When an award-winning IT professional's résumé was just a running list of the jobs he'd held, the challenge was how to make his most impressive skills stand out

It's the marketing tool for your personal brand and the first impression that hiring managers, recruiters and HR reps get of you. Suffice to say, getting it right is paramount to successfully compete against the horde of IT professionals out there.

Misspellings, unexplained employment gaps or a simple list of past positions and responsibilities are all potential red flags that can make the decision-makers push your résumé into the negative pile or make it go unnoticed completely.
