IT support is a field that is growing by leaps and bounds. In order to keep up with the demand for IT career support specialist I have tried to look at an innovative approach to making myself a marketable commodity in this ever-growing market. The first objective that I have set for myself is to identify market needs, the needs of the community and all other opportunities that present themselves. The first and most identifiable portal to identifying market needs is the MATC IT support webpage. This page presents a dynamic and ever-changing glimpse of how the MATC IT community is working vigilantly to stay abreast of market needs. I have a bit of a dilemma in terms of what my goals are in IT support as opposed to a more traditional response to the ever-changing job market. After reviewing a plethora of information available and what I have learned in school, the job market is changing especially in the IT support field looking for lifetime employment is not a truly progressive approach to the ever-changing job market. Lifetime employability though should be my objective. After listening to the professor speak, on the first day of class how I perceived what I heard is that there is a demand for jobs in a new paradigm. This new paradigm is that there is a time sensitive, or contract approach to fulfilling the needs of employers in the IT field. So if there is a great amount of employment opportunities available in the (contract) of services needed, I have determined that becoming a contractor of these needed services is the best...

Let’s begin this paper by looking at one of the most important aspects of resume writing, the recruiter. The recruiter is arguably one of, if not the most important parts of resume writing. The job market of today is exceedingly competitive. The job market finds itself in this state of bombardment because of new forms of technology to submit your interests. Recruiters can, at times, receive up dozens if not hundreds of different applications. This makes the job market a very harsh environment. It also means the best way to eliminate the large amount of resumes you get is to simply begin discarding the less attractive applications. It should also be known that a sizable human-resources department will often use applicant tracking systems. An applicant tracking system is a form of software that will automatically sift through applications for keywords. If your application doesn’t meet the interests of the tracking system, it will be automatically discarded.

Any resumes that make it to this point will be glanced at by the recruiter and read rather quickly. The resume you create may be reviewed in less than a few seconds. The first thing you should know is that your resume should be engineered relative to the career you’re interested in attaining. You can do this most effectively by taking your time to appreciate the job description. Try and add key words pertaining to what the employer might be...
