Ever wonder what IT companies look for when they are hiring people, especially in India? We have a list for you!
Every employer looks for finding potential candidates for tech companies, employers take their hiring process very seriously to hire talent not a liability. Every organization is adding technical recruits and technically sound HR experts to identify and secure candidates from hundreds of resumes or applicants.
Your resume is your passport to the coveted tech job. It is a sales proposition which highlights your experiences, qualifications, core skills, and capabilities. How you present yourself through your resume as well as physically is crucial to encourage IT employers to hire you.
When applying for an IT job, it will always help if you know what your employers are looking for.
Depending on the type of job that you are applying for, employers will expect you to come with a broad range of product knowledge and experience.
They prefer not to hire employees in whom they would have to invest time and other resources in training. Highlight your expertise in industry-standard hardware and software such as McAfee, Cisco, Microsoft, LinkSys, NetGear, etc.
Whether you are applying for an IT Management job or any other job for that matter, offer your expertise in systems integration.
With most companies employing more than one software application, there are higher risks of downtime due to conflicts in the system. It is important that you can help your employer seamlessly install, upgrade, add, and remove applications on a consistent basis.
If you are targeting a senior-level position, the core focus should be on management skills such as IT projects, team management, process redesign, change management, and service delivery.
Getting hired in the IT industry is not easy, we should be fully prepared in terms of our professional documents such as Resume and Cover Letter.
When hiring IT professionals, employers are not only looking at your ability to meet their current demands, but also your capability to handle their future needs as and when they expand.
This way, they intend to ensure technical continuity and save on monies with respect to hiring and training new IT professionals in the future.
Even though you may not necessarily put in an 80-hour work week, employers may expect you to be available for support at any time of the day or night in case of technical glitches.
The employer as well as you may hope that one would not require your services in the wee hours of the morning, you should be exhibited that you are flexible and easily available, nonetheless.
In addition to being well-trained yourself, IT employers love it if you are able to show enthusiasm towards training your colleagues or subordinates.
Whether you are in charge of upgrading existing systems or installing new ones, you should also be in the position to train your colleagues in effectively using the systems you put in place.
Here are some of the top qualities that employers look for in job candidates:
Employers typically look for candidates who possess a combination of technical skills, relevant experience, and personal qualities that make them a good fit for the job and the company culture.
Finally, to be able to highlight these skills effectively, it is important that you are able to write an impressive resume. A survey suggests that about 80% of the candidates are rejected based on a poorly written cover letter or resume.
Your resume must come with a summary statement, a well-highlighted set of skills, some personal statistics and most importantly accurate information about your experiences.
You can also consider getting your resume written professionally to make sure you attract the best employers in the business.

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
