How to Improve Your Technical Resume
We are proud to present a FORTE Knowledge original video, “How to Improve Your Technical Resume”. This is part of our series of short educational videos aimed at current and future IT professionals who want to further their knowledge and gain a competitive edge in the job marketplace. This lesson on improving your technical resume is taught by FORTE Group’s knowledgeable and experienced Senior Technology Recruiter, Anastacia Morhayeva.
This video contains many informative tidbits for those who are pursuing a new career. We’ve found that it’s not always the person who’s best at the job that gets the position; rather, it’s the person who understands and utilizes the correct strategies to market themselves effectively that gets the job. But, be aware that an impressive resume isn’t the only thing that will help get you the job. One of the biggest mistakes you can make during your job search is being unprepared for your interview. Interviewing is a skill. And, as with most skills, preparation and practice are vital to achieving success. Preparation, poise, and good timing can transform you into a stand-out applicant.
If you are interested in improving your interviewing skills, join us at our “Interview Preparation Workshop” on Tuesday, June 26th from 6-9pm. With the collaboration of Dabble.co, FORTE Knowledge is hosting a workshop designed to help you address the following interview-related topics:
• Accurately predicting what will be asked
• Making a confident, professional impression
• Understanding how your body language influences the decision making process
• Building rapport quickly and easily
• Controlling the interview so that you are able to communicate your messages effectively
• Answering the difficult questions
• Presenting the best version of yourself during the interview
• Overcoming fears
We will help you walk away recharged, prepared to take on the interview process, and filled with a sense of accomplishment about your skill-set and abilities. And remember ... don't be second best because only one person gets the job.
