If you are making an HVAC apprentice resume, this is a great resume to use as a reference. This sample will help you figure out what to write for your own resume. Here are some mistakes with the sample that you need to avoid when making your own resume.
Dont have to many skills
Of course, its great to have a lot of skills; however, you dont want to overwhelm your resume by listing too many. You only need to list about 10 to 12 of your best skills on your resume. Make sure they pertain to the job and how you interact with other people. Here is how the skills could be cleaned up on the sample. Wrong Highlights
Some of the skills that were removed were skills that the potential employers are going to already assume that you have. Some of the others such as the valid drivers license and Microsoft Word werent necessary at all. The HVAC certification should be put in its own separate licenses and certifications section.
Tone down the experience
The experience section having too much information is a common theme with many resumes. This sample resume reads more like a book than a resume. You only need to get the point across to your potential employers, not give them a play by play about your previous work. You dont need to write in complete sentences on your resume. Just make a list with a short phrase that details the work you did. For example, instead of: Tested machinery, equipment and parts to identify any defects. Write: Tested machinery Anyone reading the resume knows why the machinery is being tested. It doesnt need to be spelled out. Give about 10 details that explain what you did during your employment and leave the rest for your resume.
Use bullet lists in your resume
Along with cutting back on your experience, you need to write it with bullet lists. It will make your information much easier to read. Here is an example of how it should look. Hvac Apprentice, Courier/Independent contractor October 1997 to March 2011Falcon express transportation ? Beltsville, MD HVAC Apprentice-
Along with making the information easier to read, the other jobs should be listed separately with their own dates and locations. They were all jumbled up under one piece of employment and it was confusing. List the other jobs just like this one. This is a great resume, just make sure when you make your own HVAC apprentice resume, you dont make the same mistakes. You can make your resume with the LiveCareer resume builder.
