Resume Outline :
Although anyone can learn to develop an effective resume, it can also be helpful to consult those who specialize in the career search process. In this spirit, the following are common resume and cover letter questions posed to career counselors and other experts and their responses.
A dislocated worker is a worker who has been laid off from his or her job because the company closed or moved away. These workers are often unable to find new jobs because there is no longer a need for their skills. A good example is workers in the textiles industry. Many textile companies have closed because the United States now imports large amounts of clothing and fabrics. This is due to the fact that labor costs abroad make the price of foreign goods cheaper than the price of those made here. Other
industries are affected in the same way.
If you are a dislocated worker, you may have to get training to learn new job skills. You can get this training through a community (two-year) college, a government-funded job training program, or other reputable program. Your library or state employment office has information about where you can get training.
Dislocated workers need to highlight skills that can be used in many different kinds of jobs. All of us have such skills. For example, if you worked in the steel industry, some of your skills might be useful in other manufacturing companies. If you know how to use special equipment or machinery or understand how to use different types of machines, you can probably operate machinery somewhere else. If you have enjoyed teaching
others how to operate machinery, you can look for jobs that allow you to train others. If you have experience in other areas, whether or not it was paid experience, include such experience on your resume.
Also, ask yourself some questions.
Can I get a job in a different industry because I know about that industry?
Are some of the skills I have the same as the skills needed in the new industry?
Did I ever do volunteer work? What kinds? Are there any jobs I could get doing the same kind of work?
Is there a place I could move to where my industry still operates?
Is there something else I could do to make money, like starting my own small business?
Do I want to go to school to learn new job skills?
By answering these questions, you can learn more about yourself. This will make it easier for you to write a new resume. The following resume examples will also help you.
