Insights and advice about jobs and hiring in the Lehigh Valley.

Why Every Job is Worthy of a Professional Resume When Applying

If you think professional resumes are exclusive to white-collar opportunities, you are sorely mistaken. When applying for warehouse jobs in Allentown, PA and beyond, always include a polished resume, because it’s the standard.

Failing to submit a professional resume with your application indicates you don’t think the job is worthy of one. This attitude won’t sit well with employers, because they know every job at their company is important.

Three Reasons to Submit a Professional Resume for a Warehouse Job

If your resume is in shambles or you don’t have one at all, you probably don’t receive many job interview invitations. Make a change for the better by taking the time to craft a professional resume before applying for one more warehouse position.

Put Your Skills on Display

You’re a talented worker with a lot to offer any employer. However, hiring managers aren’t able to fully gauge your skills without a comprehensive resume. A job application only provides a snapshot of your abilities, so you need a professional resume to supplement it.

There’s no way to know exactly what the hiring manager is looking for in the ideal candidate. Required skills listed in the job description are a start, but if your resume underlines more extensive experience, this could give you a competitive edge.

Highlight Your Achievements

A well-written resume is one place where it’s okay — even encouraged — to brag a little. Sharing specific achievements from past jobs allows the reader to fully understand the breadth of your experience.

If the hiring manager has to choose between a candidate with a professional resume and one without, they’ll likely go with the former, because they’ve been presented with more information about the candidate.

Show Enthusiasm

More than just a way to convey your fit for the job, submitting a polished resume is a sign of respect. Going the extra mile shows you’re truly excited about the job, which will really impress the reader. Displaying a little initiative can propel your search to new heights.
