Estimator Resume

Various project based and contract based organizations, which bid for projects in the market, require the experience and expertise of estimators who evaluate the estimated amount that a particular company should bid for a particular project. The efficiency with which an estimation is done decides whether the organization wins or loses the bid. Hence, the position of estimator is of high value and importance.

Employers are specifically very choosy when it comes to this position, as it involves high responsibilities and risk. A good estimator resume sample will portray the applicant's estimation abilities, educational background, and prior experience in good depth, so that the employer gets a clear idea of the applicant's profile which would increase the chances of the applicant receiving the interview call. Achievements, if any, should also be mentioned in good detail in the resume, as they help to increase the overall value of the resume .

The applicant needs to have a bachelor's degree in finance. It would help the estimator resume greatly to become more unique and persuasive if the person has a master's degree and relevant job experience to mention. Below is an estimator resume sample.
