Much depends on the kind of job you are looking for. You may want to assemble several resumes focused on different aspects.

In engineering, you probably have over 10 yrs experience. Should be a senior engineer or a supervisor. Write your resume to feature those aspects. Some value experience at major employers in the field. Do get them listed.

Then network. Track down the people you have met in your career. Especially those who think you do a good job. Contact them. Let them know you are looking for a job. Are they hiring at their place of employment. Who is the hiring manager? Contact him or her. Send resume. Who is hiring in their area?

You probably know 100 such people by now. This might take a while, but its a good use of your job search time.

If you are a member of professional societies, don't forget to network through them. Some have employment bureaus. Again its more people to contact and ask about job opportunities.

Good luck. Good hunting.

Note there is an engineering discussion board in Fooldom. You might try posting your question there too.
