Lets begin with the format itself. Your resume should only be one page. You could be 50 years old, and of worked many jobs, and have vast experience, but a 3 page resume may do you more harm than good. First reason is it’s too long for someone reviewing many resumes. The second reason is that it’s many more words, and chances to talk your self out of an interview. The third reason is that it contains unimportant information, if you had that many previous jobs, or that many other positions, it doesn’t look good either. The final reason is you may portray your age too much. In times past, companies only wanted to hire young Process Operators, so that they may gain many years of experience before retirement. In todays diverse world, companies must hire in a diverse age range, but I wouldn’t try to advertise that you are a life experienced person.
There are many different formats for your one page resume. The format I go with has my information including name, address, phone number, and email at the top. Under that is 3 highlight points that best summarize what I have to offer, or want to highlight about myself. College degree, relevant experience, veterans status, and key accomplishments are things I would recommend highlighting. For the main body, list the companies you’ve worked for with the positions you’ve held in chorological order (newest to oldest).
For each company that you worked for, try to include 5 bullet points. Those points should be relevant to the Process Operator job that you are applying for. For instance, if you were a truck driver. Talk about how you worked safely working towards the goals of safely, and efficiently getting the product to the customer. If you were a scaffold builder, talk about how you followed procedures to efficiently erect scaffolds with keeping in mind that others safety depended on you doing your job correctly. You could talk about how you paid attention to the hazards around you, and helped inform others of potential issues to keep everyone safe. Did you notice key words I used? Safety, efficient, customer, procedures, team work, and attention to your job and surrounds. Keep those words in mind, but don’t over use them either. At the very bottom of your resume you can list your special training, or higher education. If you have fire experience, rescue training, medical training, or college degree that you did not list as a highlight at the top of your resume, you can list it down here. Do not list them twice. Proof read your resume. It can be hard to catch your own grammatical errors, so read it a lot and make sure it flows smoothly. Have someone else proof read it for you too. I hope that is a good overview of a resume. If you are applying for jobs, and not hearing back, I can help. Let’s fix your Process Operator Resume, and get you the JOB!
