    If there is no "Second problem" then there is no "First problem".

    I think you should be more specific about the kind of research you did. Give more detail similar to what you did in other areas.

    Thank you Ron, I'll try to figure out something for the researching point or maybe just cut it out.

    My first thought: "Researches on customers behalf"? Thats what I basically did.

    For exampel, a customer wanted to patent something, so it was my job to find out what kind of requirements he had to fullfill and what it is going to cost him. Or another exampel, one of our customers wanted to start doing business with another company, so I had to check out in which of there products the other company might be interested.


    Another question, is it ok to end my resume with a point like

    Personal Interests
    -Running marathons
    -Playing soccer

    Thanks again

    It looks good to me. (Resumes are hardly my specialty, but some employers like to see that kind of thing on one.)
