Some Key points:
While constructing the resume on thing is most important. Resume must reflect flexibility.
when you are working on your resume keep in mind that this resume is not for all the jobs in your career. Some people make a resume and use photocopy version of resume in all fields, don’t ever do that suppose if there is sale job so you have to construct a separate resume for sale job, and if there is marketing job then construct your resume separate. Supposing if you are looking for a marketing you must highlight my skill in language because if a company is multinational and say it’s a French company and I know the French language and if I highlight that I can even market a product using my French skills, you have plus point then your competitors. If you are applying sales job and you know you have got a past experience of putting up good sale target that is an edge over it.
