How can I mention it on my resume that I have a history of giving a nice performance with job duties of which I had no prior experience or knowledge.

For example, being an electronics engineer I had no knowledge of automobile engine technology but I did well in tasks involving knowledge of automobile technology.

Basically I want to send reader a message that I am not afraid of new things and can perform quite well.

Stucked on this: history of working well with new concepts

  • I think that readers of your resume may be able to tell that, given your Degree is on EE and that you list past jobs on other areas, you are well capable of that, no need to remark it.

  • Also, readers may be able to figure this themselves, given the OP lists his Degree and the jobs he has performed (and his reviews) that are evidently not related to the degree.
