Quantify major accomplishments, et al.

by Too Old For IT In reply to DOWNLOAD: 10 things: Crea ...

This is the biggest problem is resume prep that I see.

Most of us have just had assinments that we completed. Yet head hunters, and HR dweebs think that everyone they look at should have a BIG! LIST!! of ACCOMPLISHMENTS!!! that impact the BOTTOM LINE!!!! in a MAJOR WAY!!!!!

And if you don't, you do not deserve to have a job anywhere, not even at McDonalds.

just my 2?

Different Folks have different strokes?

May I ask, will this tip will work in any place or country?

From where I am, IT folks requires the entire contents of your IT life. It DOES matter if you have listed all of the certifications and experiences, etc. From here I am, a 10 page resume is ok. Plus certs. And they still have room for interviews. HR just gives the lot of resumes to the IT and they review it themselves. You know, things like that.

Anyway, point taken. Thanks for this tip.
