Software Development CV

Software development is a popular field in IT that covers a wide range of professional skills. Software development includes software engineers, software testers, embedded software developers and programmers amongst others. A well thought out and prepared software development resume is crucial in securing an interview in all these sectors.

A software development CV should not only reflect the relevant educational background and professional experience, it should also show personal skills and attributes the company would be interested in e.g. a flexible attitude, innovation, the ability to work well even under pressure and so on. Thorough research about the company should therefore be carried out before preparing the software development CV.
