You’re a great engineer! You know the right way to design structures and you create efficient solutions for your clients. However transferring this into writing a great CV that gets you a great job can be difficult. Many people ask me

 why this is necessary? 

They say

“but surely at interview I can show my strengths and I will get the job”.  

Why a good CV gets you the job

This may be true but what happens if an employer looks at your CV and doesn’t invite you in to interview? In todays fast paced world hiring managers make decisions about whether a candidate looks suitable from a quick scan of the CV so you have to make sure that yours conveys all the relevant information concisely.

Tips to Write a GREAT CV for Civil Engineers
Tips to Write a GREAT CV for Civil Engineers 

The common mistakes of CV writing

The main mistakes people fall into are in the following categories

  • Not enough information
  • Too much information
  • Formatting that confuses
  • Too long

Luckily these are easy CV writing mistakes to rectify and once you have them mastered you’ll find that you get invited to interview more often and that you will be able to achieve a higher salary. We’ll show you how below but first let’s just state what a CV is there to do.

A CV’s sole purpose is to highlight your skills and convince a hiring manager that you can do the job so that he/she brings you in to interview!

Bearing that in mind lets address our common mistakes

Not enough information – Simple,add more information, but make sure the information is pertinent to your career. Information that should be added isabout the companies you worked for and the role you did there followed by the projects you individually worked on and your specific contribution on those projects.

Too much information – Also know as waffle! Consider the information highlighted above and cut it down to the minimum. We don’t need to know that you worked with Andy and that you formed a brilliant partnership, we need to know about you, where you worked and what you did.

Formatting – Keep it simple here too, follow the structure I’m about to outline, stick to one font at one size and use bold to highlight bits that need highlighting. Using any colour apart from black is a definite no-no!

How to structure your CV to get the job 

So we’ve covered what goes in it now lets look at how to present it to make it easy to read. The basics are again keep it simple and let it flow. I’ve laid this out as it should be on the CV with the correct formatting (see the bold and undelines) so you can copy and paste into Word.

Start at the top with your contact details, Name, email, phone number. No more and no less. If you’re in a country where age discrimination isn’t prohibited then they may ask age. In the EU it is illegal to do that so don’t add it.

Personal statement:

A paragraph of three or four sentences about who you are and where you want to get to in your professional life. Do not talk about personal stuff here! Employers don’t care if you have kids, a beautiful wife that you met 30 years ago. They care that you can do the job only write professional information here. Refer to the statement of what your CV is here to do above if in doubt.

Employment history 

Company Dates worked (include Months)
Job title

We have a couple of paragraphs here to describe to the hiring manager what you have done and the mistakes we talked about above come into play. You need to describe three things in this part and they are.

(Start with the most recent first and work backwards. Include all jobs you have done (if you have a long career then the further back you go the less relevant they are so you can cut down on the information to keep the CV concise).)

  • The company you worked for: What they do, how big they are (money and locations).
  • What your role was in the company: Responsibilities, seniority
  • Projects you worked on and responsibility there.

An example of a good CV would be:

Mott MacDonald Jan 1999 – Mar 2011
Senior Bridge engineer

Mott MacDonald is a global engineering design and management company that work on iconic projects in various sectors. Currently valued at £1.2 Billion they have offices in 140 countries.
Working in the bridge engineering department I was responsible for design calculations, project management and the mentoring of junior engineers along with making sure technicians produced engineering drawings.

Projects I was involved with:

  • The Golden Gate bridge – A two mile long cable stayed bridge in San Francisco where I designed the girders, and cable fixings
  • Bridge over another river – A 1200 meter long multi span concrete bridge where I designed the piers
  • Another project here

Projects added should be in order of importance and they should highlight all your skills. Don’t list hundreds though, just enough to demonstrate your skills.

If you read the above you now have a pretty good idea of what I have been doing which is the ultimate goal of a well written CV.


Then you need to add your Education, only tertiary qualifications as no one wants to know about how well you did in kindergarten. Laid out like below:
University name Course taken
Dates of study Qualification

Articles / Research

If you’ve published articles or written research papers then add them.

Computer Programs

Add specialist computer programs you have used. Just bullet point them

Finally add your personal interests: This is the only place you should add anything about your personal life so add a short paragraph here.

The final tip is that if possible keep your CV to two pages. If you’ve had a long career or have been a contractor then that maybe difficult so the rule can be broken for things like that. But beware about straying because people don’t have the attention span to read long documents. They will make a decision about whether to interview you by time they have finished the first two pages so make sure these pages are loaded with all the correct info.

If it does get too long or if you really want to highlight projects then consider taking out the detail of the projects and adding them to a separate portfolio. Here you can add screen shots of designs, photos of the project, calculation examples etc.  Bearing in mind a picture paints a thousand words portfolios are worth millions!

If you have any questions use the comments section below and I’d love to hear any CV writing tips you have that you think I’ve missed.

Good luck in your job-hunting too!

A permanent year-round ice hotel opened to the public in Swede. The resort, known as “Ice-Hotel-365”, hosts 55 rooms, including 20 suites, and is made up of 30,000 liters of frozen water from the Torne River. The hotel uses a solar-powered refrigerating plant used to keep the ice and snow that make up the hotel frozen.

Guests at the hotel will have the opportunity to create their own ice sculpture, swim in the Torne River, sauna and observe an ice gallery from the over forty artists, designers and architects from nine different countries that will melt back into the river and eventually be replaced.

“They also have the opportunity to follow the artists who are finalizing sculpturing their suites, and meet builders, designers and creators – the people who during the past months have endeavored and created ICEHOTEL-365”, Icehotel CEO Yngve Bergqvist said.

Location of ICE Hotel - 365

IceHotel-365 is located 200 kilometers north of the Arctic circle in Jukkasjärvi, has been built to a fresh blueprint each year, using 5,000 tons of ice taken from the nearby River Torne in the spring and cold-stored over the summer.

Hang on !!! There's lot more in IceHotel-365

Sections of the hotel will continue to melt and be rebuilt as usual -- meaning there will still be fresh new icy artworks for guests to enjoy each year.

More than 40 artists, designers and architects from nine different countries have worked on the hotel.

The need and call for energy these days have changed the mind of engineers and constructors to device such houses and buildings that take a very minimal amount of energy and utilizes the natural sources of energy available. Insulating Concrete forms abbreviated as ICFs is among one of that technique. Insulation is considered very vital in coldly areas as well as areas of heat where the heat of atmosphere is to be avoided.

In Insulating Concrete Forms ICFs, the concrete is placed within two layers of insulating material, resulting in cast-in-place concrete walls. These walls might be a bit thicker from the traditional walls but can look similar by applying similar finishing coats of paint etc on the interior as well as exterior face of the walls.

The ICFs can be used as walls for residential , commercial as well as industrial buildings. The superior insulation, air tightness, and mass of the walls can reduce the cost of operating HVAC in the building by up to 40%. Concrete buildings survive high-force winds like hurricanes far better than wood or metal frame buildings. When properly reinforced, they should also withstand earthquakes well.

Of all construction materials, concrete is one of the most resistant to heat and fire. Experience shows that concrete structures are more likely to remain standing through fire than are structures of other materials.

Insulating concrete forms systems can vary in their design. "Flat" systems yield a continuous thickness of concrete, like a conventionally poured wall. The wall produced by "grid" systems has a waffle pattern where the concrete is thicker at some points than others. "Post and beam" systems have just that – discrete horizontal and vertical columns of concrete that are completely encapsulated in foam insulation. Whatever their differences, all major ICF systems are engineer-designed, code-accepted, and field-proven.
