Any other certification if you did, any internship or seminar if you attend, mention all these in this section.

Write your resume using a simple and basic font and use appropriate font size. Never use fancy fonts. Keep it clean and clear.

A resume with spelling and grammar mistakes is a total disaster. So always check the spelling and grammar mistakes before printing. Use proper tools to check and check it twice for sure.

9. Extra-curricular activities:
If you were part of any extra-curricular activities then mention these also in resume.

10. Photo on resume:
there is no hard and fast rule to add or not to add photo on resume. If you want then you can add your photo also. But it should be passport size.

11. Other details:
Add a section for other details like languages known, hobbies, interests and other positive points in brief.

12. Read it double before print:
Read the resume double for assurance before print. Verify if all required information is there and no irrelevant information added.
