How to Write a Resume That Gets You Hired in Tech

Does everything about the tech job market make you nervous?

Or is it just the thought of stepping into one of those open offices, sitting across from a hiring manager in plastic-rimmed glasses, and trying to sound like you’ve been using JavaScript for years?

Totally understandable! I’ll get to that job interview thing later. But before you can slide into a beanbag and land your very first tech job title, you need to GET the interview.

In other words, you need a resume that convinces hiring managers it is worth their time to call you up and bring you into the office.

Unfortunately, resumes don’t look exactly like they used to, ESPECIALLY in the fast-paced tech scene, where results are more important than impressive pedigrees and your skill set trumps your years of experience.

Dusting off and updating your trusty resume is hard enough. How do you go about adapting it to the tech job market?

Today on SkillcrushTV, Randle is walking you through the 3 steps to writing a resume that will get you hired in tech. Hint: your 4 years of college lacrosse might not be relevant when it comes to mobile design, and tech resumes are all about hard skills.

Head to our YouTube channel and find out EXACTLY what you need to do to get your resume in order, and stay tuned for more helpful career tips.

    Miles de policías se han manifestado hoy, bajo la lluvia, en Madrid, convocados por el Sindicato Unificado de Policía (SUP), mayoritario en el cuerpo, para trasladar al Ministerio del Interior su malestar por los recortes salariales a los agentes. Las derechas han sido siempre las que se han presentado como las grandes defensoras de la patria, defensa que requiere los máximos sacrificios de los que están a su servicio. Y el servicio técnico no esta mal la verdad y eso que estaba acojonado por lo que se leia a veces.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Great work!
