How to Write an Outstanding Engineering Resume - This Blog from IDC's Steve Mackay gives some excellent tips on creating an Engineering Resume - I believe we have all had what we considered an excellent resume (cv) rejected at some time or other in our career. While I am not suggesting that you need to leave your current good job; it is good to keep in mind what is required and perhaps, in these uncertain times, to help a buddy who may need some support in writing his or her resume. This skill is vital whether you are an electrician or a chief engineer. If you do an Internet search for ‘resume or cv writing’, you will have thousands of links – all guaranteeing you a top job. This short note is to help you create a winning engineering cv with a business edge. Which I believe is vital to success.
How to Ask for a Salary Increase - Steve Mackay - IDC Technologies -One thing that we as engineering professionals tend to shy away from, is asking for a raise or an increase in fees for services we deliver to clients. Engineers and technicians tend to enjoy and focus on the engineering and technical issues and generally get short changed on their fees and salaries. We get enormous satisfaction from doing technical things but contemplating our fee or hourly rate is often considered demeaning and unprofessional (and indeed for most of us, it can be somewhat boring).
However, there does come a time when you need to consider the fact that you may be underpaid. Even in tough times, you may be making an incredible contribution to your company’s success or providing a client with some incredible value in terms of service.
