Your resume is a key piece to your job search. You have to make sure that your resume is professional looking and as error free as possible. Thankfully, you can get expert advice by looking at this wireline field operator resume sample that has been reviewed to showcase common mistakes and how to avoid them. ? Swap the objective with a summary ? At one point an objective statement was expected on resumes. Now experts suggest that you write a four to six sentence summary that highlights your experience, major skills and valuable personality traits. Here is an example of a summary section for a wireline field operator resume: Hardworking Wireline Field Operator with 2 years of experience. Understand importance of detail oriented log keeping. Outstanding communication skills and ability to work well in a team makes many jobs easier to complete. Look forward to continuing to learn new things and hone skills. The summary focuses on relevant experience as well as skills and personality traits that will help the applicant succeed at wireline field operator position. ? Be consistent ? You want your resume to look professional. One way to ensure that it does is to make sure that you are consistent throughout. This means using formatting tools, capitalizing information the same way and accurately using past or present tense. You can easily make sure that your resume is consistent by looking for these small errors. As an example, you can look at the wireline field operator resume sample and notice that the applicant has capitalization inconsistencies as well as an inconsistent use of past tense in his last entry of his professional experience. Make sure that you use present tense if you are still in the position and past tense if the position has an end date listed on your resume. ? Consider the order of information ? Experts will tell you that you want to keep your most current information first. The sample applicant has his education before experience because he graduated rather recently, but someone who has been in the workforce for 15 or more years would have their education listed after their experience. One section that commonly comes after the summary is the skills section. The reason experts suggest having this section closer to the top is because it is a nice overview for the hiring manager to see right away. While you’re writing your resume, remember that you want the information that is most relevant and recent towards the top because hiring managers tend to skim through lots of resumes, and you want yours to really stick out. ? Consider the information ? Finally, you want to make sure that all of the information in each of your sections is fitting. You want to avoid including information that is too personal, not relevant and not recent. On the sample resume, the affiliations section has information that isn’t relevant to the position or the section.
