    Can you please have a look at my resume?

    Dear all,

    I have been rewriting my résumé in English and I'd really like to get it corrected by a native speaker. Could you please help me?

    I did not know how to translate my function name for my first and third experience. The exact translation is "management controller" but I feel like this is not really used, so I chose "Financial controller" (or "financial analyst ?).

    Anyway, feel free to make any comment, even "professional" comments.

    Thank you!

    Re: Can you please have a look at my resume?

    Hi,

    I know it is a very long post so do not worry, I'll corect it another way.

    Can you just tell me if my personal information part is fine? I actually do not like to put my exact home address but I need recruiters to know I am in my home country, so I was thinking about this:

    Name
    e-mail address
    Phone number
    Driver's license
    French (currently living in France)

    Is this an acceptable and correct to way to say I am l living abroad?

    Thank you and have a good day

    I could not understand the text highlighted in red.
    I also think you should mention the dates and names of the places you worked in.

    Thank you so much Teechar, that really helps me a lot.

    Ok, I will try to explain better. Other sentences I wrote were confusing too so I will explain too:

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    I was not working in the IT and Back-Office departments but I was in charge of controlling their expenditures, by working within the Finance department. I just want to make sure this is what you understood since what I wrote in the first place was actually confusing.

    By the way, I found "management accountant" on the internet; based on my jobs descriptions, is it better than "financial analyst"?

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    Maybe "department" is a better word?

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    I actually removed "Watches and Jewelry department" in my job title, which made it confusing.

    - New semester: The company was changing its offer for the upcoming semester so I was in charge of preparing this new offer.
    - Models choice: I chose what models (i.e watches, rings, ...etc) each store clusters was going to offer.
    - Madegave presentations: I actually only made powerpoint presentation I sent to people; should I keep "made"?

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    I was in charge of choosing which "commercial area" in the world (maybe "sales area" is better?) was going to receive models (i.e watches for instance; maybe "pieces" is a better wod in that case). For instance, I had a stock of 10 wtaches and I supposed to "divide" them between those commercial areas.

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    Should I use "pieces"?

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    I actually meant I was selling to those customers by talking to them in English or in Spanish (they were not specifically Spanish or English).

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    I think my sentence was confusing. I did not deal with those orders in a physical way, but I just entered them in SAP software. Should I use "enter"?

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    The store was actually selling scholar books (because it was in a business school) but it was also selling items like t-shirts, glasses, ... with the Business School's logo, which I tought were called 'tie-in products".

    Thank you, I actually removed those details when I pasted the text from my résumé.

    Quote Originally Posted by teechar View Post

    My bad, that was really confusing. I meant "I am living in my home country", wich means "I am living abroad from the recruiter's point of view".

    Anyway, thank you again for your correction.

    Re: Can you please have a look at my resume?

    "IT and Back-Office Analyst & Controller" is OK as a title for that job.

    "Analyzed and calculated monthly variations for IT department accruals."

    "Prepared new season offers and selected appropriate product models for store branches, as well as made product promotion presentations."

    "Allocated product models to commercial areas (Europe, Asia, US, ….) on a weekly basis."

    "Supported sales team: sent and received product models, and conducted some research. " performed occasional studies.

    "Sold shoes to locals and to foreign customers with whom I communicated mainly in English and Spanish."

    "Entered customer order details into our SAP software, and resolved order-related problems."

    "The XXX Business School bookstore which also sold souvenirs and other school paraphernalia."

    Finally, if you don't wish to include your full home address in your résumé, you can use a postal address if you have one, or you can just put the name of the city and country.

    We do call those things you mentioned "tie-ins". Also, you would give, present, or deliver a power point presentation. (You're probably supposed to capitalize "Power Point".)
