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 March 22 – March 26. All submitted resumes will be reviewed by coaches and receive a response by March 29 on the thread.
The team of career coaches brings a diversity of experience and wealth of knowledge to the process.
Meet the ASCE Resume Workshop coaches:

Best Resume Tip? Think of your resume objectively. If you were looking to hire, would you hire you?
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received? You create your own outcomes.
Anything is possible if you keep the end goal in mind and break down your tasks into quantifiable objectives.
What's the best career advice you've ever received? The best career advice I ever received was from a Drexel Alumnus and the advice was to apply for the BS/MS Accelerated Degree program at my university. 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 and I might not have applied to the program if it wasn't for that advice! Generally speaking, I recommend that you connect with alumni from your school, preferably one who studied the same major as you as they have some great advice for you that is specific to your school!
Christopher Seigel, P.E., M.ASCE, Civil Engineer
Best Resume Tip? Let your resume “tell the story you want to tell about yourself.” This includes organizing your information in a certain way, and including specific information tailored to each opportunity you are pursuing.
What's the best career advice you've ever received? Choose a career that you care about, that interests you, or that you believe in. You will likely spend a lot of time in it. To quote Alan Watts: “This is the real secret of life ‐ to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”
Heidi C. Wallace, P.E., M.ASCE, Professional Engineer
Best resume tip: Make it organized in a way that information can be found at a glance
What's the best career advice you've received? Apply to companies with the kind of company culture and atmosphere you want to work in
