Fine, you know your work well. Great that you have proven yourself a few times. But when you apply for a first job, there is nothing more important than making a good first impression. This is especially true for when you want to obtain an apprenticeship and you need to make it obvious that you are knowledgeable and trainable.
Employers do not want to waste their precious time on training people who know little or seem unwilling to learn. They consider them a waste of time. However, if your resume tells them that you are a creative individual who has the capacity to not only learn the trade but also contribute somewhat, you are in luck. So what is the focus on here? Writing a resume that says I am the best! But writing such a resume means that you have to put great focus on the relevance of your content. Pay special attention to this part of your job application credentials and you can be sure of winning the employer’s heart.
For instance, if you are writing a resume for a plumber apprentice position, this is how you can make sure that you shine:
