The summary must be evidence! Pointing to your positive experience, do not talk, do not brag, write only facts that you can confirm. Give the results of your last work, using numbers and percentages, give links to a visual result of your activity. The simplest example: if you get a job as a secretary, then in your resume show that you know how to use word and exel. Use multi-level lists, footers, tables, and charts. But do not overdo it with formatting, use it only where it is appropriate. First of all, the resume should be official and accurate! 7) The resume should be energetic Use action verbs to characterize your experience: “arranged”, “organized”, “adjusted”, and so on. 8) Resume types: chronological (professional experience), functional (skills and professional achievements) combined (Skills and achievements are listed first. As confirmation is the list of jobs and positions). In our opinion, the combined resume is the most effective. 9) The structure of the combined summary

2. What kind of job do you want to get and or what position do you expect? And why (benefit for you and for the company) you apply for this position (no more than 6 lines, and it is better 2-3). 3. Your professional skills and achievements. 4. Work experience (dates of commencement and completion of work, name of organization, job title (there may be several, if your career has developed successfully), and briefly describe job duties and production achievements, if you have had them. When describing your achievements, use verbs actions such as developing, saving, increasing or reducing) 5. Education (the more time has passed, the less the less space this item should occupy in the resume). For newly graduated students this item should be the first. Do not forget about coursework, dissertations, research projects. 6. Additional education courses, seminars, trainings, internships (according to the above scheme).

10) If your work was of a project nature (programmer, designer), then list all your projects that lasted over one month. If the work is homogeneous or non-project in nature (manager, salesperson), then highlight in your work some features and types of work (for example, working with a specific large customer or supplier). 11) For each project, you must briefly and accurately specify: a period of time accurate to a month (approximately); place of work; name of the project (type of work, features); a brief description of the project (type of work, features) by 1-2 lines; tools used (for example, computer programs, specific technologies that may be of interest to the employer);  your role in the work you do. For example, if you are a programmer, then in the last paragraph you need to indicate what exactly you were doing, besides programming, for example, designing, developing database structure, documentation, testing, implementation, maintenance, etc.
