  • Jargon: It is generally advisable not to use any jargon or highly technical terms on your CV because you don’t know who will be reading your CV and whether those terms would mean anything to them. For certain jobs, including the Chemical Engineer role, an exception can be made because the only way you can convey your knowledge and expertise of key areas of the job is to use jargon and technical terms. Therefore, do not be afraid the mention the methods, processes and activities which are technical in nature; but be careful not to overdo it.

Good Luck!
