Resume Writing & Cover Letter Questions


What's the best way to include similar information for past job descriptions in your resume?

Add Answer
Regardless of job title, if your current duties and responsibilities are similar to those with past employers, then it's acceptable to simply put a referencing phrase (Example: Duties and responsibilities are similar to above), rather than repeat the same duties and responsibilities. This is also a preferred method to a single general list of duties and responsibilities in a functional style resume. Construction Employers like to see a chronological resume that references names and locations of employers, along with titles and duties for each job. However make sure you detail your duties and responsibilities with your current employer, and make sure to list any unique accomplishments with each employer you list on your resume. The resume should look clean and be short as possible since it's purpose is to make a good introductory impression, and capture a job interview. A construction resume should not be used as a biography. Added by:- Admin
