Contents Notes
One lesson of the tough employment market of the 1990s is that every job-seeker needs a resume customized to highlight his or her particular strengths in powerful and effective terms. This is particularly important for scientists and engineers, who until now have enjoyed a "buyer's" market. In this major revision of her popular resource for scientists and engineers, Adele Lewis joined forces with scientist and writer David J. Moore to show technical professionals how to prepare resumes to fit the special requirements of their professions. Whether you're targeting an entry-level job or a top management position, Best Resumes for Scientists and Engineers gives you everything you need to create the kind of standout resume technical employers are looking for, including all the basic elements that go into writing an effective resume - style, content, format, word choice, clearly defined objectives, career summaries, and more; worksheets that take you step-by-step through the resume writing process; ten powerful resume formats; more than seventy-five sample resumes for twenty-five different hi-tech industries; tips on what you should and shouldn't say in a cover letter; five simple steps that will improve your chances of landing an interview.
