Overview

Civil engineers, mechanical engineers, structural engineers, marine engineers, chemical engineers, systems engineers, and engineering support personnel have a lot in common when they want to create a resume, and this book shows resumes and cover letters of individuals who want to work in the field. For those who seek federal employment, there's a special section showing how to create federal resumes and government applications.

A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you want to enter the engineering field or advance in the industry, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific resume book! You will love this book targeted specifically to the engineering field. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."

Praise for other books in the Real-Resumes Series:
"Distinguished by its highly readable samples." Library Journal
"Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift: select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy--with REAL RESUMES in hand." - The Midwest Book Review
"This thoughtful resource should come as a welcome and valuable tool." -Small Press

Testimonials from people who have successfully used this book:
"Although I graduated from college in a recession when engineers were not in demand, I was able to find a job when my peers could not because I turned to the great samples in the Real-Resumes book for engineers. This book gave me the confidence to show off my summer experience and internships in ways that were professional and appealing to companies. I actually had multiple interviews when my friends weren't even getting call backs." A. Santos
"After many years in the engineering field, I decided that I wanted to make a career change into the nonprofit arena. The Real-Resumes Series showed me sample after sample of resumes used by real people to change careers, and I found the words to communicate my potential to do something I'd never been paid to do." T. Antelakos
"Coming from military experience, I had an engineering background but I had been working in the 'foreign language' of military acronyms and military jargon. Thanks to this book, I learned how to express myself in civilian language." G. Ching
