You now have all the qualifications ready for the mines, so what’s next?
How’s your resume for the mining industry looking?
Is your resume going to stand out from the rest?
If you read it, would YOU employ you?
Did you know that a lot of companies now use scanning programs to read your resume BEFORE a human reads it and they insert “key words” to search for?
Do you have the required keywords for those scanning programs?
Is your resume visually appealing?
Is it well structured?
If you answered any of these questions with a sense of uncertainty, then you need to ACT NOW!!
Employers are extremely time poor and do not want to sift through your resume looking for the information they require.
Equally, they do not want to read a novel.
Did you know that employers give your resume about 10-20 seconds initially?
If they like the look of it and can see the information they need easily, they will spend more time on it (but only about 1-2 minutes at the most).
A resume is the very first point of meeting between you and a prospective mining employer.
It does not matter how skilled you are or how right you are for the job, if the mining employer can’t locate the information quickly then you will get overlooked.
What is required in a resume is:
- Good structure
- Well defined sections
- Things placed in order of importance to the proposed role
- Key words
- Easy to locate information
- Visual appeal
