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.
