In today's construction market, more and more jobs offered are on a " will interview" basis.
With so much technology in the industry today, your resume is as important as are the tools in your tool bucket. Contractors are looking for people who can demonstrate that they have training and on the job experience in many areas.
To assist you in your quest for that perfect fit, we have developed a resume builder linked to your account in the "Journeyman Services" portion of our website. You can log into "Journeymen Services" and access the "Resume Builder" tab on the upper portion of the page. This opens a template for you to use, where you can fill in personal data, add an opening statement or introduction, provide previous employment history and any other personal information. As you proceed through the builder, it will ask you to "Save and Continue" regularly so you can stop at any point and return later to complete the resume. Once you have added all of the personal information that you have, it will prompt you to select class information and certifications that you have completed through the training center. All of this information is pulled from your records within our database. Once you have made final selections, you will select a template from the options and then "Save and Print". Once you have done this, you can review the document, go back and make changes or simply print and be on your way.
This standardized format will help you to create a professional looking resume that will be recognizable to our contractors, iidentify that you have been working in the industry, and demonstrate your training through NIETC records. You will also be able to revisit your resume when your training or work experience has changed, enabling you to always have a a current resume.
