Hi Ukasha,

My general/quick (not full review) thoughts are as follows:

Consulting-Specific

  • Yes, your resume has enough consulting-focused verbiage here

Template

  • You need a new template - there is a LOT of work to be done to make this professional...a few examples:
    • Education should not be 1 line...each educational experience should look like your work experience
    • Should put company, then role below
    • Should put date then country below
    • Dates should include months
    • etc.

Content

  • Not enough skills. Either add more or cut
  • Any extracirriculars?
  • Try not to use the same verbs frequently next to each other (Led, Devleoped)
  • Need to improve bullet points to be more precise, concise, and value/action-drive

Hi Ukasha,

My comments based on a quick review:

Education

  • Use consistent nomenclature: either CGPA or GPA

Experience

  • Very wordy & long given you have been in the roles about 2yrs or under
  • Keep 3 or 4 per entry in this section for consistency and ease of reading
  • Focus on the most impactful statements- what was the impact of your work? Quantify this

Leadership

  • Use consistent bullet style and not -

Skills & Programs

  • Just say IT/Technology skills
  • Enter space between this and Leadership section above

Hello!

To add on top of what has been commented before, with your "short" work experience it´s umbalance to have that much space dedicated to work and so little to education

Cheers,

Clara
