Aeronautical Engineering/Career Advice

Question
My father has worked on aircraft structures for more than twenty years at the same company, and is considering leaving that company. He has worked as an engineer during that time - never as a manager. He's unsure how to find new job opportunities and convey his experience to potential employers in a resume and cover letter. Do you have any advice for him?

Answer
He can go on line and get information on how to write a resume and see examples. If he finds one he likes he can copy the style. Resumes should be short and sweet and highlight the persons great experience and strengths. See linkedin.com for resume information and job opportunities.
