The Perfect Resume

The American Resume has different standards  than the French resume.
Here are a few rules to observe:
- Personal details: limit them to your full name, address, email address and phone number are required. Avoid irrelevant data such as: date of birth/place of birth/ age/ marital status
- Do not include your photograph
- Place your  title and/or your career objective at the top of your resume, but below your personal details. (i.e.,"Project Manager looking for a new challenge in technical support" or "Web page developer"
- Resume should  be no longer than one page, two pages max.
- Get straight to the point: if it does not support your job objective or internship cut it out
- Be precise and clear.(i.e., avoid terms like "various responsibilities"
- Highlight accomplishments and results
- Use action verbs
- Write short phrases
- Be precise in your starting and ending job dates and graduation dates as well
- Be honest about your foreignlanguage capability and mention any relevant certifications,testsor officila qualifications (i.e., TOEFL, DALF/DELF, CEFR...) 
- Mention your community involvement and volunteer activities
