No Prima Donnas, Please: Make-Or-Break Traits To Getting Hired


Do You Have The Skills Recruiters Want?

With the competition to find top IT talent on the rise, the need to make your resume stand out has never been greater. According to the experts at VAR Staffing, a Richardson, Texas-based VAR consultant agency that specializes in IT channel staffing and recruitment, the best way to do so is to go beyond your technical skills and highlight additional skill sets.

"Any competent employer will be able to determine you don't know the technology in five minutes. With engineering, you've either got it or you don't. So, it's about moving beyond that, the soft skills," said Mark Bier, founding principal. "The VARs, the solution providers themselves, not all of them are large public companies, some of them are small integrators that aren't a big conglomerate. There's so much competition between them, and what separates them is the people who are actually out there designing and implementing the solutions."

With that in mind, here's a look at the top job skills that employers want to see on your IT resume.
