Updated on: November 10, 2019

It is becoming increasingly difficult in the present-day job market to secure a good job – even for well-qualified candidates.

The following are two tips regarding lineman resume writing:


1. Custom Made

Keep one master resume and edit it to cater to the specific requirements of the employer. Hiring managers like to read only the information that communicates how you can prove to be productive for them

2. Easy to read

No one has time to try to make sense out of resumes. If your resume is not clearly written chances are, the employer will simply move down the pile and pick up the next one. Write coherently, in a readable font style and size

Below is a sample resume for a lineman position to guide you further in this regard.
