Описание

There is absolutely no doubt that to be an IT Technician you need to be clever. There are operating systems, methodologies, frameworks, dynamic applications, programming languages, visual tools, components. The list goes on.

CV reading is generally not a particularly stimulating task. An agency recruiter spends a very considerable amount of time doing nothing else because that’s what they’re paid to do. Wrong! They’re paid to find a winning candidate for the position their company is being paid to fill.

TO WIN, YOU NEED TO BE IN CONTROL and getting a job today generally involves sending in your CV, possibly psychological testing and interviews. THE ONLY part of this process that YOU CAN CONTROL is the content of your CV. At every other stage the employer is in control. BUT you can influence their level of control by making certain that your CV and covering letter are Attention Grabbing, Easy to Read, Persuasive and Directly Relevant.

This book shows you how to write a clean, clear, brief and direct CV with no vague statements but hard-facts to put you into the "contact for interview" list!

CV Writing for IT Technicians

There is absolutely no doubt that to be an IT Technician you need to be clever. There are operating systems, methodologies, frameworks, dynamic applications, programming languages, visual tools, components. The list goes on.

However, when it comes to representing themselves on paper most are generally poor. There is too much concentration on the bits and bytes stuff and far too little on the person, their key competencies, directly relevant experience and scale and scope indicators. In addition sadly, most CV’s are badly laid out and confusing to the reader.

You’ve got to remember that while all the stuff you know is directly meaningful to you, it is unlikely to be that understandable to a recruiter, who after all is not a techie. Too much importance is given to listing out a load of acronyms and technology references without giving due attention to relevance and true experience. In the world of selling products have features and benefits. Poor salespeople concentrate on the features; good ones concentrate on the benefits. IT technicians generally fall into the first category.

CV reading is generally not a particularly stimulating task. An agency recruiter spends a very considerable amount of time doing nothing else because that’s what they’re paid to do. Wrong! They’re paid to find a winning candidate for the position their company is being paid to fill.

If acting under retainer on behalf of a client their role is to act as a gatekeeper - filtering CV's against the brief they have been given and only selecting, in their best judgement, the most likely- looking candidates for further scrutiny.

You must also be aware that software is often used to extract CV's that most closely match a brief from a database of stored CV's. So now you have to come to the top without necessarily being touched by human hand!
