|In addition to what I will show you here, it will help to read a few
books on resume' preparation to get a balanced view of the variety of styles
that can be used. After seeing what I typically do and what the books have
to offer, you may develop your own style. You could also have a professional
resume' service prepare it for you from a cost of $60 to $350 a crack.
I've gone both routs and have found it to be a learning experience to say
After going the resume' preparation service rout, I found myself dissatisfied with the quality of product and so took it upon myself to develop my own resume'. What you will see on the following pages is a culmination of what I have read in books and from what I have seen on other résumé's. This may not be the best resume' you've ever read but, it is considerably better than what many professional services will generate for you. I know because I've seen many résumé's in my time due to the fact that I've had to screen applicants for job positions and I owned a resume' preparation business myself. I had four locations. One in our nation's capital and three in the city where I live, so I know what I'm talking about.
RESUMES' CAN VARY FROM FLAGRANTLY BOASTFUL TO A POINT WHERE THE READER MAY FIND THEMSELVES ASKING "WHERE'S THE BEEF?" SO MAKE IT STAND OUT BUT DON'T BRAG. IT'S A FINE LINE TO WALK AND REQUIRES SOME EXPERIMENTATION.
THIS IS THE RESULT;

Re: (Possible openings or advertised position)
Dear (Mr. or Ms. or Miss or Mrs So and So. know who your audience is.);
Please accept my resume' for the position advertised. I am presently seeking a technical, operating and, or supervisory position.
My qualifications include eight years of experience as an Operator in the oil and gas industry and a Second Class Inter state Stationary Engineer Certificate. I am motivated, and a self starter. In my role as Shift Engineer I am responsible for the safe operation of a First Class Power / High Pressure Steam Plant, Refinery Control Room with Digital Control Systems, Process area, Tank Farm, contractor operated Barreling and Marine Facilities, as well as assigning maintenance tasks to various departments.
(If you are starting out in this career and have no technical background then simply put that you have just recently graduated from XYZ Technical Institute with training in the areas mentioned earlier in my report to you that you will have covered if you acquire your first [fourth class] diploma. That should be enough to impress most who will read your resume'. Hopefully the individual who is reading your resume' knows what a Stationary Engineer or a P.E.T. is.)
As you will see from my work history (or training) I have a significantly diversified background, able to adapt to any task at hand. I'm certain my steam, utilities, process and supervisory background will be an asset to you.
I presently work a 14 day duty cycle and twelve hour shifts in the Arctic. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss a Team Player (they like this kind of talk, so put it in there) position in greater detail. I can be contacted at 555-487-8973 (Home) or 555-481-3174 (Home Fax) if you require additional information.
Thank you for your consideration.
(Your first and last
names with your middle initial.)
