Personnel Department

I am submitting my resume for employment consideration within your company. As you review my resume you will see that I have a wide array of knowledge and skills amassed from my thirty plus years in the construction industry, with the last six years as a Project Manager. I have the ability to adapt to any position given within a company and strive to be the best at that position.

Utilizing exceptional skills, I implemented processes in a company that lacked order and leadership. I created and enforced a scheduling system, which resulted in a dramatic increase in production. I used material projections and estimations which helped decrease the excess amounts of materials sent out by suppliers; resulting in thousands of dollars of savings per individual project.

When issues would arise, my immediate reaction was to analyze the situation, and initiate a resolution. After taking immediate action on the more time sensitive matters, I would review the situation and identify what measures could be taken to avert problems from reoccurring.

In regards to customer relations, I continually strive to go above and beyond to satisfy the needs of both my internal and external customers. I thrive in this capacity, and enjoy helping to resolve any issues that may arise. I have a unique ability to not only look at things from my own point of view, but to look at things from the customer’s point of view as well. Never losing sight of processes in place, and adhering to all existing standards set forth by my employer. My ability to empathize with people has also aided me in performing in my supervisory role when dealing with employees and subcontractors as well.

In closing, I would just like to say that you will not find a harder working employee that strives to be the best at any position. I look forward to answering any and all questions you may have.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Bruce Steven Graden

Manager Skills:

I am a firm believer in the key to any successful operation is communication. I have always been open to any feedback or suggestions as implementation may improve upon current processes and production. In my 30 plus years of experience in the General Contracting field I have been a large contributor to many successes. Ensuring that any company I worked for, any associate I was responsible for, and any contractor I employed upheld the standards and streamlined procedures set into place by me. I stand for quality workmanship and superior service. I feel I am a man of much strength and put a large emphasis upon my own ingenuity and dedication.

Proficiency / Streamlining / Organization

Met with subcontractors on a regular basis to devise an open forum of communication and establish concrete timelines to all projects at hand.

This schedule type was used to pick up at the dry walling phases to settlement on homes.
