When youre reviewing your old professional resume, you want to make sure it meets current standards and follows accepted best practices. Weve gathered a team of experienced resume experts to look over this Electronics Engineering Technician resume sample and make suggestions to key improvements.
Use the Proper Professional Summary Format
While the information is excellent, the applicant fails to follow the accepted summary format of 4 to 6 longer phrases in a paragraph form. As in the revision below, cover your professional experience, relevant skill sets and compelling personal qualities: Electronics Engineering Tech with over 16 years experience in technical support to onsite repair and full customization to meet the customer specifications as well as over 9 years experience handling Technical and Customer service requests. Knowledgeable professional who has worked with industry leaders including Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Halliburton, NavAir, SAIC, and the Navy. Electronics expert proficient with circuit boards, processors, chips, electronic equipment, and computer hardware and software in addition to machine and tool design, use, repair, and maintenance. Trained professional with practical application of engineering science and technology skill set.
Consolidate the Qualifications and Skills Sections
In the sample, the applicant includes a qualifications and skills section, but these sections are interchangeable. As such, the resume only calls for one of the two with the option of an accomplishments section for those with measurable and notable professional achievements. Keeping in mind that each column calls for 3 to 8 bullets, a combined qualifications and skills section might look like: Highlights
Dont Overcrowd Experience Entries
The applicants experience section is in excellent shape as far as formatting and content. However, he overcrowds the experience entries with far too many bullets. Each entry only calls for 5 to 8 bullets, so the applicant should choose the details that will be most applicable to the new position. For current entries, start phrases with a present tense verb. Otherwise, use past tense verbs. A revised first entry would be: Electronics Engineering Technician August 2011 to Current Systel, Inc ? Houston, TX
List Relevant Education in Reverse Chronological Order
Because this applicant has educational experience above the high school level, he doesnt need to list his diploma information. He should include dates for his other entries and organize them in reverse chronological order. Additionally, he should bullet any listed coursework or educational details like so: Education Computer Science 2004 Southern Methodist University ? Dallas, TX, United States Continuing Professional Education
Computer Science, 2000 Wharton County Junior College ? Wharton, TX, United States Continuing Professional Education
Dont submit your professional document before spending ample time revising, proofreading and editing it, because even the smallest or most innocuous mistakes can significantly detract from your professional first impression.
