One of the most important tools you have in your contract engineering job search is your portfolio. Your portfolio is a labor of time and love, growing and evolving from the beginning of your college career to the present. Be sure to include the details of your roles and contributions to projects completed in school and jobs. Capture each step of the contract design engineering process through planning, organizing, resource allocation and actual project execution, including photos from each increment as the project unfolds.
Remember that the more details you include in your portfolio, the easier it will be for your potential employer to pinpoint your skill sets. It is also your chance to demonstrate your ability and diligence to accurately document your work. Keep your portfolio up to date to prevent scrambling when your dream contract engineering job opens up.
