Perhaps you’re trying to create a resume that attracts IT recruiters and IT staffing firms. Or maybe you’re already working with technical recruiters and IT recruiting companies, but your resume needs a little oomph. Here’s one tactic to make that resume more powerful and alluring for both IT staffing agencies and hiring managers alike.
Arguably the most important part of your resume, the part IT recruiting firms and interviewers spend the most time considering, is the bullets you have beneath previous IT jobs. One of the most efficient ways to make your resume more impactful, then, is to polish these bullets. How can you do this?
Ask yourself this question about each job: ‘What did I do to increase this employer’s revenue, make their workplace better, or make my team or boss’s workload easier? Now go back and try to work some of these answers into your bullets for each job. You’ll want to keep a brief reference to your main job duties, but your achievements are most important. If you can help IT staffing companies and interviewers see what value you bring to employers in a very concrete way, you will immediately increase your chances of landing a job.
