Receptionist Resume Review


Appearance & Classification

  • Use the same font size and style in all your titles, as well as in your sub-headings.
  • For the Computer Skills part, you can as well prepare a table. Which would make it more clear.
  • You should carry the last line on the page 2 to the next page.


  • You should put a part of  “objective” right after your personal information, and mention about your aims and approaches at/for work in two or three sentences in your resume.
  • It could be a better ordering if you put “Language Skills” and  “Computer Skills” parts after one another. To start with “language skills” doesn’t seem appropriate. Even if this is crucial for your profession you had better specify it after the academic qualifications.
  • Whichever title it is always prefer to order the informations starting with the most current one and go down by the date. This is a truth that the employee would be more interested in your university than your primary school.
  • I think you should state the city where you were born instead of the hospital.


There are no grammatical mistakes in your CV.

P.S: If you prepare your CV for a specific workplace and a specific position, then it would be much more effective to deliver it with a cover letter. See example cover letters here: how to write a cover letter

We cannot be sure that we identify all the points that can better your CV, however if you benefit from this free service of ours, please share it with your friends.
