In the HVAC Service field, there are a plethora of routes you can go in your career. Whether it’s industrial, commercial or residential, it’s important to highlight your accomplishments within your resume. When a potential employer, recruiter or staffing agent comes across your resume, they spend a total of 1 minute or less screen-lining your resume to see if you’re a great fit for the job. Therefore, it’s imperative that you emphasize your skill-set within your resume.
Key points to include in your resume:
Explicitly state if you’re more on the residential, industrial or commercial side.
The size of package units you have worked on --- the bigger the tons, the better!
How much knowledge you have of the following:
o VRF systems
o Air controlled chillers and centrifugal water chillers
o Refrigeration experience
Extra information to include:
Trade school you attended.
Valid driver’s license
Technicians commonly switch jobs due to work slowing down. Stable work-history is a big plus amongst large, mechanical contractors.
Union or non-union.
As your job hunt ensues, take the time to update and perfect your resume as it’ll help you find a position faster. Companies are drawn to key points in resumes, so remember to draw attention to your skills and work experience!
