Ensure Your Resume Doesn’t Get Thrown In The Trash

Filed Under 3 Days To Building A Perfect Resume


Last week, I got a lot of great feedback and questions over the post – ‘Why New Developers Should Consider Contracting’. One of these emails stuck out of the rest, and was asking the question of actually how to move out of the consulting business.

Right after my undergraduate degree, I went to work for a consulting firm. I have gained tons of experience and have learned a ton about different architectures, organizations, and people. It truly has been a great experience.

In the past few months, I have arrived at a point where I am considering a career move that will allow me to move away from the demanding hours and stress that comes with consulting. Do you have any thoughts on how to make the move from the consulting world to a full time position?

Regardless of experience and job type, I do have some opinions and techniques that can greatly improve your chances of landing that dream job. Now don’t get me wrong, interviewing well is important, but Step #1 is ensuring your resume doesn’t get thrown in the trash.

This week, I will be doing a 3 part series called – 3 Days To Building A Perfect Resume. If you aren’t already be sure to subscribe via RSS or subscribe via email. I am handing out trade secrets here, and you won’t want to miss a single one…

    Was just wondering if you could recommend an acceptable resume [format] for an independent consultant? A web site to refer to or examples to point us to? Its definitely going to be a bit different than that of a captive-employee. Questions such as “should we name the companies we’ve got as clients, or just refer to the work done for clients instead” come to mind.
