    Well-written resume! There are a few spelling/grammar errors which I have highlighted. Resumes should be corrected several times, preferably by more than one person, to assure high quality!

    Honest, aspiring and hardworking person with analytical thinking. Thorough, persistent and creative for reaching goals and finding solutions. Having (This word should be omitted - it is grammatically incorrect and disrupts the flow of the other sentences) Extensive and deep knowledge in mathematics combined with practical experience in economical and financial analysis. Initiative and broad-minded individual, (can omit this comma) who is passionate for math (I would suggest using the word math OR mathematics throughout your resume, not switching back and forth, to keep it consistent) and economics and don’t (incorrect grammar, "is not" is correct. If you sound out "do not afraid of..." it should sound incorrect.) afraid of challenging assignments. Willing to strengthen econometric and English knowledge in order to succeed in further career growth.

    (The preposition "in" would sound natural here)

    (A couple of problems here. Remember to be consistent! If you choose to not use a comma ' when listing words in some sentences then do not use it for any other sentences. Omit "and" and list financial data as the fourth term. In addition, watch your tenses to make sure they are consistent. Do not switch between simple present and continuous when describing the same present job. Simple present is fine).
    • Assist in annual budgeting of revenues and expenses for group of agricultural enterprises, and making farther (spelling error?) analysis of actual implementation of the budget (Since this is a long sentence with two different duties, I would suggest making it two separate bullet points.)

    Extensive travelling (traveling) throughout the USA (Avoid abbreviations, the United States of America) Computer jargon/abbreviations that are known to the potential employer are an exception.
    This was a quick overview on my part, I would love to hear other opinions

    I would write:

    ...asymptotic integration of higher order Emden-Fowler type differential equations with regularly varying nonlinearities.

    Thank you very much!! Thanks to both of you!!!! Your corrections were very helpful for me!!!
    There is only one thing that I'm not sure I do understand correct. In this sentence "Having (This word should be omitted - it is grammatically incorrect and disrupts the flow of the other sentences) Extensive and deep knowledge in mathematics combined with practical experience in economical and financial analysis. " did you mean that I need just to delete (remove) "Having" or should I rephrase the whole sentence?

    Note that we're not dealing with sentences here. There are no finite verbs!

    I don't see why this word should be incorrect, but you can remove it without rephrasing the rest. Petit_minou will hopefully give her opinion.

    Here no one writes "honest" on a CV, as it is either redundant or incorrect, with no way of telling.
