Confronted with the task of composing your technical resume? Well, a technical resume can be quite challenging at times. The key to writing a technical resume, for example that of a java developer is to highlight the technical skills and strengths more than professional experience.

It is advisable to enlist your technical specialties using modern, technical terms, right after the summary. This not only makes your resume more objective and search engine friendly, but also provides enough spice for the employer to continue reading. Following is one example of a resume for the position of Java Developer.
