Your resume is one of the most important tools you have when searching for a job. It is responsible for creating a good first impression, as well as communicating your skills and abilities. Take a look at the expert advice LiveCareer has compiled and the following well data technician resume sample to figure out the best way to write your resume.
Fill your accomplishments section
After your introduction, you can add a section detailing your achievements or awards. This can be an especially effective section, but you should remember that it is ultimately optional. Only include it if you have enough information to fill it out properly. You should never have a section with fewer than three bullet points, as this one does in this resume sample. Also note that the information included in this accomplishments section is not exactly what you should write. It is passable if other, stronger points are added as well, but you should focus instead of tangible benefits that other employers have enjoyed because of you. Examples of these are Improved profits by 5% or Established a more efficient process which is still in use.
Format your experiences section
The experience section is one of the most important parts of a resume, which is why it is so difficult to create one when you do not have many former working experiences. Obviously you cannot include information that you do not have, but it may be appropriate to offset this problem by extending the information you do have. Normally, you would include five to eight bullet points that detail your responsibilities and acquired skills. Because Well Data Technician is the only relevant job this writer has held, they could have written more, especially since the position was held for multiple years. Always be sure that your bullet points are detailing the correct information. Something like Oversee data entry for fourteen production rigs is appropriate, but the majority of this section is concerned with information that employers will not find useful. Your bullets should start with an action verb and be free of personal pronouns.
Tips for your education section
The education section is typically a short and quick section at the end of your resume. What is included will depend on your specific circumstances, but there are some standards that have been established. Your high school education can normally be excluded, unless it was requested or it is your only education experience. If an experience is especially old, it can be left out or the graduation date can simply be removed. If you have less working experience, it may be effective to extend your education section with relevant extra-curricular work or internships.
Manage the length of your resume
The length of your resume may seem irrelevant, but it says a lot about you. To show employers that you are experienced and have a lot to bring to the table, be sure to completely fill one page. Do not bleed onto a second page. This sample resume is too short, but in addition to not having enough information to fill the page, it also has a lot of empty and wasted space. Take a look at all the blank space next to the bullets in the experiences section. To reach the proper length, this resume could extend the summary or highlights slightly, add information to the accomplishments section, format the experiences correctly, or add another optional section after the education section.
