Working on a resume that will hopefully take me from Cell/Gene therapy development engineering into life science consulting. I would really appreciate some feedback on the resume when it’s wrapped up.

Any advice while I’m building it or feedback once it’s done would be appreciated!

Consulting is all about a problem and a solution. Make sure to not just list responsibilities but rather describe a solution you delivered and the value you brought. Example: Implemented X to reduce overall R&D cycle time by Y% saving $Z million a year for the function

Thoughts on updating my LinkedIn profile to be more problem/solution/result as well? I’m assuming interviewers will check LinkedIn and right now it’s very technical and specific to my expertise area. I doubt a business related person would be able to interpret into business metrics.

I’m in a specialist group with only a few other associates in my office. I know for a fact I outperform (and outbill) at least one of them, and the others are at different levels than I am so different metrics. I feel like the partner in my office gives me a way harder time on things than other associates not in my office and I’m held to a way higher standard than the others. Any recommendations on how to stop beating myself up/address the issue?
