As resume writers, we’re often asked about industry, and which industries are currently the most appealing. Given current economic conditions, we would recommend that you consider wisely both short and long range goals, and whether your target market is expanding or shrinking.
For example, if you are considering specialist roles such as a Telecommunication Engineer, then you need to think about entry points, and whether there is long term growth in the area you are targeting. There’s nothing worse than securing a job that becomes redundant and/or obsolete in the next few years. Instead, considering Project Engineer roles where you can potentially switch positions as the market grows.
As resume writers, we’ll need to focus on both competency skills and technical skills. It’s important we define both short and long range goals.
