Mistake #7: Too Modest About Achievements

mist7Many professionals in IT are quite modest about their achievements so they tend to include only the barest details on their resumes, which are typically just about the technical results. With so many projects being implemented by thousands of other IT professionals, this does not make them stand out from the crowd.

When an IT professional goes beyond just the end result and instead thinks in terms of how they were able to achieve the results within a challenging business and technical context, then they become unique. IT resumes that tell a straightforward story that connects with both the value to the business and the value to the technical environment, and to team efforts, are memorable. Oftentimes, this story begins with why the project was funded.
