    One comment: you need to use active voice in description of duties. It should sound as dynamic as possible.

    Re: Would you mind checking part of my resume?

    You're welcome.


    You also might want to include some results. Not just say what your duty was but did it result in anything like sales increase, revenue increase, increased traffic to website, etc. Anything specific that shows that your actions produced quantifiable results. This is especially important for something like marketing.

    For example: "redesigned company website, which resulted in 20% traffic increase"

    Re: Would you mind checking part of my resume?

    Ok!

    But I have a question. If I put exact numbers, should they also be written on the work certificat?

    Because in my case, sometimes nothing is written and sometimes it is only written "considerabely increased turnover and brand awareness" for example. They have never put numbers, for confidentiality reasons I guess.

    Can I even so put numbers if I have them? I mean, wouldn't it seems too "pretentious" as it is not exactly confirmed in my documents? And if I don't put numbers in my resume they might think "what does she mean by considerably?"

    Thanks a lot for your answers
    By the way are they not too many spelling mistakes?

    Only use numbers if you can back them up. If it appears like you're making stuff up, that is very very bad!

    If you have no specific numbers, you can say "which increased turnover and brand awareness" -- it's specific in that the turnover was increased.

    Avoid vague words like "considerably" -- everyone uses them, they're bad.
