Hi everyone, I am currently working as a mechanical engineer with 1 year work experience. I have a really strong resumé (achievements) and I would like to work a remote job opportunity. I am interested not only in engineer roles, but also in tech, finance and software. I have attached the front page of my resumé to this message.

Can I get advice on where I can apply or if you can directly assist me I would truly appreciate it.

Resumes like this usually don’t make it past the screening bots that companies use. I suggest going for a more simple look without the extra formatting and picture.

Are you confident that your resume is really good? Goes against what most universities in America would recommend. But I know things can be pretty different per country.

Thank you for everyone responding. I really appreciate the feedback. I will then change my resumé to eliminate the unnecessary information and make it much more relevant! 💪

I’d say it’s best to use LinkedIns feature for job search and ticking the remote positions filter.
Then view international recruitment firms. Thereafter review companies with a global presence.
Finally if you have any expat friends in relevant career areas then reach out to them.

Alle voorspoed

Hou aan om uit te reik en bly positief

You might want to consider a one-year masters in the UK. While the degree will be useless, it will give you a year to network

Thanks for the advice

If you are interested in finance, I would consider creating a finance resume. You can look up templates online.

Great idea! I really appreciate it!

If we are talking about layout then something like this might work in the tech world but a more professional looking resume allows you to get past the robot filtering. They unfortunately don't recognize resume like yours. It is also standard practice to not have your photo on your resume.

For the material on the resume you have achievements but one year experience is not much and after a certain point achievements in uni don't matter. Depending on your resume, network, ability to interview, another person with far less acedemic achievements can get a better opportunity than you.

I would suggest looking at templates for industry you want to go into from Harvard or other big unis or even the ones your school has. Try networking on LinkedIn, honestly sometimes just physically going to the office you want a job at can work.

I'm materials engineer in the mining industry who has been working since 14 while being a 1st gen immigrant. I'm just speaking out of experience and I hope that helps!

Focus on LinkedIn networking. Do not use remote filters. The resume needs a total overhaul. Humans like to read left to right and no need for a photo.

Hello 👋🏽

First post on here!

Professional in the Midwest with 5 years experience. Recently got an offer for a fully-remote (main benefit I want) Senior Business Systems Analyst role at $112k base + 10% Bonus + Equity Grant of $20k in the next 4 years (basically an additional $5k / year).

This seems more than in line with the national average for this position.

My main counter that I would like to ask for is a $10k Signing-Bonus.

Is the Equity Grant basically the Signing-Bonus?
