Civil Engineering CV

Civil engineering CVs should be tailored to suit the organization and the position being applied to. Avoid using the same CV for different applications as most recruiters like to see a CV resume that is tailored for their organization. Civil engineers can get jobs in various areas and under various organizations e.g. water, sewerage, building and construction and telecommunication.

When applying to a specific organization carry out extensive research about the organization and the job for which you intend to apply. You may then embark on compiling your civil engineering CV with this information in mind. Tailor your civil engineering CV to suit the needs of the employer. Employers will be impressed with a CV that shows a clear understanding of the organization’s needs and objectives.
