Begin by searching through the job listings on the appropriate sites to understand the types of positions available and the different segments of the glass industry, such as the actual manufacturing of the glass or selling the products to buyers. Use the search filtering options to find jobs in a given area to see local listings or to locate jobs that match your current skill set. Read through the requirements in each listing to identify trends in training, skills or other types of employment. This allows you to eliminate listings for jobs for which you don't qualify.

Once you create a list of jobs for which you wish to apply, tailor your resume to match each position. Remove irrelevant past jobs and expand the descriptions for each position to highlight the skills the company wants in its employees. Create one resume for each position so that it highlights the most relevant and impressive accomplishments for that job, then follow the company's process for submitting an application. This may include emailing a hiring manager or completing a form through the job listing website.
