Civil Engineer Resume Sample

This Civil Engineer resume sample is a simplified version, giving you a basic outline to kick start ideas for your own resume.  You already understand the importance of selling yourself.  Delve deep into your work history and showcase any outstanding achievements i.e., you saved the company x amount of $$$ by implementing new procedures - something to that effect.

Use quantifiable proof mentioned above and opt for a professional, classic, and attractive layout.

Note that this Civil Engineer resume sample, indeed all these samples, are basic and in no way do they represent what your own resume could be and should be. With each example page, I add a quick “how-to” at the end that teaches you how to adjust these samples to make them your own.

Use these samples as inspiration to get you off on the right foot—and best of all, they are free.

I have also added a plain text version of the Civil Engineer resume sample below.
