Hi Guys,
I want you to tell me what do you think about my resume because I'm not an expert at this :lol:
This resume is made fully by me so it may have rookie mistakes.
Please read the resume from this link: http://thelightbulbgames.weebly.com/resume.html

Thanks in advance! :D

Construct 2 - Expert - 3
Adobe Illustrator - Advanced - 3

You mean "I know what buttons on the interface do" or "I can code complicated games/Make anything you want and ready to publish drawings" ?

In construct 2, I'm a fast learner, I got the skills on this. But on graphic design maybe you are right, it need to be fixed. Thank you!

You need to edit this down to 1 page, there is a lot of information not suited for a resume here, for example you mention java at least 5 times throughout! Remember that an employer would decide if you have any potential in just a few seconds.

Qualifications should really mean degrees you have earned, not skills as the next section is skills again which duplicates the qualifications section

The thank you note at the end doesn't seem like a good idea at all for this type of document?

As previously stated, your ambition and drive for your age is very admirable, it's for this reason that I'm going to be straight.

The CV has a lot of problems, it would take a while to list them all, but the first one that jumps right out at you is:

"Be a productive member in society and produce high quality products and gain experience as a programmer and a developer."

Followed by:

"Creative Writing Expert"

By and large, I'd never consider calling myself an expert in anything without a qualification - for subjects like writing this is even more important, the field is thousands of years old, there are entire degrees dedicated to the minutiae of it. If the skill your claiming is in any way academic, it's good to back it up with an academic qualification.

On the topic of the use of the word expert, it's commonly accepted that you have applied 10,000 hours (commonly seen as 10 years) of deliberate, focused learning into any field to become an expert. There are exceptions to this, with fields that are inherently young like SEO, but the real experts in these fields often have over a decade of experience in a precursor field.

There's some great advice in the previous thread you posted about your CV.

I don't know why I added thank you note, I heard it is a good thing

Thank you for the help. Well What should I write instead of expert? I meant by expert that I have good skills at C2 and I can make mostly any game.
While for writing I have been writing for over 7 years and I'm still writing till now as I'm writing game reviews.
How it should be then?
The old topic was a very old cv. I deleted it. Now I want a good cv. :)
