Earlier this year, we surveyed Eagle’s recruiters to learn what makes the best resume for an IT contractor. We summarized the results in four posts, including:
- The Top 5 Things Recruiters Hate About Your Resume
- How to Get Your Resume Noticed
- Here’s What Every Independent Contractor Needs to Have in Their Resume
- How to Format Your Resume When You’re an Independent Contractor
We also published a video series over the summer months that provides best practices for formatting your resume in Microsoft Word.
The final piece is the completed version – what should your resume look like after you’ve applied all of the tips and tricks we shared over the past months? Below is an image of a sample resume that combines everything discussed in the posts above. A contractor’s resume will be longer and contain more experience (and hopefully real words), but you can use this to get a better visual of what recruiters want to see.
Compare it to your resume today. Could you make some revisions? Do you disagree with any pieces of this sample resume? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
