4 essential tech resume tips [Video]

The average hiring manager will only spend six seconds reading your resume before making his or her decision.

Hi, and welcome to the APN video blog!

While demand for IT professionals is high, that doesn’t mean you can skimp out on what matters most: your resume.

Here are four essential tech resume tips:

One: List your most recent experience first, keeping it chronological, with your relevant duties and skills above the fold – or in the upper half of the page.

Two: Add testimonials from former bosses, co-workers and colleagues, as means of proving that you’re experienced, talented and a useful employee.

Three: Debbie Messemer, managing partner at KPMG San Francisco, told Fortune that she always checks for a clear objective or mission statement. Indicate an understanding of an industry and how your role can contribute to the business.

Four: List major eye-popping accomplishments and contributions, saving the smaller details for the interview.
