In the manufacturing field as in most fields today, finding a new position in the manufacturing or production has become much more competitive in the last few years. You need to have that cutting edge resume to get you noticed over the rest of the applicants.
Look over the samples for the manufacturing industry, you will find that key words and clear accomplishments have become much more critical and metrics with quantifiable results makes the resume more valuable. When I initially began to writing professional resumes, you really didn’t even need a resume for most manufacturing positions, you filled out an application. If I did a resume, it was a “who what where when” type of resume. Now they need to know more about how you do what you do and what differentiates you from the rest.
