Welcome to the third episode of “CIO Career Coach,” a video series I created with and, the video division of CIO’s parent company, IDG.

In episode one, we talked about how and when you should make the decision to put yourself on the job market. In episode two, we covered the ways to define and communicate your professional brand.

Now it’s time to develop your marketing collateral — that is, to develop a resume.  As someone who looks at hundreds of resumes a week, I have strong opinions on this topic. Whether you are a CIO, CTO, or a rising IT professional currently at the manager, director or vice president level, the six tips in the above video will help you write a great resume.
