Engineering is one of the most lucrative and stable career markets that one can get
into- if they can get in. There is certainly a competitive and steep margin of job
applications for engineers and for someone to make it, they need to prove their
superiority in terms of job competency and academic qualifications. You cannot
simply accomplish this by sending a list of records and professional experiences that
doesn't outline your outstanding skill and quality relevant to the engineering job
opening. To have an edge and provide potential employers with a glimpse of your true
capacity as an engineer, you need to write an outstanding resume.
A great resume starts with the right heading. Engineering jobs are not just skill based
jobs but are also academic and skill qualification races. If you have a professional title
that is relevant to the position it is important to highlight this as part of your heading.
These days it's just not enough to have the title of Engr., as part of your professional
name, perhaps a PhD in mathematics or a master's degree will better qualify you and
will make your application stand out from a pile of employment hopefuls who all,
also finished engineering. Sometimes the kind of engineer you are will help you land
the job easier.
Provide the employer with an incentive by showing off your academic
accomplishments and intellectual capacity as an engineer. There are many Companies
who want to know that you are more than capable to come up with decisions and
solutions for engineering problems that you may encounter with your job. If you have
professional certification on leadership programs, academic enrichment courses and
accomplishments in mathematics and logic then it is pertinent to add this to your list
of qualifications. You can also index your tested IQ.
