No matter how well qualified you are for a mining engineer position, a poorly written resume can cost you your dream job. It is therefore very important to take out time and customize your resume to present your candidacy as a viable one. Here are a few helpful tips in this regard:
• A headed summary to top your resume: Brand your profile summary with a heading that concisely communicates what you offer in terms of experience and qualification and also identifies the role you are currently seeking.
• Relevance of qualifications: Sometimes, candidates possess a lot of qualifications and experience which they might feel tempted to highlight in their resume. However, irrelevant details can damage your candidacy and including only the relevant details of your candidacy while ignoring the irrelevant ones is a wise decision.
• Technical Strengths: When applying for a technical position always highlight your technical strengths in the competencies section in an optimized manner since these are basic to the job.
