  • People skills: A big mistake that some candidates make is that they focus the entirety of their CVs on technical and practical skills and completely neglect the more “human side” of the job. The reality is that, as a Civil Engineer, you will be working with a variety of people on a daily basis including engineering staff, third-party contractors, temporary staff, construction personnel, etc. It is, therefore, recommended that you allocate a big part of your CV to your social, interpersonal, persuasion, communication, team-working and management skills by giving real-world examples.

Good Luck!
