The Resume  A resume is a crucial element in the job application process. Although a
resume is such an important piece of paper, it’s funny how seldom most people
Keep your resume current when things are going well. That way if something good
comes along, you won’t be faced with trying to reconstruct a timeline of all the jobs and
training you’ve had since 1998. But before you put together your resume, think of its
job. What is a resume supposed to do for you? Well, a good resume should enable an
employer to evaluate you at a glance…   your education, your job experience, your
special training.
manager shuffle through four pages of attachments to figure out you obtained a 500
ton license in 2004. A resume should present information in a clean and organized
manner. You satisfied your STCW 95 training? Good. That belongs on your resume
where it can be found quickly. You have hazmat training…that’s important. Make it easy
to find.
There's no single "right" way to structure a resume. Resume formats can vary.
However, a safe formula lists your attributes as follows:

■ Basic personal information - This includes your name, your address, your phone
number and e-mail. Make sure this information is accurate. We don’t say this to speak
down at anyone. Sure…everyone knows their phone number and things like that. But it’
s easy make a typing error where a digit of your phone number is off. Imagine an
employer trying to reach you and not being able to figure out why they get the home of a
different person.

■ Education - State where you went to school and what kind of degree you earned. If
you graduated from a high school that offered commercial, vocational and academic
degrees, state the degree you earned. If you have a college degree or college credits,
state those. Include a major.
Continued from below

■ Training - List any special
training you went through.
This includes things like
STCW training, tankerman
training, ARPA training, a
course in oil spill
response…   this is
important. Sometimes a
person’s education section
may be plain and short but
their training might be a
quarter of a page long.
Meaningful training is
important to include on a
resume.

Now as for things like your
hobbies, personal
descriptions…  that’s where
people have differing
opinions. Some people say
there’s no need. Some
people say those things can
only hurt. Others say they
give an employer a better
insight into the solidity of a
candidate. That part is up to
you.

Good luck!
