  • At the C-level, your technical and management skills, even as a CTO or a CIO, are not the end of the story. These C-level positions supply a critical link with other, less technically savvy areas of management. Your communication and more general business and personnel skills need to be well documented in your CV.

  • Most organisations expect their technical staff to maintain existing systems rather than innovate with new systems. In addition, the ability to liaise with non-technical staff is a given, thus requiring IT personnel to be able to explain very complex systems in fairly simple terms. Does your CV portray you as having these liaison skills? It needs to.

  • For an IT Manager or similar, it is vital that your CV demonstrates an ability to manage in a broader business sense. In other words, how have the IT roles you have played in the past made your company a better, more profitable or more successful service-providing enterprise. The central role played by IT systems in the current era, has moved IT from the periphery to the centre of corporate life. Therefore as an IT manager, you need to be much more than merely skilled in IT.

A more complete CV is absolutely crucial on this rung of the managerial ladder. Attention to detail is vital, as is clear and concise expression and a level of obvious professionalism in terms of the presentation of your CV. ALL the following categories must be fulfilled:

  • Provide your present/ most recent position description and explain the skills demanded by the position.
  • It is especially important to make mention of skills such as leadership, financial management, regulations and relations, personnel management and strategic intelligence.
  • List other companies you have worked for, the dates you worked there and describe what you did for the company.
  • Draw particular attention to those qualities and experiences which recommend you as a genuine candidate for an executive position.
  • At the executive level, skills should to be described in paragraph form, though you can use bullet points when listing achievements.
