A resume is essential promotional material that aims to “sell” an invitation to an interview with you. How to make your advertising effective if you have no experience as a programmer behind your back? To embellish the merits and come up with non-existent projects? Probably not.
Let’s better look at this issue through the eyes of those companies that may be interested in you, and try to offer them what they are looking for.
Why Do IT Companies Hire Newcomers?
To understand the needs of IT companies, let’s see how they are guided when recruiting inexperienced specialists:
- There are many newcomers on the market. They do not need to be searched for and persuaded for a long time.
- You can immediately develop a specialist for your project. There is no need to retrain, which is sometimes very difficult.
- Beginners free the experienced specialists from the routine and allow them to work on strategically important tasks.
- Lack of experience often frees thinking from stereotypes and helps to see new options for solving problems.
- Newbie developers are aware of the latest trends, so they are eager to master new technologies and easily adapt to any changes.
With the right approach, in six months or a year, you can grow a strong specialist from a beginner, so there are many advantages to hiring newcomers.
Also, now you understand that your target audience has certain expectations from the candidates. And they need to be taken into account when writing a resume.
