First things first – do you know what a chronological resume is? Well, in simplest terms, it is a resume type wherein your work history is listed in chronological order. This means that you list the most recent position or your current job role in the resume first.
If you’re an IT engineer looking for a job then you’ve landed on the right page. As per a recent survey, there is a shortage of over 182,000 skilled IT engineers in Canada and still businesses are not able to find the right talent to fill those vacant position. In such a job market, staffing agencies specializing in IT recruitment go along way in helping both candidates and employers.
Congratulations! You got a call for a first round interview. This means your resume was well-drafted and you had optimized it for applicant tracking system too.
