10 Ways to Tweak Your Tech Resume

10 Ways to Tweak Your Tech Resume

Okay, now you need to find a new job. As a techie you may thought you have so many things to mention to the recruiters. What are the best ways to include into your resume? eWeek has researched and gives some advices on how to write practical and outstanding resume to get an interview. The article lists ten quick tips:

  • ATS: The most important letters you need to know
  • Skills section keywords
  • Don’t use a template
  • A good objectives section counts
  • Lose the one-page-only rule
  • Avoid the personal
  • Cover letters are not critical
  • Don’t spend 100 hours on it
  • Go old school
  • Use common sense

In my opinion, the most important would be using skills section keywords. In the recent recruitment which I conducted, I require to screen over 100 resumes for a position even after HR has screened out majority of the applications. I use keywords to search for essential skills that required for the job. If the candidates do not have that particular keywords – usually means it is too bad for them. Having the relevant keywords also means the candidates have done their homework of researching what are required.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
