Hi! I've reached my 3rd year of undergrad in ME and I've reached that point where I'm applying for just about any internship that is a) paid and b ) mentions an engineering degree. I am at a happy point where I honestly don't care what the work is, as long as its a job that applies mechanical engineering principles. The idea is for me to explore the careers available with the degree.. right? Anyway, I've noticed that seemingly EVERYONE uses a computer-automated resume parsing utility that basically stores all of your info and then gives you the finger. My question is two-fold: How do I increase my odds of beating the resume-software gateway, and how do I find out who to actually talk to? I'm not afraid to make a phone call or 10 if it could land me a job, but companies (rightly, I suppose) hide their HR department contact information. I've tried to revise my resume with each submission in order to match my skills summary to the skills desired in the posting (truthfully of course. I simply change the verbs or mention experience I didn't consider important before) in order to catch as many keywords as possible. So, what am I supposed to do?
