Resume Design Tips for Programmersby Bari Pritchett, President- OASYS Recruiting Services
There are a few key elements that go into building your resume.
1. Career Objective or Career Summary
The career objective is your goal that you want the direction of your career to go as well as what you can bring to the employer hiring you.
Remember, your resume is like an advertisement. Pretend that you are the hiring manager reading the resume. What are the key things that you would want the person to find out about your work experience.
A Career Summary is a brief synopsis of your goals. It leads the reader into your resume.
For Information Technology resumes:
1. List all of your project experience in chronological order. Make sure you put the important things, not all of the boring details. You don't want to bore the reader.
· Accomplishments, responsibilities, what programming languages and Operating Systems did you work with.
2) After you have listed all of your project experience, than you list all of your programming languages, Operating Systems, and how long you used them.
3) Remember to add any relevant education, certifications, and training. Also, list associations or affiliations if they are potentially important in the position you are applying for.
