Skills every IT resume should include

If there is one job role that’s among the highest in demand, it's the job in the IT field.

As more and more businesses go digital, the demand for developers is also increasing and with the growing demand, the competition for the IT jobs is getting tougher day by day. Your resume plays an important role when it comes to grabbing a job.

Hence, how do you keep up with the changing job landscape to attract top positions and offers?

Here are the Top 5 Skills Every IT Resume Should Include.

1. Expertise in one programming language

In order to become a good programmer, you must have command of at least one programming language at the expertise level. Choose the language of interest and the one you are comfortable with, which is also high in demand and sort of low on supply, this will provide you with an edge over others.

2. Personal projects and online communities

The time spent on personal projects related to your professional career is the best way to show your passion for technology. Those projects, as well as your participation in various online communities, say more about your experience than any other project you’ve developed. Both of them are valuable features, so don’t be afraid to write all that work you’ve been doing in your free time!

3. Past Achievements

The goals you achieved in your previous professional experience help the reader to visualize your future potential. Your past achievements and previous wins tell more about your skill set than a degree. Show off your wins from previous projects and how you were able to achieve them in your resume.

4. Working Team

Being a part of a team, the role you play in it, or the skill to manage a team is a piece of remarkable information to add to a programmer's resume because it says a lot about you. Add details such as how many people were a part of every project you include in your resume and your responsibility within the team. It shows that you could be potentially a good leader who can lead a team of other developers to achieve organizational goals.

5. Personal Brand on social media

Social media tells a lot about a person than words on a resume do. Make sure your social media like your LinkedIn and Instagram is free from NSFW content. Share your wins, learnings, and thoughts about your field often. Share tips, tricks, and hacks to build a mini brand of yourself and mention those handles on your resume. The stronger your personal brand is on your social media, the more it will impress the readers!

These steps will help you in getting one step closer to landing your dream job! Best of luck!
