    Критика резюме и cover letter для США

    Всем привет!

    Где-то здесь на форуме мелькал вопрос про использование сервисов для написания резюме. Я воспользовался одним из них, и был очень доволен самим процессом (много о себе вспомнил, например). Касательно результата:
    Хотелось бы, чтобы знающие учасники форума оценили качество, и может быть что-то подсказали исправить (после выкладывания резюме звонки идут, но многие, как и следовало ожидать, не хотят ждать H1B).

    Заранее спасибо!

    Cover Letter:
    ------------------

    Dear Mr. Blank ,

    I am interested in the blank position with Company Name that I found at Blank .

    As you can see from my resume, I have a strong and diverse background in Software Engineering and Mathematics, which I acquired through working as a Senior Software Engineer at Artsyl Technologies and ABBYY. In addition to work experience, my PhD in Mathematics allowed me to significantly develop practical analysis and computer programming skills.
    I believe that I am an ideal candidate for the blank position with blank . As a Senior Software Engineer at Artsyl Technologies, I designed and oversaw architecture for four major versions of distributed document capture and classification software while managing a team of eight Software Engineers. I created, modified, updated, and supported applications using a variety of languages and tools, while gathering requirements and implementing features for clients. As a Senior Software Engineer at ABBYY, I created and supported two major document and input processing systems for corporate clients, which included implementing custom systems for the National Bank of Ukraine. Through these experiences, I developed a solid foundation of knowledge in the software development lifecycle. My high level of performance in the Mathematics and Computer Algebra classes I have taken demonstrates my thorough understanding of software engineering and mathematical concepts, which I can use to adapt to the responsibilities of this position more effectively. I am confident that my education and work experiences will allow me to quickly and successfully adjust to a fast paced business environment at blank .

    Leadership and teamwork skills are valuable when applied to any task. My experience as a Senior Engineer at Artsyl Technologies has provided me with practical leadership and teamwork skills by serving as the trainer and manager of a eight person team. In this role, I reviewed all assignments and provided constant feedback to Engineers and Junior Developers while creating project documentation and timetables. As a Senior Software Engineer at ABBYY, I developed and delivered software training sessions to client staff. I have continued to develop my leadership skills by creating and licensing my own original software tools, including a backup and synchronization tool and an automated file sharing tool. I believe that these experiences will allow me to effectively interact with clients and coworkers in a corporate setting.

    I look forward to speaking with you regarding the blank position with Blank . Should you have any questions, you may reach me via phone (650)XXX-XXXX or via email (XXX@gmail.com). Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely,

    Re: Критика резюме и cover letter для США

    Это вам в сервисе так написали? Нет, в принципе смотрится нормально. Чисто визуально. Но возникают некоторые вопросы. Понятно, что существуют тысячи абсолютно противоречащих друг другу теорий, как должно выглядеть резюме. Но вот что мне бросилось в глаза:

    * Почему "Doctor of Mathematics", а не PhD in Mathematics?
    * Почему нет Objective? Опять же, есть мнение, что его лучше не писать, авторы даже вроде как логически обосновывают это. Но в целом на резюме тратится секунд десять, и читающий не должен тратить это драгоценное время на то, чтобы догадаться, на какую позицию вы претендуете.
    * Почему сначала стоит "Образование", и только потом опыт. Даже если вы подаете не на техническую позицию, а на научную, то все равно сначала должны идти достижения. Образование на первое место ставят в случае, когда опытом особо похвастаться не получается. Лично у меня, пока я не потратил секунд 20-30, было впечатление, что вы вообще нигде не работали (пока не дошел до раздела "Опыт").
    Чем коварны вежливость и тактичность — хрен поймёшь, что о тебе думают на самом деле.

    Спасибо за комментарий!

    * Почему "Doctor of Mathematics", а не PhD in Mathematics?
    Вопрос... я не спросил, посмотрел что пишут так тоже, только реже... Лучше написать PhD in Mathematics?

    * Почему нет Objective?
    Автор сервиса придерживается мнения, что эту функцию выполняет cover, насколько я понял...

    * Почему сначала стоит "Образование", и только потом опыт.
    Спасибо! Это обязательно поменяю! Как-то не обратил внимание...

    Я считаю, что правильней оставить как есть, PhD - это аббревиатура, Doctor - это полученная степень, что смотритcя профессиональнее решать конечно вам, но стилистически правильнее указать полностью степень, чем сокращение. Единственное, я бы написала Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics, но это не принципиально.
