Steer away from standard bland resumes. Research the company you are applying for, and read the job specs carefully, Tweak your resume to fit meet the jobs specs as much as possible. Make it precis.

Only suggestion, remember the first screen is some HR clerk, so consider how to think past them. This would include a simple cover letter. Second if you are asking for advice on EEtimes, them I am concerned you may need to reflect why would someone consider hiring you if you need our advice?

I think sometimes it is good to ensure the language and terminology being used in your resume is similar to that being used in the job posting to which you are responding. The person initially seeing your resume at the company may be less technical than the person you finally work for, so being able to express your skills in their langauge can be helpful.

And, please, please, please, research the companies you interview with. You are better prepared to answer the interviewers questions and it demonstrates that you are interested enough in the company and job to spend some time up front. As a hiring manager, I find it more difficult to assess a candidate if I can't ask questions specific to my business. Yes, a good engineer can adapt to just about any situation, but as the person doing the hiring, I want to make sure that someone that I hire wants to adapt to MY company.

If at first you don't succeed, try dressing up as Batman and threaten the interviewer in dark alleys. How you get him to the dark alley - I trust in your sapience.

I am confused. Should one pump fists before or after the deal is sealed?

Also would not hurt to dye your hair darker if you happen to have any gray ones.

Work Experience, if the job spec somewhat matches what you worked on for three years.

if you are good in fundamentals, doesnt matter where you write about courses in your resume, either before or after the work experience, prepare well and you might land up in the job. But to answer your question straight, training shouldbe after your work experience.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
