IT Headhunter Makes a Good Technical Resume Writer

You’re an IT professional. Why hire a technical resume writer who doesn’t understand IT?

Technical Background Important for a Technical Resume Writer

People who work in tech have special challenges when it comes to resume writing.

Doesn’t matter if you’re an individual contributor or a senior executive. If you’re in software development, information technology, biotech, engineering, you probably have lots of buzzwords and jargon on your resume.

But buzzwords alone won’t get people interested in interviewing you. You have to express your value to the companies you’ve worked at.

I’ll help you do that. I have a BSEE from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and an MSEE from Northeastern University. I understand technical things and how to express their value in plain English. As a technical resume writer, I’ll guide you to review all the things you’ve worked on across your career. Then I’ll prioritize, organize, and effectively present your primary accomplishments.

After college, I spent the early part of my career working in engineering. So beyond having just an academic understanding of tech, I know what it’s like to work in the field.

An Executive Recruiter’s Perspective

Later on, I left engineering and became a software and IT recruiter. I’ve been a successful executive recruiter in the tech sector for over 30 years and have co-founded 2 recruiting companies.

My technical resume writing clients like working with me because as a headhunter, I’ve been in thousands of hiring situations. I know exactly what hiring managers want to see in your resume, profile, and cover letter. I’ll use my technology-industry recruiting knowledge to create documents for you that will get noticed.
