Three Key Resume Tips For Landing an Assembler Job:

Relevant Experience
Make sure that the jobs, experience, and accolades that you do include are relevant to the position you’re applying for.
The Right Skills
This is a great time to run wild with those keywords found in the job description. If they’re looking for someone with Part Numbers, be sure to list it as a skill.
Strong Content
If you’ve had a lot of jobs, this shouldn’t necessarily be a list of all of them. This is a document designed to market you to a potential employer, so choose the strongest content.

How To Write an Assembler Resume

Contact Information
First things first — employers only spend about six seconds looking at resumes before they decide to keep them or throw them away, so you should definitely let them know whose it is.
Commute and relocation are things that employers take into consideration when sifting through candidates, so provide your current address in your resume header so that employers have an idea of where you are in relation to their office.
LinkedIn Profile
If you feel that a link to your social media profile could further your standing as a candidate, go ahead and include it. This doesn’t mean you should throw in a link to your hilarious Twitter profile, but instead provide your LinkedIn profile.
Professional Summary (Objective)
Career objective statements are one of the most overlooked pieces of otherwise stellar resumes. It’s not that every Assembler CV out there needs one — it’s just that the ones that really do need them typically never think to include them.
The goal of this section is simple: to summarize the resume in a few short sentences. Through your resume summary you enable employers to quickly learn whether you are a good match for the job. Here are a few things to keep in mind when writing a professional summary:
Keep it short: it should be 4 sentences max
