Things to Consider when creating a resume and cover letter

One of the hardest things about applying for a job is creating a resume cover letter and a cover letter. When creating a resume, you want to put in your objectives as the first section of your resume. The reason why objectives are important for employers is because what are the benefits of hiring you and what you’re going to be bringing into the company. Try adding in past experiences would make the resume look good. One way in making your resume look good is include the name of the company within the objective statement. According to livecareer.com there are some examples that you can use. Examples like “Looking to utilize skills in customer service and working with computers as a Technical Support Specialist for ABC company.” Another example is “Seeking employment as a Technical Support Specialist with ABC company to use extensive background in answering inquiries about computer systems and developing training manuals for fellow employees.” These are good examples for those going into the IT field. You want to have your objective straight to the point. When writing a resume, it’s important to list your education and past experiences, I believe that is important because half of the time people don’t have much knowledge about computers or as not as tech savvy as other people. I think one of the best ways that people can do when creating a resume to apply for an IT job is list the skills that they have. Most of the time you will be dealing with hardware/software issues and would need to have the knowledge to troubleshoot. Other times you will...

How to create LinkedIn profile for IT Computer Support Job

LinkedIn can be very exciting and fun to fill out, so make sure you take an effort to attempt it. Some people recommend placing your profile picture first, but if you do not have a good one, I would consider filling out some of the basic information first. It’s a great way to get to know yourself and others. You can network with friends and experts, find great ways to land that career you are looking for, or even get great material to expand on your IT knowledge. Remember to have fun with it, be professional, and remember that you can always come back to it and edit things. If you are unsure what to write, consider skipping a section and work on the ones that you are confident filling out. For starter, making a headline is simple as it may only include a few words. I used to try to make this sound fancy, but I’ve learned that mastering the basics is key in IT. This also shows honesty which is important. Writing something like computer expert, or network engineer when you don’t have years of experience or are new to the field will not help much with landing the job you need or are qualified to get started. I currently use my exact job title at my job, since the company is well-known, I also use the company name in my headline. Another one I like is “Computer Support Specialist,” which is the most common term I have heard used in school. This will get you with the pack of candidates that are marketing themselves to recruiters...

How to Prepare for Job Application, Skills Test in IT Computer Support

Part of the application process you might encounter when hunting for an IT Support position is a skills test. This skills test can take many forms. The company you’re applying at could have an in-house assessment or use a service. There’s a good chance that the test might just be the interviewer asking a few basic IT support-related questions, like a verbal quiz. On the other side of the skills test coin is the personality test. This personality test is less of a test and more of a compatibility check. What you encounter in the job hunt could change from company to company. Personality Tests This can be used by a hiring manager to understand how an applicant might fit into the work environment or relate to customers. This is not a pass or fail type of test. A long list of qualified applicants can be narrowed down quickly with a personality test. Desirable personality traits could differ depending on the team, clients, or company culture. The best thing to do with a test like this is just to expect it. These things can come in any of several flavors or styles. Some are true/false and some are multiple choice. The most desirable traits in IT support will be emotional intelligence and empathy. Skill Test Examples Typing speed test: This basic test could come up in a job interview or a job application process. You should be concerned if you’re not up around 35-40 words per minute. You can find several free websites with interactive tools to help with this. Take a couple tests for yourself at home. One...
