Facing difficulty in building your resume for a boiler maker position? Resume building can definitely pose to be a challenge in today’s job industry. Candidates usually find it daunting to squeeze their professional profile in a single page document. The most common resume mistake is to over emphasize one’s experience, taking up all the space meant actually for showcasing the potential.

Mentioning your potential and capabilities to communicate what you can do for the hiring firm is very important, however, it doesn’t mean past experience is not worth mentioning. The right way to go about in this regard is to mention your past achievements in a manner that your expertise is automatically communicated.
