Technical Resume Writing

N. Nadine Miller


Technical Resume Writing covers the high points of overhauling your resume to receive better responses from the HR "gatekeepers" as well as potential IT managers and colleagues. Topics covered will include: "career objective" versus "professional summary"/"profile", improving the 30 second response to your resume, adding quantitative information to your resume, the type of resume to use, tailoring resumes to specific job listings, and improving the visual design of your resume. Real-world examples of before and after resumes help demonstrate how to adapt your own experiences. The principles taught apply to social networking profiles in addition to paper and on-line resumes. Bring your resume and be ready to ask specific questions.
