Physically Challenged (Engineering) Resume

The resume of a physically challenged engineer should start with an effective career objective that serves as a title to the resume. The objective plays a major role in attracting the attention of the reader and thus one must spend a considerable amount of time framing one. It should project only career related interests and goals of the candidate, while stating the fact that he/she is physically challenged. Engineering is a vast field with several job opportunities in its sub-sectors, and many amongst them are friendly for those who are physically disabled. It's all about marketing your profile. You need to lay down the most significant information pertaining to your educational and professional background, while introducing the recruiter to your strengths. It is important that every resume bears the essence of personalization and specification. It is therefore advised that you contact the employer prior to drafting your application, in order to discuss their needs. This will give you an evident picture as to what and how you are supposed to present your profile.

In the Key Skills section, you need to include 5-6 points focusing on your technical qualities and capabilities pertaining to the specified sector within the field of engineering. Do remember to cut down on the most general skill sets while doing so. Bulleted information draws attention without fail, and one can successfully sustain it if its contents hold utmost relevance to the expectations of the employer. While you're describing your work experience, strive to establish an evident link between your previous professional experience and the specifications of the job that you are now seeking. You may choose to include the job descriptions for each employer in this section or you may select and further filter the information to leave you with 4-5 points that you can include along with 3-4 of your major skill sets as a profile summary, immediately following your career objective. As the reader is a busy recruiter who is chained to the task of reviewing a thousand applications, it is ideal that you keep your resume to one page only, thus respecting the busy schedule of the recruiter. However, if you have ample of information to mention, then adding a second page is advisable rather than cutting down on some essential details.

Given below is a free sample of an engineer resume (physically disabled), for your reference. Study how the information has been laid out in a uniform manner. You may also include a section to include the information of any rewards or awards that you have earned so far, provided that they're not commonplace accomplishments. Include references only if the employer has specified; else, simply mention "Available upon request".
