As a hiring manager, I've seen hundreds of CVs for quality engineers. It's a role which requires a mix of technical and problem-solving skills. These professionals ensure products meet standards, streamline production, and solve any issues that come up. Their CVs need to shine with accuracy and show their knack for perfection. They also have to convince me, the recruiter, they're right for the job, in just one or two pages.

Most quality engineers begin their careers as quality technicians or quality assistants. Their journey is peppered with continuous learning, as they must stay up-to-date with industry advancements. As we headed into the mid-twenties, we saw a rise in automation and AI tools designed to help these professionals. By 2024, we expect quality engineers to be adept in these new technologies, with their CV reflecting this trend.

Now, let's clarify one thing. You might have read online about a contest between CVs and resumes. In fact, they're not different at all. For jobs like quality engineering, CVs and resumes are simply different names for the same 1-2 page document. Only for roles focused on research or academia, where publications are key, might you find a CV stretching to 3-4 pages.

In this article, we're getting down to the nuts and bolts of writing an effective quality engineer CV. We'll walk you through some excellent templates for 2024, and shine a light on the skills that will make your CV stand out from the pile. You'll learn how to craft a CV that reflects your capabilities, and hopefully, one that lands you an interview. So, let's get started.
