Some Thoughts About Resumes for Tech Jobs

While I enjoy the heck out of talking to all of you on this blog, I actually earn my living as an organizational consultant who specializes in business processes. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I decided to write this blog in the first place – to help clue you in to what goes on behind the scenes.

And since most of my recent experience has been working with IT folks, I figure it’s high time I gave job seekers a little firsthand look at what might get your tech resume a second look.  For my take on things that might help you get past screeners like me, please visit my guest post for Susan Ireland’s Job Lounge:
