How to avoid getting your construction resume passed over?

Keep your construction resume brief and focused on the particular position you are applying for. Put your strongest and most compelling reason for being the right candidate at the top of the page (experience or education) because many employers will not read past the first few paragraphs when reviewing a resume. You can also overnight or special delivery the resume to have your construction resume placed on top of the stack.
