How We Write IT Application Material
IT professionals have become more and more specific over an incredibly rapid period of time. Over the last few years we have witnessed the changes to IT resumes first hand. Ensuring that your resume speaks to the employer with the particular focus of your skill set is fundamental to getting noticed.
We prefer to have the inclusion of an Industry Skills or Technical section outlining OS, Languages, Databases and Applications to enable the employer to see quickly what your capabilities are. We gear these sections dependent on your field, using targeted questions to ensure that we’ve covered all bases.
Important, and frequently not included, is the extensive list of professional development that you have undertaken. User-centred design is a great IT specific skill– and fantastic as an approach to resumes as well.
IT resumes can be difficult to encompass both technical and soft skill elements, but we love the results we get.
IT Selection Criteria
Our approach to selection criteria is a standard structure applicable to all selection criteria: Situation, Task, Approach, Result, best known as STAR.
Questions to start asking yourself are:
- What has been your project involvement?
- What are all the technical skills you have?
- What are your certifications?
- What was your most technically challenging issue?
- Who are the major stakeholders/end-users?
- What process improvements have you introduced?
IT is the best industry to be in at this time.
