There is plenty of advice out there on how to polish your resume to attract IT recruiters and IT staffing companies. While some advice is mediocre, here is one tip that will definitely get you a lot more attention from technical recruiters and IT staffing agencies: Break up and cut down any big blocks of text in your IT resumes.
Why will this make a difference to IT recruiting companies? It’s all about making it easier for IT staffing firms to see that you’re a great fit for a job. When IT recruiting firms are trying to find the best IT professional for a job, they’re looking at hundreds of resumes. It really slows readers down when your resume is full of dense blocks of text—and time is of the essence for IT recruiters. So make it more likely that IT recruiting agencies will be able to quickly scan your resume and see how accomplished and experienced you are. Use bullet points that are concise and cut out extra info that’s too technical or unnecessary. It might just help you win your next IT jobs!
