Most word processing programs have a 'template' that allows you to fill in your information and print out a basic resume. Word, Open Office and Microsoft Works all have these templates.

A resume is a kind of autobiography but it has more to do with your work history, your education and your interests or hobbies as well as your skills. 

Start with your education, list the major schools you attended, any awards that you may have won as well as the degrees or certificates you have obtained.

Next is your work history. The year, the city, the company and a short description of your duties as well as your achievements.

Then a little bit about you. Your hobbies, your interests.

Above all : KEEP IT TO ONE PAGE

In the US and Canada, resumes that are more than one page are ignored. We don't put pictures on the resume and we don't put birth dates or  sex or race/religion on the resume. In Canada, no one is allowed to ask you your age until after you are hired and your religion or race never comes into the discussion. Your own country may have different regulations. 

Do a search for sample resumes on Google. And good luck!!

Try out monster.ca. There is a resume builder, if you follow the guide line, u should have no problem.

For many employees and employers, they don't have much ideas about writing a professional resume. For a pro. resume, one page is perfect. U may also add a last sentence "References Available Upon Request", and put 2-3 references on a new document. It's just in case employers asking for it. My professor prefer to have "References Available Upon Request"; however, i rarely use it.

resume should be an abstract of one's educational feild ( it depends on feild u r applying for)

this is for educational side

just mention your name,contact adress including your email id

that is your school name,place,and your aggregate(your percentage)

then followed by your external intrests and hobbies that are fetching to them
