Things To Include In Your IT Resume

No matter where you are in your IT career, you need a well-written technical resume that accurately conveys your value proposition and experience. The job market is stiff and as you search for tech jobs online, it’s essential that you include these in your resume: 

  1. A Professional Title – You want to make it as quick and easy for a hiring manager or recruiter to “get” who you are the second they look at your resume – so including a professional title at the top of your resume is of key importance. Example: Systems Administration Management Professional; IT Security Manager; Data Architect Management Professional; SharePoint Administration Manager; Desktop Support Professional; Cloud Operations Engineer; or Software Engineering Professional.
  2. Keywords from the Job Posting – You’ll want to include (without making it look like you copy/pasted) some keywords and phrases from the job posting. This is very important because practically all employers are using a resume-scanning software and scoring your resume for keywords and phrases.
  3. Metrics – Employers like to see numbers so they can fully evaluate the size and scope of your responsibilities. And metrics help employers determine if a person is capable of leading a team, managing a function, or improving productivity.
  4. Accomplishments and Achievements – Employers want to know what else do you do besides go to work, collect a paycheck and go home. How do you contribute to the company bottom line or growth of your department and team? Under each job position title and description, include the most important, impressive, and relevant achievements.
  5. Certifications and Credentials – If you have a certification or advanced degree that’s considered to be an asset in your field, such as an MBA; Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE); Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA); Citrix Certified Professional – Networking (CCP-N); PMP; PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) or Certified Scrum Master (CSM), include the acronym after your name at the very top of your resume to ensure the recruiter doesn’t accidentally miss this important information when they’re quickly scanning your job application.
