Education : List most recent degree first.

Activities : Campus and community activities, memberships in professional organizations. Job seekers from the civil engineering field often write general statements that lack the use of numerical to describe important items like the size and value of projects or number of staff supervised. They also assume that anyone in the civil industry will know what they have done and the depth of their skills just by reading their job title. However, both are erroneous assumptions and can result in poor resume response.

For Example consider the following description of an essential experience.

Crew Lead
  • Supervised general labor, carpentry and drywall workers.
  • Worked with General Contractor to estimate projects and develop proposals.
  • Managed daily project completion and trades coordination.
And here is the more appropriate and efficient way to put your experience.

Construction Site Management
  • Annually, managed construction of residential and commercial building projects of value $20 million.
  • Supervised crews of up to 25 master carpenters, journeymen, drywall hangers, foundation and general labor personnel.
  • Estimated project costs, performed take-offs and developed project proposals working directly with the General Contractor.

Add Keywords : Use action-words, verbs, adverbs, adjectives in your descriptions and terms specific to your job in the resume. For example ASCE, Concrete Design, Preliminary Stress Analysis, Hydrology Trans Analysis etc. Do not use abbreviations or acronyms unless you define them.
