Reviewers spend about six sec-
onds on a resume when they
make their first pass. That means
your technical expertise has to
leap out at a glance. You can make
that happen by incorporating
your technical skills into every
section of the document. But bear
in mind: Employers aren t just
looking for technical skills...
They re looking for the right tech-
Think about it: A company that s
advertising for a software developer
has very specific work that needs
to be done, which will require
expertise in certain tools and tech-
nologies. If your resume doesn t
prominently feature skills that
match their needs, the employer
won t make the connection between
you and the job it needs to fill.
That means the first step toward
effectively presenting your technical
skills is to customize your resume
to the job you re applying for. Yes,
that s a lot of work. Yes, it may mean
you ll apply for fewer jobs. But cus-
tomizing your resume is a sure way
to increase the chances that an
employer will see you as a good fit.
MATCH SKILLS TO
THE JOB DESCRIPTION
The key is to study the job
description. In it, the company
will detail the technology and tools
that it uses. For example, an ad
for a software developer might
describe requirements that include
experience with Java/J2EE,
WebLogic, and Agile development
methodologies, plus object oriented
design and strong web program-
ming skills. If your background
matches these needs, you ve got
a road map to customizing your
resume in a way that s going to
get the employer s attention.
INCLUDE THE RIGHT SKILLS
The first step is to be specific.
Tweak your entries so that they
include references to the skills
and experience described in the
For example, instead of writing
that you "designed and developed
user interfaces," say you "designed
and developed user interfaces as
part of an Agile development
effort." Don t simply say that you
"coded." Instead, include references
to specific languages you ve used
in the course of your work: "Coded
numerous projects using Java,
SET OFF YOUR
Next, create a separate "Tech-
nical Skills" section of your resume
where you can list all of your skills
in one place. Organise the list
according to area -- for example,
"Languages," "Tools," etc. -- or by
type of technology: "Program-
ming," "Networking," "Platforms,"
etc. The section might look some-
thing like this:
Java Beans, C, C++
• Networking: Cisco, Juniper,
• Operating Systems: Microsoft
Windows XP/2000; Mac OS
Typically, this section should go
near the top of your resume,
beneath your objective statement
or career summary. Placing the list
so prominently increases the
chances that reviewers will spot
your qualifications at first glance.
And don t worry about the fact
that this list repeats information
you ve included in your job sum-
maries. This section is about mak-
ing your skills easy to see.
Technical certifications should
also be broken out. They can be
listed along with your college
degrees in an "Education" section
or, if you have more than one or
two, in a separate section entirely.
Either way, list one per line.
Remember, your resume s job is
to get you an interview. By high-
lighting the technical skills that
match the employer s needs, you ll
demonstrate that you re already
an expert in the technologies they
use --and that you re a candidate
worth talking to.
