Should an construction executive construction resume be different than a professional level construction resume?

Should construction executive construction resumes be different than professional level construction resumes? Not really. construction executive and professional construction resumes should follow the same format. The focus should be on stressing the most important reasons why you are the right construction executive for the job. It is important that you understand the position and the qualifications required so that you can highlight those abilities. The average reader will only look at the first page of a construction resume. If you do not grab their attention immediately, you may not get a second chance.  construction executive construction resumes can be a bit longer in length than professional level construction resumes but should be no more than three pages total. Finally, make sure to stress your competency as a good construction executive and construction manager, giving examples and listing accomplishments to support your claims.
