So you don’t have experience in IT yet and you want to land an IT job. A classic resume won’t do you any favors. The classic chronological resume is great for some seasoned professional who has been in the industry for years.

If you’re fresh out of class or still in the thick of it, your chronological resume might not stand out much. What you need is the functional resume. This functional resume style will help you to stand out and be a fresh face that a hiring manager might need to see. The functional resume focuses on the less substantial things like education, soft skills, and ambition. You still want to add some work experience to the functional resume, if you have it. Hiring managers like to know if, and when you’ve been working. Gaps in employment could furrow brows even after your shiny new objective section just blew their hiring socks off. Functional Resume To-Do List Gather your key information – Keep your work experience dates and addresses in a separate file. Backup this file to a few different drives. You need to have accurate records of your work experience, and you’ll reference them often. You’ll rest easy knowing you have this tedious stuff saved somewhere. Gather your key words – Flip through your textbooks and copy down plenty of industry keywords. These will be needed to have your glistening, pristine functional resume picked up by all...

You must show how to be patient in your resume with customers. because there will be clients that might not understand what is going on and they need you to slow it down or just break it down and to terms, the customer can understand so that the customer can have a better understanding to resolve the computer issues. You must also have good listening skills incorporated into your resume to be a computer support specialist so that you can understand the problems that the customer is illustrating to you and know when to ask the correct questions to have an understanding to resolving the computer issues. Thirdly an essential thing to have incorporated in the resume is the ability to show how to problem solve issues because an IT support worker must identify both very easy and complex computer problems which comes to the IT worker based on analyzing the issues and solving the issues.
