CIO Resume Makeover

Chief Information Officer - An Ever Expanding Set of Responsibilities

C-Level Job DescriptionsIT leaders seeking executive-level roles face a common resume conundrum: how to convey their extensive experience and skills in a compact way that has impact.

CIOs want to make sure that they are sharing the right amount of information.  Many feel their resume is a bit long at 3 pages. Typically it can be boring, not memorable, and could use some help on visual design.

Some best practices are:

  • Be Brief
  • Be Clear and Organized
  • Focus on Business Value
  • Convey Transformational Leadership Capabilities
  • Show Career Progression
  • Show Peronal Qualities

IT Hiring Picks Up - Talent Harder to find

Human Resources for IT - Talent harder to find

A major research firm has just published our forecast for US tech employment and compensation (“2019 US Tech Talent Market Outlook”). It has some foreboding news for CIOs and for tech vendors: Tech talent will be harder to find and more expensive over the next two years.

At the same time they found that  the supply of tech workers has largely kept up with demand. But the current data available for 2018 suggests that wage growth is starting to accelerate. This supports the finding in the latest IT Salary Survey from Janco Associates, Inc.

This acceleration poses a special threat to CIOs, who could find themselves paying premiums for certain tech roles in high demand.

States with High Unemployment Rates

Those two regions have been in the economic doldrums for over one year. Historic data does not lie.  Those are both job markets to avoid.

Positions in highest demand are associated with e-commerce, application development security, big data, distributed/mobile system project management, and quality control.

Is Cloud Killing some IT Jobs

Communication and System Admin IT Jobs Lost as Movement to Cloud Continues

IT shares a number of characteristics with manufacturing - that mean cloud adoption will automate some IT jobs out of existence. The jobs at greatest risk are in telecommunications and system administraton.

Automation takes people out of the repetitive and routine tasks. That in turn reduces both labor costs and the variability in the results.  That in turn eliminates overhead, errors, and downtime. As cloud use increases and datacenters shrink, the staff that builds, maintains, and troubleshoots the datacenter network, servers, and applications aren’t needed. Thus fewer people are needed to manage workloads, security, and vendor contracts.

Historic IT Job Market Size

It is clear from the table above the number of Telecommunications jobs in 2000 has been reduced by 50% over the past 18 years.  That trend continues.
