When writing a resume...
Include relevant experience. In the “Work History” section of your resume, include any experience in construction that you have. This can include apprenticeships and other training experiences. In the “Education” section of your resume, include any work certifications, degrees, or licenses. If you are currently in (or about to start) a trade school or other relevant class, mention this.
When you don’t have experience, highlight relevant skills. No matter what, be sure to include relevant skills in your resume. However, if you don’t have much construction experience, you will really want to emphasize your skills. Include phrases that describe your work abilities such as, “fast learner” or “pays attention to details.”
Proofread your resume. Employers want workers with a strong attention to detail. Therefore, avoid any spelling or grammar mistakes, which will make you look sloppy. Proofread your resume before submitting it. Consider asking a friend or family member to look it over as well.
