Want to turn those job applications into job interviews?

It’s all about crafting the perfect resume.

The way you present your work history isn’t just important; it can be the crucial reason you get that call back for an interview.

And the ASCE Resume Workshop can help.

The workshop will be a live thread in ASCE Career by Design from November 2 – November 6. All submitted resumes will be reviewed by coaches and receive a response by November 9 on the thread.

*** You must be an ASCE Member for your resume to be reviewed. 

The team of career coaches brings a diversity of experience and wealth of knowledge to the process. 

Meet the ASCE Resume Workshop coaches: 

Doug Cantrell, P.E., PMP, Preservation and Repair Engineer
Best resume tip?
Use bullet points and effective headings to organize your resume.
What's the best career advice you've ever received?
It’s not a mistake, unless you make it twice.

Anthony Fasano, P.E., M.ASCE, Executive Coach and Trainer for Engineers 

Best resume tip? You should submit a different resume to each job you apply for. Each one should be catered to the specific needs of that company.
What's the best career advice you've ever received? Focus on the 20% of the things that drive 80% of your success, forget the rest.

Joyce Lin, EIT, Civil/Transportation Engineer
Best resume tip? Quantify your responsibilities as much as you can (we like to see the impact/results of what you did) and don’t be afraid to own up to your task (never say “assisted”)
Best career advice ever received? Make sure you understand what you’re doing and why, instead of just doing the task. Think about if what you’re designing and calculating makes sense because engineers make mistakes too.

Katie Little, Minister of Christian Service
Best resume tip? Keep it clear. Many recruiters may not spend more than a glance at it if it’s too cluttered or poorly formatted.
What's the best career advice you've ever received? Look for a job that is a good fit, but if a job doesn’t turn out the way you hoped, you can still learn from the experience and then use it as a steppingstone to a better one.
Nicolai Oliden, P.E., Project Engineer and Office Manager
Best resume tip:
Become so desirable, or network so well that you don’t need a resume.
What’s the best career advice you've ever received? 
“You don’t get paid by the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to that hour” –Jim Rohn. This has made me continually focus on what value I’m bringing to my job each day and finding ways to always improve.

Danielle Schroeder, EIT, CBSI, Associate Bridge Engineer
Best resume tip? Experience in the past should be written in past tense. If it is present experience, use present tense.
What's the best career advice you've ever received? Somewhat Drexel specific, but the best career advice I ever received from a Drexel Alumnus was to apply for the BS/MS Accelerated Degree program. To be able to graduate with both my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Civil Engineering in five years was difficult, but it made it so much easier for me to stand out when I was searching for my first full-time job.

Jennifer Sloan Ziegler, P.E., Ph.D., ENV SP, Engineer
Best resume tip? Keep your resume clean – balance white space and text.
What's the best career advice you've ever received? You need to know what you know. You need to know what you don’t know. And you need to learn to ask for help.
