T. If you want to apply for a job, you should write a resume. Today we have an office manager  as a guest she’ll answer your  question.
P1.The essential elements of work are: salary, being useful to society, experience, travel opportunities, meeting new people, long holidays, flexible working hours, a good atmosphere at work, prospects of quick promotion, job security, friendly boss and colleagues.
Answer my question “What is necessary to get such job? 
P2. We need a good CV to get such job!
P1. As the adage goes, you get only one chance to make a good first impression. If you only have 15 seconds to get a busy recruiter's attention, put your best face, or resume.
What does a good resume include?
I want to present you some resumes. Let’s see them.
Now ask your questions, please. 
P2. What IS a resume anyway?
P1..Remember: a Resume is a self-promotional document that presents you in the best possible light, for the purpose of getting invited to a job interview.
It's not an official personnel document. It's not a job application. It's not a "career obituary"! And it's not a confessional.
P2. What should the resume content be about?
P1. It's not just about past jobs! It's about YOU, and how you performed and what you accomplished in those past jobs--especially those accomplishments that are most relevant to the work you want to do next. A good resume predicts how you might perform in that desired future job. 
P3. What's the fastest way to improve a resume?
P1.Remove everything that starts with "responsibilities included" and replace it with on-the-job accomplishments. (See Tip 11 for one way to write them.) 
P4. What is the most common resume mistake made by job hunters?
P1.Leaving out their Job Objective! If you don't show a sense of direction, employers won't be interested. Having a clearly stated goal doesn't have to confine you if it's stated well.
P5. What's the first step in writing a resume?
P1.Decide on a job target (or "job objective") that can be stated in about 5 or 6 words. Anything beyond that is probably "fluff" and indicates a lack of clarity and direction.
P6. How do you decide whether to use a Chronological resume or a Functional one?
P1.The Chronological format is widely preferred by employers, and works well if you're staying in the same field (especially if you've been upwardly-mobile). Only use a Functional format if you're changing fields, and you're sure a skills-oriented format would show off your transferable skills to better advantage; and be sure to include a clear chronological work history! 
P7. What if you don't have any experience in the kind of work you want to do?
P1Get some! Find a place that will let you do some volunteer work right away. You only need a brief, concentrated period of volunteer training (for example, 1 day a week for a month) to have at least SOME experience to put on your resume. Also, look at some of the volunteer work you've done in the past and see if any of THAT helps document some skills you'll need for your new job. 
P8. What do you do if you have gaps in your work experience?
P1.You could start by looking at it differently.
General Rule: Tell what you WERE doing, as gracefully as possible--rather than leave a gap.
If you were doing anything valuable (even if unpaid) during those so-called "gaps" you could just insert THAT into the work-history section of your resume to fill the hole. Here are some examples:
• 1993-95 Full-time parent -- or
• 1992-94 Maternity leave and family management -- or
• Travel and study -- or Full-time student -- or
• Parenting plus community service
T.Thank you for your questions. Now I’ll give you   resume blank and you must fill it 
T. In conclusion it’s very important to reflect on our work.
I ask you to evaluate ourselves filling in self-evaluation cards.
