How should i list skills as a Marketing Assistant(a door knocker) on my resume? Topic: How to write a resume for construction jobs
July 24, 2019 / By Gair
Question: I am a marketing assistant for a local construction, but basically what I do is door knock. I go from house to house trying to set up appointments for salespeople to come out and inspect their roof for hail damage. If i am successful in getting the homeowner to agree to a free inspection, then I write down their information, set up an appointment, and hand them a flier. done. So basically, I am a door knocker who sets up leads for salespeople. How should I list the bulleted description under my job title in a way that makes it sound more profound?

I can make some suggestions, but the first thing you need to do is make sure your employer will verify whatever you put down on your resume. If you come up with a different title for example, they need to back you up when a prospective employer does a reference check. That said, I would call yourself something wtih "new business development" in it, such as "New Business Development Associate, Consultant, or Specialist" Those are all "Independent Contributor" level titles that are pretty generic. In terms of duties & responsibilities here are a few ideas: 1. Identify and qualify new business leads for $___ construction company (specify annual revenue for company you work for, and any other info such as specialty...like roofing, insurance restoration, etc. that would give an idea of the company's size and therefore the scope of your responsibilities). 2. Establishes quality first impressions in order acquire new clients and facilitate seamless hand offs to estimators 3. Presents company's unique value proposition to prospective clients in order to secure new business accounts. I would describe your duties and responsibilities in 3-4 sentences making sure you provide details about the company's size, specialty, location, etc. More important than that however, is your accomplishments....under the description, try to think of at least 3 things that you did that added value or made an impact. For example, roughly how many appointments were you able to set up? What was the result in terms of new revenue? Was that an increase from the previous year? Did you develop a new or more effective system for managing your territory? Did you use an effective method for following up with home owners that originally said no, or were not home? Accomplishments are your unique selling points that will set you apart from other job seekers and showcase your talents, skills, and competencies. Best of luck, Coach

Are you writing a cover letter? I've never seen a resume with such a long "Skills" section. Mostly, resume's are full of bullet-point statements, that start with action words. Google for resume templates, and maybe you'll find one that fits your situation. *** I would not include your last sentence, as you've written it. It sounds really harsh, but no company cares about what they'll be doing for you (...increasing YOUR familarity...). Companies only want to hear what you'll do for them. Perhaps your "Objective Statement" could be written like this: Objective: Leverage my knowledge of business marketing to to drive sales profitibly, while increasing customer satisfaction through effective use of continued education of luxury goods.

It sounds really very perfect for your resume. I think you should moderate this whole stuff in little corporate with some additional touch to make it blind-perfect for your resume.

Cancel your checking, call your bank and tell them the situation and they can cancel your checking account number so the check doesn't work when the scammer tries to cash/deposit it.

Make sure you mail the cancellation and keep a copy for yourself. Indicate in the cancellation that you have stopped payment on the check. There is no need to close your bank account. When the check doesn't go thru, the magazine company will probably do nothing more. They may sell the debt to a collection agency -- that's why you keep a copy of your cancellation letter. But they probably won't even do that. In the future, never buy anything from anyone who knocks on your door or calls on the phone. Just say no thank you and close the door or hang up ... okay, maybe you can still buy cookies from a Girl Scout ...

If they still send you the magazines, just write " Return to sender". They'll eventually get the idea.
