Engineering Graduates Resume Hacks

For an engineering graduate who choose to not have internships, on-the-job training, or summer jobs as a student, it might be difficult when you already search for a job because of one thing: your resume. In every job application, you are required to submit one that contains all your relevant information and experiences before being employed as an entry-level engineer.

If you have no experiences up your sleeves, you’re basically making a resume out of nothing, with only your basic information and college accomplishments to put in there. Perhaps you already regret that decision of not having any work involvements before, but you know that there’s nothing you can do about the past.

Don’t lose hope just yet. There is a silver lining to this.

On average, recruits spend six seconds reviewing a resume before they make the initial decision on candidates. This is according to a research by TheLadders, an online job-matching service for professionals. This is why you can still have that chance of getting the job if you can only make an excellent resume for someone with little to no experience. That is possible. But how? Here are 5 things:

  • Make your resume as presentable as it can be. You need to have a clean layout on your resume with text that is consistent and easy to read. Have the headers and main sections of information be centered on the page as that’s how recruiters tend to scan resumes.
  • State your goals clearly. It helps if you make it as specific and realistic as you can that is suited for the job you are applying for.
  • Work on your most relevant college accomplishments. You only have those as benchmark so you better build on that. Have all leadership skills, relevant coursework, and skills acquired because they all matter as a working engineer.
  • It’s fine to include references to high school, but highlight only the most important ones. This is to show that you are a well-rounded one who already assumed lots of responsibilities that may be fit for you as an engineer.
  • Include a link to your professional profile but make sure that the ones online are decent enough to be showed to the recruiters once you got the initial cut
