BLUE COLLAR & BEYOND:
Resumes for Skilled Trades and Services
Table of contents & Resume Examples
- What we once called "blue collar" jobs now includes all kinds of work vital to our modern service economy. And NOW these jobs often call for resumes. Even when it's not required, a good resume in hand can help a blue collar worker make a powerful first impression on an employer, and feel more confident in preparing for an interview.
Here are 132 resumes for the kinds of jobs that usually do not require a college education--from construction trades to food service to office support.
The book includes an extensive Resume Clinic for tough problems, and a "Crash Course in Resume Writing."
- This book is out of print but may be available through used bookstores.
