The question that you still have is…
How should I write a DevOps resume?
We hope those resume examples got you inspired.
But to write a good DevOps resume, you need to take a few steps back.
You need to look from a recruiter's perspective on what they value the most in a resume.
You then have to focus on presenting your information in a way that it is easy for a recruiter to scan.
And then, your resume will be tweaked to reflect you as a person.
What do recruiters value the most in a resume
Most recruiters and tech leaders valued impact over everything else in a DevOps engineer resume.
Some value real impact so much that they exclusively filter “tricky pony” DevOps resumes and toss them in the bin.
And the way most hiring managers do that is by looking at the resume experience.
Skills and tooling familiarity are of secondary importance.
Overall, the resume has to scream culture, as DevOps is all about reflecting your knowledge and experience with DevOps practices and methodologies.
And note that most recruiters will use keywords to map relevance between who you are and what the role needs.
So, the right resume:

The header of your resume should primarily contain your name, job title, experience, contact, email, and location (not your full address).
It’s important that you make it look tidy and share only the required information in this section.
If you have a certification like DOL, DSOE, CDA, DTE, CASM, CAPO etc., you should mention that in the header as well.
Remember to be concise.
