Tips on writing Resumes

What I really hope to do here is to give you, who for some reason, like me, did not attend a course on Professional Communication or have never written a resume before, some ideas how and where to begin. I hope these sample resumes taken from my collection amassed over 7 months and the comments I’ve included on them would in some way help you. If it does, I have fulfilled my objective.

This is the first step most people have to take to obtain their jobs. If you managed to master the art of resume writing, it will take you a long way. For it’s also about your language ability (can you write concisely and to the point?), your ability to know what people want and provide it and how well can you present your life achievements and accomplishments in such one or two pages. It is surely an art. 🙂
