigger company there might be more of a formal training program.
- At a smaller company you might be working more directly with more experienced engineers.
- At a bigger company it can take longer to ship code so you may not directly see the outcome of your work immediately.
- At a smaller company you might have more ownerships over particular features.
How do I apply to Le Wagon partner companies?
If you find a company that you're interested in, you can head to their careers page and see what roles they have available. In addition, you can search for Le Wagon alumni who work at said company and reach out to them on Slack or LinkedIn to see if they have any advice before you apply.
