Your Guide to Writing a SharePoint Developer Resume

Start with a clear summary

Modern resumes begin with a clear summary of who you are, what you are looking for, and why you are the best person for the job. This is your one shot because very often, hiring managers who are swamped in resumes will not even commence with the rest of your resume if they are not impressed with this brief paragraph (or two) at the very top of your resume.

Clearly present your experience

You may have a lot of experience, you may not, but what is important here is that you give pride of place to the experience that really counts towards the position you are applying for. If you are a recent graduate, your academic experience is obviously stronger than your professional experience, so highlight that.

Spell out your strengths immediately, and what you are looking for

As part of that initial summary, state your strengths and the role you are looking for, and ensure that you adapt this to every role you apply for. As well as skills, think about the relevant experience that makes you the best person for the job, and emphasize career achievements that have added value to the organizations you have worked for – anything that has contributed to the bottom line is best.

Emphasize qualifications and skills

From your formal educational qualifications to your experience working with different cataloging systems and so on, it is important that you highlight the qualifications and skills that are the most relevant to the role you are applying for. Place them at center stage, and format them clearly with the most relevant skill listed first.

Show your dedication to recent trends

The role of a Sharepoint developer has evolved with the introduction of new technology, so it is important to show that you are changing with those times, so any experience you have had with new technologies should be highlighted accordingly.

Utilize writing tools

If you are at all concerned about the presentation, layout, content and quality of writing of your resume, then fear not, because there are literally thousands of online tools which can assist you in everything from setting your resume out, to editing, checking for grammatical errors and then proofreading. Here are some of the best.

  • A Kick off with Resumention, a resume service which provides all the advice you need in one handy location.
  • MyWritingWay and LetsGoAndLearn are among the best online writing guides for helping put pen to paper.
  • Boomessays and Essay Roo are first-rate editing tools (as reviewed in AustralianReviewer) which help you emphasize your relevant skills and remove those unnecessary inclusions.
  • Then turn to Best Writing Services and  StateofWriting to help you generate great subjects, titles and subheadings which are essential to form the proper layout for your resume.
  • In terms of grammar correction, ViaWriting and WritingPopulist are highly efficient in spotting and helping to correct grammatical errors
  • The final step is proofreading everything that you have included on your resume: UKWritings and Academized, as mentioned in Essay Writing Services UK, are terrific options for this particular task.

Think carefully about your references

“Much consideration should be given to the references you include on your resume – the right options can add substantial weight. Think about your past roles and those which are most relevant to the role you are applying for, and then utilize the boss in that role to leverage your position,” says Paula Rayburn, a resume proofreader at AustralianHelp. References also reveal how you have maintained good relationships with all those you have worked with and for, so can really leave a good impression on any future employer.

Amend your resume for every job you apply for

One last, critical point. Once you have put together your perfect SharePoint developer resume, you must tweak it for every different job that you apply for. It is a huge mistake to believe that your resume is a fixed document: it should evolve with every different position you apply for, with the relevant experience being emphasized accordingly. No two jobs are entirely the same, so you must adapt your resume in line with the differences.
