Set your “career” goal. Just wanting an engineering job is a fine goal in and of itself however someone who has a vision for his career and a clear goal set in front of them, has something extra going for them. Setting your own career goals will also keep you focused and move towards a career path that you design for yourself. This will help you stay on track and remind you of what you want and what you are working towards.
Get your resume ready! If you’re a recent grad or need some basic resume guidance, start with our tips on how to write a winning resume. Update your job history, take a new profile picture, and highlight your skills and strengths, because this is the first thing your future employer will see on your profile. If you have a Spanish resume that’s great, however for an international engineering career you have to have an English version of your resume as well. And make sure to check the spelling as well.
Learn English! As you know, we have every type of engineering job for talented English speaking professionals. But what if your English skills are non-existent or not what they should be? It means that even though you might be a talented engineer, you won’t be able to communicate with international colleagues. It also means is that it’s time to learn English. Do you know how fluent you would be within a year if you spent 5 minutes a day learning English? Try a great online tool like DUOLINGO, which will help you learn English in just 5 minutes a day. They even have a mobile app so you can learn anytime you have 5 minutes. And guess what? It’s FREE. That’s right, you have no excuse not to.
Keep up your energy, determination, positive attitude. Be ready for a phone call, Skype, or other communication from a prospective employer. Which means don’t pick up the phone if you are half asleep, having lunch or in someplace with a lot of background noise. It’s a far better idea to let the call go to your professional voicemail and then calling back when you have had that cup a coffee, or you’re in a quieter area with good cell phone reception.
Be a Superstar. Did you get an interview? Of course you did! Now do your research and show your interest, enthusiasm and knowledge about the company you are interviewing with. Rock your interview, we’ve got your back!
