A resume is short and directs a reader’s attention to the aspects of a person’s background that are directly relevant to a particular position.

It is a marketing tool in which the content should be adapted to suit each individual job application or applications aimed at a particular industry like what you will read from those links: my profile and ang manlilikha.

A simple resume is a summary typically limited to one or two pages of size A4 or Letter-size highlighting only those experiences and credentials that the applicant considers most relevant to the desired position.

A simple resume should include the following:

(1) Name, location and availability

(2) Personal data that includes your age, date of birth, gender, civil status, height, weight, nationality, religion and permanent address or home of record.

(3) Work experiences that includes the following: Duration, Company/Industry, Location, Department and Job Descriptions.

(4) Education

(5) Skills

(6) Training and Seminars attended

(7) Languages spoken

(8) References

(9) Expected Salary

Simplicity is beauty. Avoid creating a resume with full of colorful graphics. Just write it in a black and white A4 or a Letter-size paper with your own photo attached on it.
