IT Careers: The Pros and Cons of Remote Work

IT Careers are evolving rapidly. For the first time in a decade, I'm hearing about "talent wars." And - from what I'm hearing from my own resume and coaching clients - the demand for IT talent is continuing to increase.

As a CIO, Do You Need to be Mr. Nice Guy?

As I was exploring the news on CIOs this Monday morning, I came upon this interesting article from Forbes, "The Evolving Role of the CIO: An interview with Geoffrey Moore [Part 2/2]."

I think that's an excellent way to define the (seemingly) incompatible types of leadership that a CIO needs to deliver.

Skill Acquired Through Long Practice - The Gong Fu of IT Resume Writing

CIO Resumes - Are You Ready for the Next Step to COO or CEO?

IT Resume Writers see a number of interesting - and important - trends in the technology and employment marketplace.

Many of those trends are a cause of significant concern. Predictions of shrinking IT hiring, a far more competitive employment marketplace, and the reduction in the number of IT Managers are allissues for many of my clients.

General Practitioner or Surgeon? Does your Career Need an IT Resume Specialist?

IT Resume Writers are a rare breed in the resume writing industry.

Most resume writers are generalists; they write a very wide range of projects, from entry level to executive, and from sales or marketing to administrative. Many of those resume writers are very skilled, and produce strong resumes, cover letters. Many of the those resume writers, quite frankly, are less skillful, and tend to produce look alike, read alike documents.
