This post lists couple of recommendations w.r.t writing resumes for IT jobs. There’s no sure shot way of writing resume and however nicely written, a resume on its own can’t guarantee a job.
Still, based on personal observation, listing couple of common mistakes job seekers should avoid.
· Key information such as experience, skillset and education are not available in first few pages- if these are hidden somewhere at the end, interviewers may not like it
Other tips: include only those facts which you have documentary evidence and you can talk about. One might have worked at his uncle’s factory during summer holiday, but if one tries to show it as an experience and then fails to provide evidence, it is like inviting trouble.
Business ethics: In the interview and in resume, do not give out sensitive information related to your current and past employers (such as billing rates, knowledge treated as intellectual property of the company, etc). Also do not bad mouth people.
