Early Career & Students
Early Career IT Professionals: When you’re just getting started in your IT career, with limited experience (less than 1 year) and seeking entry level positions, the ideal resume emphasizes ability and potential. Show your ability to contribute immediately, and your potential to become a technical leader and valued team member. Combine quality of experience (not quantity) with those personal traits that make you a good workforce investment. Tell your story in a way that makes hiring managers sit up and take notice.
Students & Recent Graduates: The real challenge for graduates is competing with those who have experience. You can make an impression in interviews, but getting the interviews can be difficult. A dynamic resume that differentiates you from the “ordinary student” is the key.
This IT resume writing guide - Supercharge Your IT Job Search - is designed to take students and recent graduates through a step by step process so that they can create their own resumes. The guide is an example driven approach that will help you to truly capture the essence of you — your experiences, capabilities, interests, values, and aspirations. It is filled with tips, techniques, and examples that avoid the pitfalls of the “so what” resume, and highlight your unique and desirable qualities.
If you are a student, recent IT graduate, or have returned to school for additional technical education, then this guide is designed for you.
