    You can think of a resume as an informational document that tells the story of your career and your skills, work experience, and education. However, it also serves as a summary of your accomplishments.
  • It is important to ensure that your resume aligns with the job description's requirements by emphasising the relevant education, work experience, and skills you have (languages, software systems, certifications).
  • If you have experience in different roles, you should list them in reverse chronological order with the most recent at the top. Be careful to use the correct tense when describing your former roles and when describing your current roles.
  • Your resume should, in most cases, be kept to just one page and should only contain the last ten years of your work experience. If there are any gaps in your resume, you can explain them in more detail during your interview.
  • If possible, quantify your accomplishments as much as you can. For instance, "Increased sales revenue by10% over the past year.".
  • Save as PDF or Word (not HTML or Text)_and name your resume files with your first and last name.
  • Pro Tip: Check your spelling, grammar, and formatting before you submit your application to ensure that it is accurate.

    Be Unique

    Having a unique personal brand allows you to stand out from the competition by giving the hiring team a better understanding of your values and the way in which you display them. In other words, your brand describes who you are and what you represent. It allows you to tell the story about your professional journey and career goals in your own words.
  • Communicate your top values in a clear and concise manner.
  • If you want to be the best version of yourself, share what inspires you to do so.
  • Consider the ways in which your passions are aligned with your work.
  • Pro Tip: Everyone is unique in their own way. Take some time to ask colleagues or friends what makes you unique. This may help you define your personal brand when speaking with the talent team.

    Each application is acknowledged automatically within five minutes after submission, and a personalised confirmation email with the result of the application is sent within one to two weeks sometimes sooner.
    By logging into your account, you can update your personal information and resume, as well as reset your preferences for receiving job notifications.
    Apply for as many jobs as you feel match your experience and skills.
    There are more than 100 applications received for each open position, so we have to apply specific selection criteria.

Our career pages also advertise new positions on a regular basis, so we encourage you to check them out regularly.
    For each role, the criteria will vary, but we typically consider past career history, education, accreditations, charterships, responsibilities in previous positions, sector experience, and transferrable skills.
    A telephone interview lasting 20-25 minutes will be scheduled after the talent team has reviewed the application of the strongest four to five candidates. In the event of success, you will be invited to a more formal interview that usually lasts about an hour and is conducted by a hiring manager.
    Our goal is to review all applications within five working days and reply to you directly within one week, regardless of the outcome. However, during peak times, this may take up to two weeks.
    You will be notified after 12 months that we will ask your permission to retain your details for another 12 months. At the annual review, you may send us an updated resume and information.

    We are aware that fraudulent job offers are being made to prospective candidates across the construction industry, particularly to people outside of Canada.

    A fake job offer via email commonly asks for personal information, financial information, and/or payment for visas.

    We do not send job offers without meeting individuals. We do not send email from addresses like @gmail.com or @constructionindustry.com, and we never request payment for a job application.

    Please contact careers@learconstruction.com immediately if you believe you have been targeted by an employment scam.

    You can expect us to investigate and respond directly to you when we find out about these instances. It is important for our legal team to be aware of these cases.
