An IT Training CV?


What is a 'winning' CV format for an IT trainer? Any top tips?

  1. CV
    I would go for a skills based CV. This highlights the areas you can train and your skills as a trainer, rather than where you have worked. Employers can then see at a glance if you have the skills/knowledge/experience they require.

  2. CV
    I have a great template for a CV that is suitable for anyone who wants to focus on their skills.
    Please feel free to get in contact and I will happily send you a copy. This goes for anyone else who is reading this and interested!

  3. IT cv
    Peter – I don’t think there is an ideal cv format.

    But as I sit on the Board of several software companies constantly looking for good people, as well as several others who find their IT function hard to staff, I’d want to see evidence of:
    – specific technical skills, experience and awareness, and how gained
    – real achievements
    – team-playing skills (not common?)
    – practical management skills
    – emotional maturity / interpersonal skills and awareness (also rare?)
    – ‘customer’ / commercial orientation
    – reasons for leaving.

    These should identify the key qualities I find truly differentiate the stars!

    Good luck!


  4. Many thanks
    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I know that your time and input is precious. I’ll drop a wee note to you on an individual basis at the end of this week.

    All the very best,
