I have written and seen thousands of IT Exec-
utive resumes and a lot of them are missing
the point. This article will describe the key ele-
ments that should be in an IT Executive resume.
Did you understand what the organization need-
As you move up the IT management ladder, you
transition from being a technical overseer to more
of a business driver.
Sure you have to make sure the IT initiatives are
well-executed, but at the very top, you are the
company s expert on how to get the most out of
technology. That makes you both a business
strategist and technology-focused change agent.
To do this effectively, you need to know the
business and its core business levers.
That means that your IT Executive resume
should showcase how you partnered with
executives and line managers to understand the
markets, competition, opportunities, and threats
as well as the internal business work and data
Armed with this expert knowledge, you would
go on to show how you improved the company s
performance through the evangelization and
savvy use of technology.
How did you improve the technology
Once you ve shown that you can identify the
areas where technology would be valuable, now
you have to show how you managed its use.
Talk to a company s managers about their
technology wish lists and you will have a rather
long list. Now you have to have the business
processes in place to organize that list.
Did you establish a business case justification
process that measures the ROI from IT
Have you been part of committees that help
business units quantify and understand the
impact of technical initiatives in a consistent
manner? Importantly, do you have the
interpersonal skills and talent to drive stakeholder
consensus and buy-in when there are disparate
Have you diplomatically managed
relationships with frustrated user
communities whose initiatives did not make
Your ability to build these business partner
relationships with your stakeholders is critical to
your effectiveness (and success) so prepare to
highlight your talent in this area.
How did you implement solutions?
So far, you have shown how you have been
instrumental in defining and prioritizing your
firm s key initiatives and their expected return.
Now you have to show on your resume why the
next employer should have confidence in your
ability to implement these solutions. This is
important because the majority of projects and
large scale programs are still over budget and not
meeting their timelines. Yes, you can highlight
specific initiatives like ERP installations,
virtualization, and green programs, but that
doesn t really answer the question.
Here you want to speak to proven, best-in-class
processes and methodologies.
• Did you setup or improve a PMO?
• What effect did that have on cycle times,
quality, and internal/external customer
• Did you introduce Agile/Scrum or other new
tools and methodologies into the mix?
• Did you shorten learning curves through
strong change management?
• Did you establish a consistent,
secure and scalable architecture?
Here you have to give your next
employer the confidence that you will
improve the delivery of solutions. Of
course, you should quantify as much as
possible the impact of such efforts,
proving that the expected ROI was
Validate your story
Now that you have shown that you
have the talent, prove it by highlighting
some key initiatives.
Here it is important to remember your
audience, the executive decision maker
and what is important to them.
A migration from Vista to Windows 7
is lovely but is that a strategic initiative
that supports your theme?
Think in terms of the CEO s key goals:
sales, profits, market share, and risk
management, and speak to those goals.
In this economy employers want to
know how you increased sales or saved
money through reduction in actual costs
and productivity improvements.
• Did you improve customer
engagement on the web sites that
translated to sales increases?
• Did you help marketing break
through into new markets through
localization or new systems?
• Did you establish safe and brand-
supportive practices for using social
• Are you effectively protecting the
company s data?
Compare this to most IT executive
resumes that start by stating I am a great
manager (aren t we all?) and then lists
major projects. Take the next leap up and
make your resume showcase your skills
along these lines and you will see a
dramatic improvement in your job
