Hi!


Before you even start writing your resume or CV, you need to thoroughly read and understand the job description. Print and highlight key points if you find it helpful. Then look at which of these points you have experience of or have worked in previously.


When writing your resume, always start with an about me statement. In college, I was taught to use the following format:


'I am a (adjective), (adjective) individual with a (passion for/background in) seeking employment as a (job title).'

You can't tinker with the 'Education' section of your CV, but you can tailor the 'Previous Employment' section and the 'Skills and Attributes' section to suit the information you gleaned from the job description.


Employers in IT typically look for an IT related qualification - a degree or other form of further study. You should also know what kinds of software your role would require and state the ones you have experience of (although don't discuss the ones you haven't worked with).


Finally, a strong cover letter to accompany your resume will introduce you briefly and politely.


Good luck!
