Here’s what a recruiter is looking for in a Product Engineer resume
- Appropriate resume sections: Your resume should include a header, summary, experience, skills, and education section.
- Relevant experience: What types of products have you engineered? What industry did you work in? Which parts of the product life cycle were you involved in?
- Revenue generated: How successful were your products? How do they compare to competitors?
- Ability to work cross-functionally: Product Engineers often have to work with many internal teams, as well as suppliers and manufacturers. Recruiters want to know you're able to communicate and work well with others.
- Education: In your product engineer resume, you need to include an education section. Often, Product Engineer jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree, if not masters. Include which type of engineering you studied.
PRO TIPDon't make the same mistake everyone else does. What we mean is don't list your job responsibilities instead of your achievements. Recruiters know what a Product Engineer does. They want to know what kind of difference you can bring to their company. Focus on what you've accomplished.
