“My project was canceled”, “my company is in layoff”, “I was forced to take holidays” – hearing this is becoming more and more common nowadays right? In times of crisis, it’s important that you expect the best, but are prepared for the worst scenario. It’s essential that you have your CV updated and ready to share in case you want to grab a better opportunity at any time if needed. This said, we have developed a free optimized Europass template for the IT industry, that can be yours in minutes.
Tihs Europass CV template was boosted with three sections which we consider determinant to catch the eyes of the IT recruiter:
1. A highlight of your technology experiences at the beginning
In the IT industry, every recruitment process is around technologies and framework experience. Job descriptions include a list of technologies that companies are interested in so that’s exactly what you should highlight in your CV.
2. List of the stack of technologies in each of your professional experience
Listing all the technologies you have been working with can be a determinant factor to get a job and also reassures the recruiter of your skills. Sometimes, the use of a rare technology can get you an interview.
3. Auto-evaluation table of your skills
By doing this, you are making the recruiters’ life easier – and yours also, since your skillset will easily be identified. By describing the time of experience with each technology, hopefully, you will get their attention immediately. Although, we recommend this especially for senior IT professionals with wider experience.
Bonus tip: Add a Summary at the top of your CV to immediately catch the eyes of recruiters!
Soft-skills can play an important role in getting you an interview. Try to introduce yourself in a brief paragraph, giving your profile a personal touch and the change to engage more with the recruiter – this will definitely help them to identify you as a good match or not with the job description.
