How to prepare to complete a job application and pass a skills test for IT Computer Support Job. (Project 2)
In a competitive field like IT, there are many key factors that can determine whether you get the job you’re applying for or not. Having both a well written resume and cover letter is very important to the employment process, but it doesn’t just end there. Employers are constantly looking for ways to make the applicant screening process more efficient. Some resumes are filled with inaccuracies, over exaggerations, and flat out lies, but for the employer that’s where applications and skills test come in. Over the course of this document I will be giving a few tips on what to expect when filling out job applications and taking skill/aptitude tests. Unlike a resume where applicants provide information about their own background, skills, and work history, a job application is designed by the employer to gain the exact information they need when going through the hiring process. Applications are also used as a tool to compare applicants by having them answer the same questions and then using their answers to determine who fits the position best. When filling out a job application be sure to read it carefully and answer truthfully, but at the same time try to avoid negatives. For example, when asked about the last position you held never say you were fired. Even if you were, there are better ways to word these kind of things without providing incorrect information. Phrases like “job ended” or “seeking a better fit” are better alternatives to use as they don’t have the same negative connotations as words like fired or terminated. This next tip may seem really obvious but it’s...

One of the most important steps you can take towards launching your new career in IT is, without a doubt, drafting an effective resume and cover letter. With so many candidates all vying for the same position, it is becoming increasingly important to make sure that your resume stands out from the rest. But how do you go about doing that? What makes one resume more effective than another? These are important questions to consider. So, let’s find out! The first part of the process is discerning what information is relevant to your job experience and what can be excluded. You want to make sure that the version of yourself that you are presenting to your prospective employer reflects the experience and values that they are looking for in their new IT support specialist. Knowledge of hardware, software, and PC repair is very important to include. You will also want to make reference to any certifications you may hold. You also want to make sure that your resume isn’t too long. Three page resumes, while not completely gone, are increasingly rare. Try to keep it to, at most, two pages. The internet aside, something I’ve found to be very helpful in writing resumes is the help of a good book. There are, of course, many books available on the topic but the book that I have gone back to time and time again has been The Elements of Resume Style by Scott Bennett. It’s a quick read and Bennett’s style is as comprehensive as you’re going to find. Given, this book doesn’t give tips specific to a career in...
