Resume Writing & Cover Letter Questions

I want to sell myself in my construction resume. How do I do that?

In the end, businesses make money. Try to capture what it is about you that is unique and will translate into revenue for your prospective construction employer. Sell yourself in your construction resume by encapsulating your benefit to the bottom line. If you were in charge of a manufacturing or development division, describe the financial success you created for your last construction employer. If you were managing a small group of software developers, describe how your group hit their milestones and brought their piece of the project in under budget and before the deadlines.
