Mechanical engineer CVs should reflect and in-depth knowledge of the field of mechanical engineering as well as extensive experience in the industry. When you apply to a specific organization, tailor your CV to suit the needs of that organization and the position for which you are applying. You can do this by finding out more information on the employer’s goals and objectives and what is expected of the person who is appointed for the job you are applying.
If you are specialized in a specific area of mechanical engineering, this would be an added advantage if the organization is seeking people with that specific skill. Here is a CV sample for a mechanical engineer.
