Having expected some gimmicky resume template, I was relieved to discover my resume was mainly in accordance with the example.
However, I put education and certs at the end. Certainly a senior IT consultant should emphasize real-world experience.I've known people with tons of certs but still incompetent.
Instead of accomplishment bullets, I use complete sentences. Often it is helpful to include information such as group name, which is every bit as meaningful as a job title. Accomplishments are the meat, but you need some gravy to bring out the real flavor.
I also include some skillset info where applicable. Non-techies in HR only understand apps and platforms buzzwords. They know nothing about IT migrations, security assessments, and the like. The example resume tells me zero about John Q. Smith's skill set at EZ Frozen Foods. For all I know he may have done nothing more than install a ZoneAlarm.
Also, I would recommend losing the Available Upon Request section. It goeswithout saying that testimonials and drilldowns of career are available.
Otherwise, good article.
