The Technical Pursuits Entry-Level IT Resume Template is designed for early-career and entry-level IT professionals who are searching for work in a technology-related profession.
It can be challenging to know how to create an entry-level IT resume if you have little work experience. Just remember that it doesn’t matter where you developed your IT skills and expertise. While employment experience is great, most entry-level IT professionals don’t have IT-related work experience. So, what can an early-career professional include on their entry-level IT resume template?
Have you used your IT skills in a volunteer job or in an internship? Include them. Maybe you have taken IT courses, either as part of a degree or individually. These count. Perhaps you put your IT skills to work on a big academic project. This counts too.
Keywords are often especially important in an IT resume, so the more you can include, the better. Just be scrupulously honest. Don’t state you have skills if you do not. However, do read job announcements for positions of interest to you and note the qualifications the employers indicate they are seeking. These are important keywords and the more ways you can find to honestly mention these keywords in your resume, the better.
The Technical Pursuits IT Entry Resume Template has been designed to provide ample room for technology keywords, but in a format that is both friendly for the human reader as well as for applicant tracking systems (ATS).
The dark teal coloring of Technical Pursuits Entry adds to its eye appeal, but you can make it your own and customize the colors easily, to match your personal brand. The entire Technical Pursuits Entry Collection takes on a whole new “look and feels” when you change the colors. Just remember to change to an identical color scheme on all the documents in the Collection, to give all your career marketing documents a cohesive, branded look.
Available separately, the Technical Pursuits biography template, references template, and letterhead template are designed to coordinate with our Technical Pursuits Resume template. See all templates in the collection:
