Another IT Resume Mistake to Avoid

When you’re searching for IT jobs and polishing your resume for IT recruiters and IT staffing companies, there are a lot of ways you can do display you experience and skills.  Many IT professionals will send technical recruiters and IT recruiting firms resumes with sections just to detail their technical proficiencies.  Some IT staffing firms and IT staffing agencies will get resumes with a summary section at the top of the resume.

These are all great things, but sometimes they can create a problem when an IT professional doesn’t start listing their experience until after the first page.  IT recruiting companies want you to be thorough in creating your resume, but your resume will definitely turn off hiring managers and interviewers if you take a page or more to start listing experience.  Hiring managers and IT recruiting agencies only have so much time—if you don’t catch their attention with some strong, relevant experience quickly, you’ll probably lose it.
