Potential employers scanning a pile of resumes will quickly focus on Technical Qualifications (TQs) in a resume that provide them with a snapshot of that person’s ability to perform a specific job. TQs include having in-depth knowledge of computer software or hardware, operating specialized machinery, or hands-on familiarity with processes necessary to complete learned tasks.
If, during a job interview, a potential employer asks about your core competencies and your “technical qualifications,” the interviewer may want to know about your computer/software/hardware skills versus other skills you possess that are not related to computer technology.
Professional Technical Qualifications (PTQs) refer to the addition of professional or vocational qualifications to your list of TQs. These involve elements of practical training that are industry-specific and meant to promote improvement and development of special skills pertinent to definitive career paths. Some PTQs may require certification or some type of diploma indicating the person has completed accredited courses, practica, or a series of seminars providing instruction on a particular professional qualification.
Mandatory Technical Qualifications (MTQs) are exactly that—mandatory. If you are applying for a job that is highly specialized, such as a Jet Aircraft Mechanic or Nuclear Physicist, there will be certain MTQs hiring executives will expect to see listed on your resume.
