Just got back from a dear friend of mine. We had a lovely evening, the children were playing street floorball against the adults (we lost ... old fa..s ), we spent time together with old old friends, talked about everything etc and last but not the least we had a really, really excellent meal (I had seconds for 5 times...).
Things just couldn't be better. Happy May Day to all of you!
Don't get me wrong, I feel your resume is good but I'd like to see some additional things:
- more accurate, when you're seeking for a certain position, try to target them as a company. What you have to offer exactly to them? Get to know the company from their website and try to personalize the resume
- above technology, do you see the bigger picture (and I think you do), try to formalize that
- what really drives you on. Separate from the mass. You're not interested in everything, what gives you the kicks?
- Your values, what do you believe in?
- Your current (and future) status what are you expecting?
As you see most of the things listed are about your future plans. Visualize, where are you after next 10 years and include that in your resume, one way or another. As a personal opinion this would help to make the decision which would be mutually benefial, even if it is negative.
That's a matter of opinion but the first page should make me interested. The additional pages are details
But don't take my advice as the truth. Just modify the ideas appropriate to your cultural expectations. Even though FI is culturally quite close to US we do have differences and different expectations.
As a rule of thumb I'd say that if you can sign the resume and you feel that it describes you as a person, then it's correct
0. replace or drop the objective line. As original as saying I want to be rich, healthy and happy.`
1. Make your skills a section instead of another column. Your resume should still fit on 2 pages. Specify which ones you have real experience with and those you have academic knowledge. As a reviewer I'll scan through everyting verticaly but probably wouldn't even look at the second column if I wasn't interested at that point.
2. Indicate versions for Visual Studio, languages, even Office. A pre-screening could be done by HR with the mandate to keep those who've worked with Office 2007 and up for example.
3. You mention Visual Studio, C#, VB... but no mention of the .Net framework. Pre-screening could be rejecting anyone who has no .Net experience/knowledge. I assume you do, but someone in HR would probably not be able to make the links.
4. Never, never, ever lie on your resume. Ever. But even more in a small market. Having said that, without lying you can choose what you say. For example, at UNC Charlotte, you don't need to say you had only one programing course or that it was mostly general courses at CVCC.
5. Programming certicate: were you registered, or completed it? If complete, make it explicit.
6. Reverse Engineering May 2011 – June 2011: Find another way to phrase that. Sounds like hacking to me. If legit, list it under personnal projects, state your objectives, results and what you've learned.
