For tech resumes, always start out with your skills and number of years using them. A bullet list works great. IT hiring managers look at that first. Then, they want to see how you used those skills in your experience. If you have programming AND finance experience, companies will want you because of all the things they need to do in order to cover themselves for the Sarbane Oxley act. If you see you lack experience in some areas, try to incorporate those things into your present job so you can put them on your resume. I remember when I was an admin assistant at a collection agency. I was in school and knew how to program. So, I started writing batch jobs and things like that at work. I know it looked like I was brown nosing to others because my boss at the time loved it and she was a MEAN lady. But, I had plans. LOL I automated a few of their processes and saved the company time and money. Anyway, I put that programming experience on my resume and landed my first programming job. (Wow... back down memory lane.) I hope this helps. Best wishes. I'll be praying for you.
