Data center design mechanical engineer resume questions
May 29, 2014 9:08 PM Subscribe
I want to work with a tech company working on the design of data centers! I am very interested in the heat transfer, efficiency, environmental impacts and general mechanical design that goes into data centers. I have a few connections to a couple of the big tech companies here in Seattle and don't want to waste my opportunity. How should I shape my resume and what skills should I highlight?

I am a mechanical engineer that worked for an electrical construction engineering company (mass electric) in college. The last five years I have worked as a naval nuclear reactor engineer for the department of defense. My recent experience is primarily with shielding design/installation, high risk detector replacement and "trouble desk engineering". Unfortunately, I doubt the specialized radiation and contamination knowledge will be helpful except for the mindset.
What key skills should I highlight on my resume for data center design? Obviously, heat transfer and fluid dynamic experience would be great but i don't have a huge amount besides school. I am strong on the mechanical statics/moment type design and fabrication. I interact with work crew wells, and the paperwork I write has had to be extremely detailed and be able to be followed with 100% verbatim compliance.
I would be happy to send my current "generic" resume to anyone.
