requires skills previous generations of IT
executives ignored or scorned. (People

executive must be a master of the
technology he manages plus the
business lines it supports. What follows

tech pros themselves, that executives
must demonstrate to advance in an IT
career.

Cover Letters
1. Technical savvy There's no getting around the fact that IT stands
for "information technology." Your experience must show a proven
track record of leveraging technology to increase performance,
productivity and competitive edge. But technical savvy is nothing

2. Business acumen Hiring managers are looking for people who
can integrate knowledge of technology with knowledge of
business. Technology no longer just supports business – it drives
it. The decisions made around technology, and the ability to identify
new products and services that will take an organization to the next
level, are among the most important made at almost all
organizations.

3. Communications skills Have you ever seen the "Saturday Night
Live" skit where Jimmy Fallon plays Nick Burns, an IT help desk
employee who revels in making end-users feel like idiots? It's
satire, of course, but there's always a kernel of truth to satire. It
can't hurt to ensure that you are in no way falling into the "IT guy"
stereotype, especially as you are looking to move up in the
industry. Ask trusted colleagues among your organization for
feedback on your communications skills, and take their
constructive criticism to heart.

4. The ability to speak multiple languages Along the same lines as
No. 3, it's important to be fluent in the languages (and different
dialects) of technology, business, your organization's industry and
end-user concerns.

5. Project management skills Hiring managers want to see that you
have been successful at project management. It's not enough to
know your stuff; you have to know about everyone else's stuff and
be able to manage the various technologies, business
applications, skills and personalities involved in a project.

6. Certifications While
certifications are not high on
the lists of the experts who
spoke with TheLadders, if
you do list your certifications,
you have to also be able to
articulate how you have
applied them. "I’m not a fan
of certifications by
themselves," said Robert
Rosen, CIO of the National
Institute of Arthritis and
Musculoskeletal and Skin
Diseases. "We sometimes

7. A curious mind Hiring managers are looking for people who are
always looking at how things work and how to make them better. "I
found some of the greatest people have the attribute of frequently
saying, 'I wonder why it did that?' and then finding out why," Rosen
said.
8. Flexibility and foresight The rate of technological change is
staggering, and employers require IT pros who are able to not only
adapt to that change but to be out in front of it.
