Remember that the person who first sees your CV may not have a engineering background, so you have to ensure that it highlights the fundamental and specialist skills you possess.
What should your Electronics Engineer CV / resume contain?
Highlight your skills, qualities and experiences such as:
- Your ability to analyse complex problems and consider possible solutions
- Your decision-making, team-working and communication skills
- Maths, science, technology and IT skills
- Testing installations and systems, and analysing data
- Evidence to demonstrate you have comprehensive understanding of electrical health and safety regulations
- You are competent at writing reports and giving presentations to managers and clients
Whilst technical terms and qualifications are essential, they should not detract the reader from the person skills you bring to an organisation.
