In the cover letter and resume, I highlighted his talent for positive reinforcement and ability to both lead and inspire. His applicable operational skills with machinery were congruent as were his work health and safety knowledge. All of these qualities were highlighted in his new cover letter and resume.
Seeking a move into the mining industry, specifically into drilling operations, this client needed his transferable abilities skillfully presented to catch the eye of the recruiters. With some highly relevant work experience and other work less applicable to his desired role, we discussed the drilling role requirements and which of his skills matched well to the criteria.
The client has, in their estimation, reached the peak of their career in new and used car sales and wants to begin anew in the mining sector. The applicable qualities were evidentially all soft skills and during the consult, I agreed with him that it was these we should leverage to provide a credible bridge to present as a candidate for an entry level mining opportunity.
