Antzoul,

Your general format is very good. Your quickly highlighting your brief history with your accomplished skills. Very good.

If you can, emphasize your skills and accomplishments more. If I am looking at your resume, how do I quickly separate you from the pack? What skills and experiences do you bring to the table? Are you an analytical or touchy-feely type? Are you hard driven results orientated, or are you process driven?

<>

Was it successful? Did it make any money? Did you win recognition within the firm?

<>

"carried out" is not a strong term to use....

Championed
Launched (though you use that later)

If you want, you can send me your CV and I can have a closer look at it. mountainhiker @ 138mail.com (spaces are too fool the spam bots)

If you are applying to American firms, you can either include or exclude the hobbies. I tend to exlcude them, because no one cares. Can you do the job and will you fit in. If you have a really unique hobby--then I might include it.

Hope that helps.

You have to include hobby if it may help you in work.

Uh, no. In fact, many people deliberately keep their private lives private.

There's an addage when writing resumes, write just enough to tantalize the interviewer into wanting to meet you and nothing more--don't provide an excuse for the interviewer to reject your application.

If your "hobblies" DO relate to your jobs...(you like photography and you want to work as a photographer), then you can easily incorporate your personal accomplishments into a "skills and accomplishments" section.

The other person's resume is very business orientated. Karate and guitar playing merely indicate that he has other passions in life. Maybe the person reading his application hates all forms of violence and rightly or wrongly groups karate in that same "bucket". I'd leave it off the resume.

If I were asked during the interview what I like to do in my spare time, I'd reply I enjoy sports and physical fitness as well as playing the guitar.

In North America, personal data is almost always excluded from the resume.

Dear MountainHiker!

In the present version of my CV I have mentioned my hobbies and interests as follows:

Hobbies:
Telemark; playing the guitar;

Interests:
Indoor skiing technologies, psychology, rehabilitation technologies for the people with spinal cord injury.

It seems like I have weird "Interests", which might frighten the potential employer. I am applying for an engineer position in the Netherlands. I do not exactly understand, what is going on in brains of western-culture-people, and what they think reading such a list. In former USSR countries I would definitely avoid mentioning "spinal cord injury" in the CV.

May I also send you my CV via e-mail, or it is better to modify it and put here, like other people did?
