Sample Resume: Assembly Worker

Veronica needed help crafting a resume to land a new position as an electronics adjuster/assembler. She turned to Tessa Weeks, owner of Make Every Word Count, to help her build a more powerful resume. To make Veronica stand out, Weeks focused on more than just Veronica's technical skills. Weeks showcased Veronica's rapid and frequent promotions and highlighted the fact that she was bilingual because she was seeking employment in a geographic location with a high percentage of Hispanic workers. Weeks also used a quotation taken from one of Veronica's performance reviews to prove the value she could add for an employer.
