  • Start with a career objective that tells your employer you have the goal expanding your skill set.
  • Highlight the number of years of experience you have, and in what fields exactly, in the career objective.
  • Also in the career objective, write which position or job title you’re applying for.
  • Specify safety and workplace training certifications and courses you’ve completed.
  • Outline the number of different projects you work on in a given period of time.
  • Describe how you can work well with a team.
