CV Tips for IT Professionals

The CV of all software professionals carries the details of their degrees and experience in programming with different languages. These are the basic details which your CV must have as software professional. The problem here is that most of the software programmers would have those kinds of degrees and software development experiences. So, what can you do to make your CV stand out?

If you want your CV to appear different from the crowd, you need to put in some extra things to attract the attention of recruiters.

Here’s a list of certain things which can add a weight to your CV and help you in getting that extra mileage:

1. Exhibit deep technical and domain knowledge:

While most of the people programming in a language would know coding but if you have worked rigorously on a particular aspect of the language, provide information about it in your CV at a prime place. Similarly, if you have a good knowledge of a particular domain, include that information also in your CV.

For example many people code in but if you have dealt with any security aspects in the code while working on a financial project, this can make you stand out from the crowd. Many companies would specifically look for developers with sound knowledge of financial domain. Your chances of getting an interview call will be brighter in this case.

Fresh graduates can mention about the live projects they performed.

2. Membership of any professional bodies:

If you are a member of any user group or community, regular contributor to a forum, magazine or journal, provide this information in your CV. It can make a big difference when CVs are being shortlisted and also during the interview. These memberships exhibit your activeness in the community and also your level of knowledge.

3. Awards you have won:

Awards from a third body work as a stamp on your expertise. These can be the awards you have won either in technical or non-technical field. While winning an award at a quiz competition testifies your knowledge, an award at a paper presentation competition exhibits your ability to think, write and put your knowledge into words. If you win an award in sports, it exhibits your fitness, energy and sports man spirit.

4. Any leadership roles:

You may be the leader of Rotary Club in your city or you may be the leader of a local user group, mentioning these in your CV shows your ability to lead and manage people. This is also testifies that you are an eligible and trusted candidate to lead a team at office.

5. Examples of creative thinking and innovation:

Good companies appreciate creative thinking to deal with regular things and innovative ideas in their employees. So, yes if you want to make it large and want your CV stand out, provide some place to the creative and innovative stuff you did in your CV. This can be as big a things as writing a research paper to as small a thing as increasing the conversion rate of trial users to customers by tweaking the software a bit technically.

6. Others:

You may be the member of an NGO working for the society or a regular blood donor, providing this information in your CV makes you look like a responsible member of the society and some one who can be relied upon.
