First off, do you have experience in project management? I would assume you do if you're planning to sit for the PMP. Make sure to highlight (and possibly rewrite) your resume to emphasize project management experience - especially in areas of the PMP and/or Agile methodologies.

Definitely highlight that on your resume. You want to look at all your experience in the vein of hitting the job requirements for a PM, especially if you're changing from an engineer role.

What I recommend doing if you're changing roles is to read several postings for PM roles you might want. See what skills/experience come up again and again. Then take a hard look at your resume and think of how your previous positions hit those roles. Sometimes you have to rewrite the job experience to highlight the PM specific stuff.

In your case, I'd also list a PMI membership under professional organizations, and mention somewhere in the cover letter or summary that you plan on sitting for the PMP as many jobs really really want that certification. Good luck!
