Here’s a great sample resume for a marine pipe fitter. The job seeker has chosen the achievement resume format to show that, no matter who he has worked for, he has been a solid, strong worker. Let’s take a closer look at this resume to see why this format is a good choice!
About this Resume Sample
Roger (not his real name) has been a marine pipe fitter for over 15 years. At each of his jobs, he has done similar work. Instead of repeating his job duties over and over again, he has used the Achievement style of resume format to quickly show the reader that he knows what he is doing, and would be a great marine pipe fitter at any new job. What else does he do to make a strong case for himself?
- Roger does not want the next hiring manager to know that he is an older worker. By moving his work history to the bottom of the resume, and stating that he has “over 10 years” of experience in the Highlights section at the top of the resume, Roger downplays his age.
- By using a three-word Objective, Roger tells us what he wants and therefore gives us more time to read the rest of the resume!
- Roger has worked as a pipe fitter and as a supervisor of other pipe fitters. He likes doing both jobs, and tells us that by listing his management and training skills in both the Highlights section and in two of the statements in the Experience section.
- Since he wants to work in marine pipe fitting, Roger mentions working on Navy piping systems, as well as on ships in general.
- He also makes sure that we know he has been a Union member for 10 years – he lists his Union status in the Experience section and also goes into more detail in the Education section of his resume.
