I am having trouble deciding what to and what not to put on my resume.
I have an M. Tech Degree in Biotechnology (completed in 2019) and a Bachelor degree in Pharmacy (completed in 2017). I completed my schooling in 2012 (should I be mentioning my schooling at all, since I have two degrees after?)
I don't possess any job experience yet and have never taken part in an internship.
I was preparing for competitive exams to be able to secure a scholarship to allow myself to pursue a PhD, after completing my degree in 2019, and have hence not sought employment of any form till date. I haven't fared well on that part, the best I've done was 94.5 percentile in an exam, which wasn't nearly enough to get me anywhere at all..
Should I be mentioning any "soft skills"? How long should my resume be? A page? Two? Should I be writing in detail about my projects? Should I be mentioning what my rank was, in an exam for a scholarship that I've already secured and availed? Or just having mentioned that I had secured it will be enough?
Should I be mentioning how much I scored throughout my academics or is just mentioning when I passed them out enough?
Should I mention any references? If so, how? Should I just simply add their emails?
I am attaching the current resume that I've made. It's a little too simple, I believe, but that's why I'm here seeking advice anyway.
Oh and I'll be sending it to someone who holds a good position in a company, and it'd be that person who will be forwarding it to an HR from his own company as well as other companies, so I don't think I have the option to tailor this one in particular to anything specific.
