  • Technical Abilities: Some applicants are afraid to get “technical” on their CVs in the fear that the prospective employer may not understand their technical terminologies. However, a Manufacturing Engineer’s job is a high-skilled position which requires specialised training and a learned skill-set to perform the work. The only effective way to convey your knowledge and expertise in this field is to mention these advanced skills, methods and processes. Prospective employers are quite understanding of this and will generally not object to this; as long as you don’t overdo it.

Good Luck!
