Disaster Recovery Architect Resume

A disaster recovery architect resume projects the candidate's proficiency in the development of technological systems that aid the smooth functioning of business processes. It shows your ability to keep the business functioning in the midst of potential disruptions, while expressing your career related interests and goals, specific to the job profile that you are seeking. The resume starts with a career objective, immediately following your contact details, which speaks of your aspirations as an IT professional, and your willingness to become an active part of an ongoing technical advancement. It is absolutely necessary that you stay in tune with the employer's needs, throughout the resume. It is therefore advised that you visit the company website or talk to on of its recruiters to get to know their vision. You need to determine their expectations before you can start marketing your abilities. You need to know what to sell, promoting random qualities will not fetch you the opportunity of an interview.

Customize you resume

Including a profile summary that exhibits your professional background, highlighting all the fundamental roles that you have played during your previous employments. This is one idea of customization. Here, the previous job descriptions are skipped, so as to keep the resume very specific to the job profile that you are applying for. You need to summarize your work experience into 6-8 bulleted points, taking care to avoid all general or commonplace facts and figures. Also, make sure that you stay connected to the job specifications while doing so. You may club together two or more points to present as one bullet point. This way, you can ensure that you cover all essential activities that you have been involved in, with brevity and precision.

Showcase your abilities

Once you have summarized your profile, include 5-6 points, zooming in on your qualities and capabilities as a skilled solutions architect and a knowledgeable candidate. The quality of the information that you project here will greatly influence the reader's decision, as well as his judgment as to whether you are a desirable candidate and a valuable asset to the company. Do remember that you must include only those competencies that you have not mentioned in the profile summary. Avoid repetitive information. Similarly, keep all the information thoroughly organized, to facilitate a smooth and uniform flow.

In the disaster recovery architect resume sample given below, you'll notice that the employment history and academic section only bears the basic details. There is no need to elaborate here, if you have covered all important points in the profile summary. However, if you are left with further details, specific to a particular employment of the past, then you may certainly include the information, along with the employment details, highlighting them using bullets for better visibility. Similarly, you need not get into the course details of your study programs, unless you're a recently graduated student.
