Resume Competition

Rules – Coming Soon

In the IEEE Region 3 Resume Competition, IEEE students will compete to have their resume reviewed by as many reviewers as possible in a set time period. It will be on the students to find reviewers and set up a review of their resume. The resume review can occur over phone or any other conference platform of their choice (i.e. Skype, Google Meet, Zoom). Students will compete individually and there is no limit on the amount of students that can compete from a single student branch. Any Region 3 student with an IEEE student membership is allowed to participate. This includes graduate students.

The scoring process of this competition will be based on the assumption that the quality of a resume will be correlated with the amount of reviews the resume receives. Therefore, students will earn a set amount of points for every review they receive. The amount of points will be dependent on the category of the reviewer (i.e. student, IEEE Section member, University faculty/staff, etc.). A full list of reviewer categories and their points will be detailed in the competition rules.

Criteria for a resume review will be detailed in the rules. The amount of time spent on the review and the student’s reflection on the review will be part of the criteria. The students will be expected to submit proof of their review to the Resume Competition. Details of how to submit proof of the review will be found in the Resume competition rules.
