I'm hoping the wise people of SI can help me out with a game plan on how to create a resume.

I need to create a resume for someone who's had 1 job in the last 20 years and I'm having a hard time with it. How can one create a good resume with 1 job to list (gounds keeper)?

Any help and/or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Instead of making the jobs worked the focus of the resume, perhaps make the list of skills the person has the main focus.

Also, what has the person done when he/she wasnt a groundskeeper? Volunteer work and schooling are things that can be added and looked upon favorably.

I could list their extras like a CDL license and their coaching. That'll help.

Tailor your resume to the job you are applying for.

Look at what knowledge, skills, and abilities they are asking for.

Relate how you have those things and where you got them/applied them. It doesn't have to be from a paid job - volunteering, interacting via clubs and kid's stuff, etc.

Watch for the "keywords" they use in their ad and make sure that your resume has the same keywords if they apply to you.

Luck!

do you mean that this person has consistently held the same job for 20 years? That is actually pretty impressive, IMO.

Yep, he's been at the same job since 1988. It'd be easier for me to write a resume for myself than for him, but he is more clueless than I am on this.

The very next thing you should do, after reading this, is to check into www.humanworkplace.com or the humanworkplace group at yahoo.com - they're that good.

Someone said it but google "skills based resume" Have him break down the different types of responsibilities he has had rather that the different jobs. Highlight cost savings, improvements and skills developed.

This. Also highlight any leadership skills, including training new people and supervising people.
