Having reviewed and written thousands of
resumes for IT project managers, I still see common
mistakes that most people make that cause their
resume to be less than effective.
In short, they don t address the most important
things an employer wants to know.
So let s look at the key points that should be
addressed on your IT project manager resume.
HOW MANY IT PROJECTS HAVE YOU DONE?
There is a big difference between someone who
has led over 20 medium to large, global projects and
someone who has managed fewer than five.
Don t make the employer look at all the projects
you ve done to figure this out, just summarize it for
them and indicate the scope and scale of the larger
projects. For example, in the summary of your cre-
"Have successfully managed over 20 highly visible
projects ranging from budgets of $50K to $4M."
WHAT TOOLS, TECHNIQUES,
AND METHODOLOGIES DID YOU USE?
According to industry statistics, most projects are
not on time and are over budget. This may be exac-
erbated if the user communities realise that what
they got is different from what they expected, leading
to additional efforts to deliver the budgeted solution.
So if you are practiced in the proven tools and
methodologies that drive a higher level of quality,
on-time delivery and internal/external customer sat-
isfaction, let them know.
PMI methodologies are a good start and these are
demonstrated by having the PMP certification.
Other related tools and methodologies include
Agile, Scrum, Rational Unified Process (RUP), ITIL,
JAD, RAD, SCM, Waterfall and PMBOK. Since most
good companies will have some internal standards,
you want to show that you are well-steeped in some
of the more common and effective methodologies.
WHAT CHALLENGES DID YOU FACE
... AND WHAT DID YOU DO?
All projects have challenges that threaten their
success. It gives you a competitive edge in your
resume to highlight how you kept projects on track.
Did you facilitate work sessions with disparate
stakeholders to drive consensus and buy-in? Did you
find an alternate supplier or device that eliminated
delays? Showcase how you thought outside of the
box to ensure the project s success. And if you have
an impressive track record of delivering on time and
on budget, mention that.
HOW WELL DO YOU INTERACT
WITH THE STAKEHOLDERS?
Your ability to understand the business needs of your
stakeholders ensures that you are delivering a solution
that will have the anticipated benefit. Remember too
that good communication skills have always been one
of the top things an employer wants in an IT Project
Manager, so take some time in your resume to focus
on your ability to build collaborative relationships.
• Highlight any business analysis you were involved
in, reviewing work and data flows to improve pro-
• Showcase how you helped ensure the appropriate
level of training and your frequent communications
to users to manage change and risk.
• Mention how you worked with the department
managers to make sure your efforts did not disrupt
• If you have testimonials from users, sometimes it
is good to pepper your resume with a quote or two.
LASTLY: SHOULD I LIST ALL OF MY PROJECTS?
The answer to this is yes and no. The purpose of
the resume is to get them to call you, not to detail
everything you have ever done. Notwithstanding,
especially for contractor roles, the hiring manager
might want to see project details.
