Although it’s frustrating to submit your resume to IT staffing firms or direct clients without hearing back, it’s critical to get your information to as many databases as possible. Searching for an IT job is a numbers game, the more databases you submit your resume to, the better odds that you’ll receive a call one day from an IT recruiter with that perfect job.
When IT recruiters are looking through databases, they typically search by keywords. If you check one of our earlier articles, you can check out the tips our IT recruiter gave on putting the right skill keywords in your resume. Therefore, before you submit your resume to that next database, make sure you list as many technical key words that you have experience with as possible (without fabricating of course).
Finally, make sure that all your information is accurate and consistent. One pet peeve IT recruiters have is searching through a database and finding the exact same resume with a slightly different name. By having different names you will obviously confuse IT recruiters, it could hurt your credibility and subsequently your chance to land that perfect technical job.
