Job Description: I need someone to help edit my resume and standard cover letter to take them to the next level. I recently got my master's degree in Electrical Engineering and have 5+ years experience. I am ideally looking for a job in a small company where I can do hands-on hardware/electronics engineering. I am only getting a few call-backs from companies (even when I know I am meeting the qualifications), so I need help putting the right keywords in my resume to get past automated resume screeners (this might require some Internet research). In addition, I would like some suggestions on formatting, layout, and content to make it more appealing to human readers. I have a couple of cover letters that I use, depending on the job and formality of my initial contact. I need help with my formal cover letter content and wording to make it more exciting to read for recruiters. I will provide my current resume and an example of a recent cover letter that I used. You will have to edit both of them for formatting/layout, content (keywords), spelling, and grammar. Timeline: - 3 business days for both resume and cover letter. Your responsibilities: - Read, edit, and format a resume and cover letter - Some Internet research might be necessary to understand keywords Your qualifications: - Very good written English - Experience editing resumes and cover letters - Understanding of technical (ideally electrical engineering) terminology and keywords - Broadband Internet connection - Ability to meet deadlines - Strong communication skills and attention to detail a must - A complete Elance profile - References or an established reputation on Elance preferred Important: -If you merely copy and paste the title of this job then your response will be ignored. -If your response does not sound like it was written just for me then it will be ignored.
