QUESTION: I’m applying for computer technology jobs. What do I need to know to write an effective resume?
The stereotype of technical workers as quiet and task-oriented isn’t used in hiring. Showcasing soft skills are vital in addition to the required hard skills. Use your DISCstyles Report to identify your innate interpersonal strengths, to understand “people-awareness,” “emotional intelligence,” and “diversity.” Becoming “DISC-literate” is easy as a first step for your effective résumé.
Choose a job posting that matches your goal. Note the preferred and required technology skills listed. Include hardware, software, mobile devices, apps, methodologies, tables, and tools. Categorize and create a dedicated Technical Skills section and place in the top third of your resume. If you are missing too many skills, this may not be the job for you.
