With the Masters this weekend, you may not be thinking about your resume. But you should be. Golf is a great example of showcasing practiced and time-honored skills. Try writing your resume like you are in a game of golf and see if you take home a prized green jacket, or maybe a new job.
You are a Pro. Much like golfers are identified by the list tournaments they have won or brands that sponsor them, you’ll use your technical skills and technologies you have worked with on your resume to make it clear who you are and what you offer to an employer. Be sure to put that list near the top of your resume in clear bullet points so that it is visible quickly. Show the range of technologies you have worked with in order of which skills are most recent, but leave out the “in-progress” statement, staying on top of technologies is a necessity for IT pros and it is expected by IT hiring managers. Be aware of which technologies are outdated. The IT world is constantly changing and you want to let employers know that you can keep up.
