IT Resumes Writers see a number of critical patterns that can be easily missed - both by IT professionals seeking a new opportunity, and by hiring authorities primarily focused on filling critical positions.

Given the highly specialized nature of my work - and the large number of often unsatisfactory IT resumes that cross my desk, I'm in a unique position to notice those patterns. And it's my responsibility to my clients to make them aware of the bad news that may be keeping the phone from ringing.

One of the most common - and most potentially damaging - patterns that I see in my practice is the all too common tendency for IT resumes to make job seekers - candidates, in the parlance of recruiters - appear to be at a significantly lower career level than they actually are.

As one of the leading IT resume writers in the careers industry, I see this issue almost every day.
