Application Security Architect Resume

An application security architect resume is designed to bring into light the candidate's efficiency in providing IT security design inputs, while showcasing his experience in developmental processes. It acts as a strong medium of communication between the job-seeker and the employer; it's a great tool for marketing your profile. It starts with the career objective, stating your interests, in conjunction with the employer's needs - the purpose of your application, but employer-centered. Observe the sample below, and study the sentence formation. Be brief, but don't miss out on any essential information.

Following the objective, you'll see a section showcasing the technical skills and strengths. This information along with the career objective should be framed carefully, for if the reader feels that it's not worth the read, he'll switch to the next application in queue. Also, your resume should not only be restricted to drawing the attention of the reader, but also sustaining his interest in your application. Be as specific as you can here, excluding all commonplace or general information.

The employment section comprises of the fundamentals of your professional experience, such as the name and location of the employer, designation, and employment duration. It also covers the significant duties and responsibilities executed within the previous employments, in about 4-5 points. Educational details need to be mentioned in brief, only stating the essential details, as shown in the sample below. Now, if you wish to include the details of any achievements, then you may do so in a separate section, or include the information in other sections, specific to an employer or an academic program.

Include an efficient covering letter

Your job application comprises of two pieces of documents, namely the resume and a cover letter. While your resume is the summed up profile that you wish to project, you are also required to design a cover letter that facilitates a personal interaction with the recruiter. You may also call it as "a letter to my recruiter", as it is a personal expression of your interest for the job, where you have the chance to show your willingness to become a part of their team. While it highlights the most significant elements of your professional background, your cover letter should not be a mere summary of your resume. It is a highly effective marketing tool, and you need to draft one very carefully, so as to deliver the desired outcome. In fact, it's the cover letter that a recruiter usually reads first, and if he is satisfied with the read, he'll review the resume. And this is one major reason why it is important to get in touch with the employer at least once and briefly discuss your interests and their expectations. This will help forming a clear image of the information that you are to project.
