I'm applying for engineering jobs which for the most part have extensive experience in Solidworks as an essential requirement.
However, the package I have experience in is SolidEdge. Now, I know that the two are extremely similar, and I wouldn't need any extra training to start using Solidworks straight away. Any mechanical engineer would also know this as would the manager obviously.
I have no idea if the very first person (the recruiter) who looks at my cover letter knows, or would it go straight in the bin if they don't see the exact name? Do I have to write something like "SolidEdge (similar/comparable to Solidworks)"?
Small point I know, but I'm just trying to streamline my cover letters and avoid insulting the reader's intelligence.
