These are mining resumes before and after, you have 6 seconds to show the employer that you know something about how the employers mine works. The people that decide who gets hired and who doesn’t, are incredibly time poor. That means if your resume looks like its going to take more than 5minutes to read then it probably won’t. They like resumes that flow, if you feel you have a special skill or trade that could transfer into the industry then it needs to be on the first page, so the employer see it. It’s no good having all the mining related information on page 3, when page 3 never gets read.
I have been asked to do a resume video for entry level people.
Whatever you think is going to get you the job needs to be on the front page. You typically have 6seconds to impress the person that is going to hire you. Knowing what tickets employers can and can’t use is important. The length of resume is also important.
If you feel you have a special skill or trade that could transfer into the industry then you need to let the company know.
Due to the fact, you have no mining experience make sure all the important information is on the front page and the resume is no more than 3-4 pages long.
Just remember that the reason the employer is interviewing you is because you can answer the mining questions from the training
