IT recruiters go through resume after resume to find keywords that will match the IT job description. Therefore, it’s important for prospective IT candidates to include as many key words in their resumes as possible.
For example, if you’re a Software Engineer, be sure to add all of the development languages and tools that you have experience with (obviously without fabricating). By doing so, your resume will be more likely to be found by IT recruiters.
If an IT staffing firm receives a new IT job order for a VB.NET Developer who has experience developing code that will sit a SQL Server database. Subsequently, their IT recruiters are likely going to search “VB.NET and developer and SQL Server.” If you didn’t list the different programming languages, as well as various databases, your resume would not come up in the IT recruiter’s search.
