IT recruiters and IT staffing firms read a lot of resumes. The best candidates, the ones that technical recruiters and IT recruiting companies love to submit to IT jobs, are the IT professionals with excellent skills and experience, as well as clean, thorough, polished resumes. While some IT staffing companies will take the time to help candidates clean up their resumes, it makes you all the more attractive as a candidate if your resume is good as is.
Here’s one way to clean up your resume that will make a big difference: Go through your resume and take out superlatives that you use to talk about yourself. Things like “hard worker,” or “fast learner” aren’t actually useful at all to your IT recruiting firms. Now go back and change those statements into illustrations of what you’ve achieved at your previous job. Think in verbs, not in nouns. Phrases that start with words like “managed,” or “launched,” are what IT staffing agencies want your resume filled with.
