I am trying to update my resume and I am having a slight problem listing knows languages/technologies. First, how detailed should the list be? Should I be like, JDK, J2EE or should I get pretty detailed and be like Java (Swing, AWT, JSP/Servlets....etc)

Also, how and what type of heading should I list things like Struts, Tapestry, JSF, Hibernate, iBatis, etc? How do you all put this on your resume? Or do you even bother to get that detailed?

Thanks.

There are some good sites which help in making resume. Just get hooked to them.

Web Application Frameworks?

In resumes that I've seen there are usually 3 or 4 one-line lists in the rough overview: 1 for languages, 1 or 2 for more specific technologies and frameworks that can be lumped under the same label (Web Application Frameworks for example), one for application servers and/or databases, and sometimes one for operating systems.
It shouldn't take more than an inch of the resume.

Gregg,

I would like to go detailed.

Also, how and what type of heading should I list things like Struts, Tapestry, JSF, Hibernate, iBatis, etc? How do you all put this on your resume? Or do you even bother to get that detailed?


My opinion - If an Organization is using struts and you put the same in the resume it would help.

Hi Gregg,

In my experience, it all depends on which position you are applying to. If you know that the company asks for very deep knowledge in Java development and specifically JDBC and JSP, then I would spell them out explicitly on the resume. Otherwise, "Java/J2EE" would do just as well. Same remark for the web frameworks. If you know the company you are applying to needs someone who knows this and that frameworks, mention them. If you have enough room on your CV, you can list all the cool languages and frameworks you know, but highlight the ones you think will make the greatest impact and you know are usually widely demanded. Keep in mind that RH guys only spend like 30 seconds on your CV, so make sure s/he gets a very good idea of what you know very quickly. Similarly, make sure s/he doesn't discover what you don't know too quickly (easier said than done)
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
