Hey Diovane, Overall a great start. I think you added a bit too much information in the description for school and not enough information and details for your experience and extracurricular. ------------------------------ Daniel Bressler EIT, A.M.ASCE Structural Engineer Brooklyn NY ...

Srushti, Bedore I start, it looks like you do a lot of extracurriculars and have very good experience and grades! I have to write the comments here instead of marking up your resume because there is no space. So my first comment would be to let your resume breathe. There is simply too much ...

Hey Sreelakshmi, It looks like you're doing a lot of great work and are very passionate which does translate, simply work on organizing all that information into a readable page (or two). Please see attached marked-up Resume. There was a lot of information on the resume so I wasn't able ...

That's interesting. I put EIT on my resume after I passed my FE to indicate that I was working towards getting licensed. I never really thought about it as an official title. I only added EIT after my name when I went to an interview and the engineer recommended I add it to draw attention to my ...

I just got the email from NCEES saying I passed the PE exam! Woohoo! Yippee! Naturally I posted this update on LinkedIn to brag (not even humbly). An old coworker reached out and said he noticed I changed my title to PE on LinkedIn and wanted to know how NYS processed my PE exam from NCEES so quickly. ...

Should there be a engineering law course taught in school? After all we are signing legal documents. I would argue that we use our stamps/seal/prescription pad more than other professions yet many engineers, like myself, were never taught what signing means and the liability it holds. I did ...

So how did everyone do on this past year's resolution? Did you learn something new? Acquire a new skill? For me, I completed my master's and got my paperwork in to take my PE! ------------------------------ Daniel Bressler EIT, A.M.ASCE Structural Engineer Brooklyn NY ------ ...

I've attached my resume for review. I've been working for a little more than 4 years now so I figured it's time I updated my resume. Previously my resume was a little cramped (I probably felt the need to over compensate because I was starting out,) so I made a few changes. Please advise on the ...

I don't think I can turn off the engineering part of my brain. When I go on family trips I have a spreadsheet showing, where we're staying, travel times, and destinations as well as a column for comments. I even factor in that some of my family members drive slower (and others leave late) so I ...

Firstly, thank you to everyone who responded with the links and resources. I wanted to provide an update since I posted this. Since posting, I took some time away from studying completely just to give myself some breathing room and lighten the pressure since I just completed my master's. I shouldn't ...

Thank you for the idea. I haven't registered for an exam date yet because my application is still in review. Once approved I will set a date. ------------------------------ Daniel Bressler EIT, A.M.ASCE Structural Engineer Brooklyn NY ------------------------------

I just became eligible to start taking PE. I asked around what resources people used and found out how long people usually study and came up with a study plan. For some reason, I feel like I'm stuck and can't get motivated to start studying in earnest. I'll study a little here and there but ...

Oscar Wilde famously said that 'with age comes wisdom'. The whole quote is actually, "With age comes wisdom, but sometimes age comes alone," but that's a topic for another day. I was wondering: Can the more experienced engineers please share some wisdom and life lessons they learned ...

I'd be curious if any students could respond to this prompt. What is something that you're looking for in an internship? Are you there to learn a new skill or are you there to understand what the "real world" is like? I think a healthy balance of the two would be the best solution but ...

KhaTu, A very good resume with a lot in there. I would comb through your experience" sections and try to be more concise with your bullet points. Your resume seems overwhelming when first opened. I made some edits but feel free to send it back again once you go through it. Here are some ...
