Resume

Having completed your CV you can now further your preparatory work concerning your application for a job by writing your résumé. This document contains a brief summary of your education and professional experience.

 

It is more concise than the CV and it is aimed at “selling yourself”  as the right person for the job you wish to apply for.   The “self” marketing tone of the résumé is acquired by using the first person in a relaxed style.  You could e.g. use adjectives that you would not use in the CV.   References could be made to a “a rewarding experience”,  a difficult period”, a “happy marriage”,  a “highly successful project ” and so forth.  The point is that you can here brand yourself as the person well equipped to fill the position.

 

In the limited space of a page or two you should be able to cover your strengths with specific reference to personal information, your present position and its associated responsibilities and functions, your qualifications and previous experience, your core competence and career vision. In summary you could state what value you shall add to your prospective employer.
