The key to a well-written IT Project Manager CV is to keep it simple and relevant. And the best way to do that is to focus on your achievements.
Here is how that can be done:
- Set the scene: what were the objectives of the project? What was the project scale?
- Explain your involvement: What was your role in the team? What were your responsibilities in the team?
- Highlight your success: What did the project achieve? What did you achieve?
Common mistakes we see in IT Project Manager CVs are:
- Too long.
- Hard to read/navigate.
- Begs the question, “so, how successful was the project?”
In order to avoid these pitfalls, try the following tips:
- Have the courage to omit projects that are irrelevant to the job you are applying for. Try to keep it between 2-4 pages (in normal-sized font!), depending on your experience.
- Keep the format simple. We find that plain text with bullet points, in a simple font like Times New Roman or Arial brings the best and quickest response from hiring managers.
- For the projects you do write about, focus on quantifiable achievements. There is no need to explain the finer details so long as the hiring manager knows you helped the company make a 10% cost saving as a result of your project. If your achievements stand out, you can rest assured they will be calling you in for an interview to find out how you did it!
