Graduate Electronic and Computer Engineering Resume and Cover Letter
My client presented with exceptional technical capabilities and had recently completed a bachelor’s degree to support their integration into the electronic and computer engineering industry. A highly specialised and technical area, I spent ample time discussing the client’s strengths and career ambitions. With no particular role in mind but knowing a graduate career opportunity would be the ideal steppingstone, I conducted further research into the current market to ensure the client’s documents would be appropriately tailored.
To highlight the client’s competence and industry knowledge, we placed focus on an industry placement and associated project. Using a SAO (Situation, Action, Outcome) approach meant that the broad range of expertise applied here was able to be highlighted. In addition to the project, we also focused on a number of essential skills. These included;
- ENGINEERING AND TECHNICAL
- PROJECT AND TIME MANAGEMENT
- COMMUNICATION AND INTERPERSONAL
- ADMINISTRATIVE AND ORGANISATIONAL
By ensuring that industry terms and keywords were integrated into the resume and cover letter, I provided the client with confidence that a future employer would clearly recognise he was ready for this early stage of his career. Being that the client also had previous experience in an administrative capacity, transferrable skills were also featured, thus presenting the client as a highly competent and desirable industry professional.
