In today's competitive tech job market, a strong resume is essential for landing your dream role. But with so many applicants vying for the same positions, it can be tough to make your resume stand out. 

That's where Dice and TopResume, the world's largest resume writing service, can help. We have partnered to offer tech professionals free resume evaluations... and so far, more than 16,000 tech professionals have taken advantage of the partnership. 

Why is a Strong Resume Important? 

A well-crafted resume is your chance to get noticed by recruiters and hiring managers. Many companies use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to scan resumes, and if you aren’t optimizing yours with proper formatting, a concise overview of your skills and experience, or tailored languages to the job you’re applying for, you may never make it to a first interview with a recruiter.  

How to Get a Free Resume Review 

TopResume's service is a valuable resource for tech professionals who want to improve their job prospects. Here's how to take advantage of it: 

  • Create or log in to your Dice profile. 

  • Upload your resume – you will see a prompt to receive a free review. 

  • Check your email for your TopResume feedback. 

What Kind of Resume Feedback can you Expect? 

TopResume's resume experts will provide you with feedback on a number of areas, including formatting and layout, content and keywords, and tailoring with keywords for specific jobs. Some of the most common opportunity areas for tech professionals are: 

  • Length: Studies have found that recruiters prefer two-page resumes over any other length. Tech professionals with an extensive history should focus on the most recent 10–15 years and mention earlier experience in a Career Note or abbreviated "Earlier Work Experience" section

  • Showing impact: Many tech professionals list their tech skills and the tasks they've completed without tying them back to business or project goals. It is important for job seekers to demonstrate how their work has positively impacted their department, business unit or company. 

  • Highlighting soft skills: Tech professionals are often so focused on listing all their technical abilities that they forget to weave in proof of their soft skills such as collaboration, leadership and communication.
