When writing a resume set for itself the aim to arouse interest in the man himself, who later will read your resume. And this interest, first of all, should be positive, and, secondly, to draw attention to you, first of all, as a specialist. Note that the first time usually is viewed separately for 1-2 minutes during which it either will be of interest and examine in more detail, or put aside. So try the one hand, the approach to resume writing creatively, and on the other — to fulfill all the formal requirements.
So, the resume should represent you as perhaps not perfect, but certainly a very attractive employee. To do this, it must meet the following requirements:

Second, the resume must wear a possible individual. If you are not exactly decided on the field of activity, for each of the areas make up your resume. Also, before you send the resume to a specific company, try to find and explore information on its operations, corporate policy, understand its principles of operation with the staff and the main requirements for the candidates. Perhaps then you make some changes in your resume or write a new one. Try to convince the employer that you are right for this position, and it is in this company. Do focus on the summary of the specific knowledge and skills that can be useful to work it in this company. You can also create a cover letter and write it, why were you attracted that this company and why you are the ideal candidate. It is also useful to know who is considering a resume in the company and a letter addressed to his name. This approach, first of all, pay attention to your employer for those qualities that are most interesting to him, and, secondly, will you as a person, to the serious problem of finding a suitable job.

But we should also attach and summaries in Russian, because it is possible that it will be read Russian-speaking people, and your task — to create maximum comfort for him learning information.
Fifth, the resume should be concise and readable. Otherwise, it may simply be cast aside without having read. Organize all stated information. Write simple sentences, avoiding long formulations involved and verbal participle phrases. Avoid too many technical terms. The summary should be written in a good literary style and without grammatical errors. Try to avoid negative language, all information must be positive, and a summary of the whole must be brought to the employer as a series of your life achievements.
Sixth, the resume should be well decorated. Try to place all the information on one page. Place information so that the sections are clearly separated from each other, but do not use a tabular form. Use different types and font sizes. Print out resume on good paper and a good printer. If you send a resume by e-mail, it is best not to send it to the application file and insert into the text of the letter.
