Resume Writing & Cover Letter Questions

How can I get around using construction resumes to find a job?

Some construction candidates are able to apply for construction jobs using a short profile or by verbal communication of their background. Typically solid references from a familiar reference will carry enough weight in the mind of a construction employer so a detailed resume is not required for hire. Many construction employers do not use construction resumes but require all applicants to submit their credentials on their customized application forms.
