From Classroom to Career: An Environmental Engineering Success Story

published on 19 October 2023

In the competitive world of environmental engineering jobs, standing out from the crowd can be daunting. This was the exact challenge faced by C G, a recent graduate of Environmental Engineering. Despite her academic prowess, she found herself at a crossroads. She had a passion for planning rather than the more traditional engineering roles but lacked the real-world experience to make her mark.

This is where My CV Consultant stepped in, providing a bespoke resume writing service that helped her bridge the gap between her academic achievements and the professional world. Our team of experts worked closely with C G to understand her strengths, aspirations, and the unique value she could bring to the environmental planning sector.

Our approach was twofold. Firstly, we ensured that her extensive academic experience was not just mentioned but celebrated in her CV. As a recent graduate, we highlighted her deep understanding of the field, commitment to the environment, and unique perspective. We made it clear that C G was not just a potential candidate but a promising professional with a wealth of knowledge ready to be applied.

Secondly, we positioned C G's lack of direct work experience as an advantage rather than a disadvantage. We emphasised her adaptability, fresh ideas, and readiness to learn and grow. We also drew attention to her transferable skills, such as project management, problem-solving, and teamwork, which are highly sought after in the environmental planning sector.

The result? A CV that not only showcased C G's qualifications and skills but also highlighted her passion, drive, and potential. It was a CV that made her stand out, got her noticed, and ultimately landed her the job in environmental planning she had been dreaming of.

But don't just take our word for it. C G herself was thrilled with the service provided by My CV Consultant. In a Google review, she wrote:

"Jacqui and Lena provided me with excellent service! They went beyond their services; they coached me and helped with a great written resume. Since Jacqui helped me with my CV, I started to have interviews, and in a year like 2020, it is so essential to get noticed. I have finally landed a great job! Thank you for everything :)"
