I was advised by native speakers to compose my resume in the manner in which I avoid the personal pronoun "I":
Since 2003 - Worked with the law firm
1997-1999 - Employed by the bank
Hence my questions:
1) What happens to the form of verbs when I decide to use Present Simple in some items (i.e. should I write my resume in the third person "she"?):
Clerical skills - Has (or have?) a vast knowledge of working with text
2) Please specify the rules for using "with" in:
I would like to pursue a career with your firm
...a position of a librarian with the Metropolitan Library...
Thank you, Ewelina
A typical resume avoids the use of any personal pronouns. It ends up sounding quite terse and abrupt, but that's the style:
