Resume building for a technical position is somewhat more complex than building one for a non technical position. For one thing, you don’t know whether the person reviewing your resume will be technical or not. To play it safe, it’s best not to include too much technological jargon in your resume and keep the language simple, so that any non technical HR manager or recruiter can comprehend it.
Another key in this regard lies in language used by the advertisement. Bring your tone and use of technical terms in line with what the employer has used in the vacancy announcement. This will not only ensure that your resume will be understood but will also enable the employers to quickly relate your profile to the vacancy.
