Employers generally like to see that security job candidates have completed a 4-year degree of some sort. If you started on a college education but for some reason have not completed a degree, consider placing this information at the bottom of your resume so the reader can focus on your professional accomplishments rather than your lack of college degree.

Jeff Snyder, the President of SecurityRecruiter.com, a search firm highly specialized in information security recruiting, says that security professionals who want to be at the right place at the right time from a career growth perspective should think about the quality of their security resume. 

When actively searching for a new security job, it is critically important to present a resume that will immediately capture the reader’s attention. The recruiter or human resources representative who typically receives your resume before it lands on a hiring manager’s desk will seldom read your resume. Instead, the amount of data that crosses their eyes in the course of a day causes these recipients to scan resumes. 

Can your resume be quickly scanned? Will the reader’s first glance entice them to want to actually go back to read your entire resume?

Follow these steps the next time you create or update your resume and you’ll increase your odds of seeing your resume float to the top of the stack.
