Earlier this year, we surveyed Eagle’s recruiters to learn what makes the best resume for an IT contractor. We summarized the results in four posts, including:
We also published a video series over the summer months that provides best practices for formatting your resume in Microsoft Word.
The final piece is the completed version – what should your resume look like after you’ve applied all of the tips and tricks we shared over the past months? Below is an image of a sample resume that combines everything discussed in the posts above. A contractor’s resume will be longer and contain more experience (and hopefully real words), but you can use this to get a better visual of what recruiters want to see.
Compare it to your resume today. Could you make some revisions? Do you disagree with any pieces of this sample resume?
