The client had worked extensively as a Plumber and Gas Fitter for over a decade and was seeking a transition into a new field of work. Primarily interested in moving into an entry-level mining capacity, the client also expressed an interest in continuing his vocation as a plumber for the Australian Antarctic Program. Upon consulting with the client and learning his relevant work experience, I was sure to structure his documentation in a manner that could be adapted to suit applications for both fields.
One thing I quickly noticed with regards to the client’s original resume was that he had not gone into much detail when listing his various workplace responsibilities in his work history. Instead, he had opted to list the primary qualification associated with his workplace duties. While this was important information, I felt it was more important to generate a more clear-cut picture of his actual workplace responsibilities as a Plumber and Gas Fitter,. Therefore, I carefully reviewed each of his qualifications online and generated a list of the associated working tasks. Contrasting these with the information I obtained throughout the consultation, I was able to develop a more detailed work history for the client that outlined his specific duties and proficiencies.
Overall, I found this job to be enjoyable and my preferred type of order. The client was clearly able to demonstrate relevant experience and training for the roles he was pursuing but was let down by the presentation and lack of necessary language in his original documents. These are the sort of orders that I find the most rewarding as I feel as though I can directly improve the client’s chances through the careful revision and addition of industry-specific keywords and terminology.
