IT resumes are different.
IT resumes are especially challenging specifically because of the technology aspect. While it is important to itemize the technologies with which you have experience, you don’t want a list of technologies to dominate a resume or to hide your other assets as a prospective employee.
It is important to describe your career and accomplishments in a way that highlights value creation at least as much as technology. An ideal technical resume will describe projects, the value of those projects to the employer, and your contributions to those projects.
My prices are competitive with other leading resume writers.
For mid-level IT professionals, I charge between $675 and $750 for a resume. You’ll receive a fixed price quote following the initial consultation. Included in this price are a draft resume plus 3 cycles of refinement to ensure that the language and presentation are just right for you. After receiving your final resume, you’ll have a month to use it and let me know if we need to make further changes. I use a comprehensive process that gets results.My background is in IT and Business Intelligence.
I’ll understand your technical projects, the environment in which you work, and the challenges you’ve faced. For the last 5 years, I’ve written resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles for the geekiest of IT professionals on up to CIOs.
When you work with me, the process of creating your resume will be about exploration and discovery, and finding just the right words to describe your achievements.
I stay updated on technology and technical practices.
Keeping current is yet another challenge of IT resumes. Technologies and technical practices change rapidly, and choosing those that are right, relevant, and recent to list on your resume can be difficult. These and many other factors make IT resumes a real challenge.
It is for this reason that I regularly attend industry events and take classes in data quality, information management, business intelligence, data governance, IT management, IT project management, IT program management, etc. I also have a strong network of technology professionals and friends that keep me updated on the latest trends.
I use a storytelling process to understand your achievements. Since interviewing is all about storytelling, my clients are better positioned to do well.
I’ll help you select those projects that do the best job of describing your strengths. You’ll start by writing out narratives that tell me everything about each of these projects, beginning with why the project was funded. I’ll want to know the technical issues, the problems that came up, and how you were able to resolve them.
I use an-depth and comprehensive process to write resumes.
If you are looking for a quick turnaround then I’m not the person for you. I’ll need time to think about your achievements and figure out how to position you. I can’t do that quickly.
First, you’ll write out your project and program stories. I’ll then put a rough draft together and we’ll get on the phone to talk through everything. My goal is to make sure that the resume sounds and feels right to you. I achieve this by using very straight forward language that is clear, concise, and easy to understand, even by a non-technical reader.
