Using Keywords in your Engineering Job Search
Author: Joe Haun
You have probably noticed that there are far more applicants applying for every job listing. The recession has been extremely rough on some career fields like Civil Engineering. Yes, the number of new jobs has not been sufficient for the number of individuals seeking employment. In this environment, you need an edge to set yourself apart. One of the best strategies is to use industry specific keywords or buzz words in both your Cover Letter and Resume.
After making sure the grammar and spelling is correct, the next most important step is to compose the Cover Letter and Resume to match the job postings qualifications. The best method to accomplish this is by infusing the documents with keywords and keywords phrases. Much like the action verbs which have been the standard for resumes, keywords have become just as important. Keywords and Keyword phrases are normally nouns that are job-specific, profession-specific and/or industry-specific. The buzz words can be related to skills, technological terms and descriptions of technical expertise (including hardware and software in which you are proficient), job titles, certifications, names of products and services, and industry buzzwords and jargon. They may also include types of degrees and names of colleges and company names. Awards you have won and names of professional organizations to which you belong can even be used as keywords.
A list of keywords and keyword phrases can be created using several techniques. Some of the more common techniques are: Go here to read this entire article

Computer models of tornadoes show possible sheltering region behind hills
Using 3-D computer models, University of Arkansas researchers have demonstrated the influence of hills on tornadoes. Their models revealed that the height of a hill and the size of a tornado’s vortex have a significant effect on the tornado’s destructive power. The findings could be used to identify safer areas for construction. Read more at [...]
UF Research Team Surveys Tornado Damage
University of Florida researchers are evaluating the damage done after a powerful tornado ravaged Moore, Okla. UF engineering professor David Prevatt and his team of civil engineering students traveled to the city a few days after the storm that killed almost 30 people and injured nearly 400 others.

Making cities more resilient in the face of natural disasters
Short-sighted design is at the root of much of the destruction caused by environmental crises, whether it is flooding, earthquakes, tsunamis or other natural disasters. Buildings and critical infrastructure fail because they were not originally designed to withstand today’s intensified force of Mother Nature. However, technology can provide governments and engineers with essential feedback, offering [...]
