IT Professional

Do you use IT to power business value, enhance service, and deliver social benefits?

 

IT plays a dynamic and integral role in every industry and the constant evolution of technology will only fuel further growth as our global economy continues to expand. In this modern digital age, we are already seeing a shift from the traditional, siloed IT roles to one in which IT pros are taking on more of a strategic role to help businesses adapt to the changing IT landscape.

The future belongs to those who find a way to remain relevant. How will you show up?

 

As a Certified Resume Specialist in IT, some of the most common challenges that we see on IT resumes include:

  • Overwhelmingly full of technical jargon … which can be confusing for even the highest level technical readers. Remember, it’s likely the first person reading your resume does not have a technical background!
  • Experience sections with the potential to be incredibly long, depending on whether or not the role was temporary or project-based, which can give many readers of IT resumes the impression that a candidate is a job hopper.
  • An imbalance between technical and transferable skills. It’s essential to show that you have the technical knowledge and expertise to do the job. It’s even more important to recognize that IT involves more than working with machines. 

How we work with you: IT touches all business functions, which means that IT resumes require further research and a higher level of organization to convey an evolved brand that demonstrates you are up to date on the current technology by “walking the talk.” Together, we will reinforce your unique personal brand by tying your achievements and contributions back to the solutions that:

  • Saved the company time and money
  • Optimized business processes and systems to increase efficiency
  • Improved end-user satisfaction to protect against shadow IT practices
  • Helped companies engage better with their clients and employees
  • Accelerated the company’s short-, medium-, and long-term goals

Finally, while technical acumen is important to demonstrate that you have the knowledge and expertise to perform the job functions, it’s even more critical to illustrate your ability to work both independently and communicate complex, technical ideas to both technical and non-technical audiences without coming off as condescending.

Think about this from the Hiring Manager’s perspective.

Would a company rather hire a Software Developer equipped with every IT skill under the sun and absolutely no communication or teamwork capabilities OR a Software Developer who may be less technically advanced but has the ability to adopt the end user’s perspective to solve problems and communicate solutions in easily understandable terms?

Cover Letter – $175 A well-written cover letter, showcasing how your qualifications and previous career successes align with the target position, is essential in determining if your impressive resume leaps to the top of the “yes” pile or lands in the rejection stack. The importance of a powerful cover letter cannot be overstated, especially if you want to be in the running with those who take the initiative to submit one in the first place.

Thank You Letter – $175 A post-interview thank you letter is a necessary (and often overlooked) tool for any job seeker. By expressing your gratitude for the interview and recapping the highlights of the meeting, you revisit the reasons why you are the best candidate for the position. This letter can influence the hiring decision-makers and increase your chances of subsequent interviews (or a job offer) while validating your candidacy, building rapport, and reminding the interviewer of your ability to produce results.

Executive Career Biography – $450  An executive career biography is a storytelling tool that affords an opportunity to reinforce your brand and breathe new life into your professional story in a way that a resume doesn’t allow. Your bio will showcase your leadership and management acumen through softer skills and “good fit” attributes, and link them to your value proposition. Help employers connect with you and envision you on the job having a positive impact by generating chemistry around how you use your key personal attributes, passions, and strengths to make things happen.

Reference Sheet – $150 A reference sheet equips you with a list of people who can verify and positively elaborate on your professional achievements and contributions for a potential employer. This document can include testimonials from previous managers or colleagues who can provide an accurate and positive description of why you are a strong candidate for the position.
