ATIM Manufacturing Resumes:  Free Tools and Tips

Update your resume to show you are qualified for the job and that you are a great candidate.

If your background in manufacturing before ATIM was limited, you may have experiences from other jobs that combined with your new technical skills and credentials make you an excellent fit for the job.  A good attendance record and strong work ethic are important to employers and can help compensate for a lack of experience.  Very often your resume makes the first impression with an employer. We have tools to help make that first impression a good one.

Free Resume Samples in your ATIM account!

Entry-level manufacturing resume samples are available in your free resume and portfolio builder.  The samples provide examples for the key items that should be included in your resume.

  • Manufacturing Industry Key Words
  • Quantifiable Examples
  • Work-Based Learning Experiences
  • Competencies
  • Credentials

Use the samples as a starting point.  Customize the details to accurately describe your skills, training, credentials, and past experience.  Create more than one resume so you can tailor how you package your experience and skills to the position for which you are applying.

Showcase how your work has helped company profits or growth. Bottom-line, every business, industry, and profession is about making money. Highlight how your work led to revenue growth and profit improvement in your company, your division, or your facility. Use dollars or percentages, whichever is easiest to calculate, seems most impressive, and does not divulge privileged information.  Be sure the information is accurate and could be verified.1

Describe your experience with creating new opportunities or products. New opportunities are what move the manufacturing industry forward, so be certain to include any related experience you’ve had with identifying new opportunities. This could be working at a start-up facility, helping to develop and commercialize new products, building new production plants, introducing new products onto the manufacturing floor, or a host of other activities. 1
