Most importantly your resume should highlight your achievements and successes in a clear and concise manner to explain their difference from the masses of other candidates for an open vacancy.

Basic rules

Remember that the resume is not an autobiography, it is not necessary to describe in detail all the years of study, profession and previous positions. Your goal when writing a resume is getting an interview, and therefore to summarize everything: education, certificates, diplomas, achievements and professional experience. If your resume will interest the employer more detail about yourself and your qualities, you can always go with direct conversation. After writing each paragraph summary ask yourself: "what's next? What follows from that?" Each subsequent paragraph should be a logical continuation of the previous one. The final part, especially the last sentence, should be thoroughly planned and to be such that in its reading the employer lost interest to other job seekers and focused only on you.


In most cases, the size or volume of the summary is one page of printed text. More writing is not necessary, except when you have so much experience, honors and achievements, one-page resume simply won't fit.
