ResumesI decided to use a less traditional, flashier resume layout for each because it is not similar to other resumes and stands out while keeping a professional appearance. While traditional resumes are expected to have large amounts of white space, Ihave packed information onto mine as I have been instructed by advisors and professors in my industry as the standard. I wrote both of my objective statements similarly, indicating the desire for the specific position with the company the resume isdirected towards.In my resume to the Michael Baker Corporation, I felt that my technical skills developed from my education and work experience was the most important asset when applying for this more technologically advanced design associate position. Imodified the order of the resume to focus on my technical skills first and followed by highlighting my building informationalmodeling (BIM) experience both in the academic and professional world. I moved my technical skills above my work experience and limited my technical skills to software that is relevant to what they are requiring of their position. Eventhough it is an architectural design position, I focused more on specific qualities within the technological side of the job which they prefer.I made sure to include experience that directly is in-line with their requirements and preferences. I tried to use the sameaction words as the requirements in the job description and relatively in the same order. Within my internship at AlexanderBuilding Construction I focused more on the technological experiences I gained and less on the entry level constructionmanagement skills that I have developed. The next section of my resume is my architectural design experience that Imodified to express my use of advanced technology and independent design opportunities within an experiencedarchitecture team. Finally, I included my service, activities and interests to show them the personal side of me which is a priority to this company.
