Building an entry level resume for plumber position is a difficult task subject to two reasons; firstly because it is the candidate’s first resume and secondly because the candidate has practically nothing to showcase in the experience section.
The easy solution of this problem is to build a skills based or functional resume. This is an intelligently designed format, especially suitable for beginners. It helps in shifting the reader’s focus onto the candidate’s potential and skills rather than the candidate’s experience. In an entry level resume, do not forget to mention any relevant vocational training taken especially if the training demanded an internship period that you have successfully completed.
