5 симпатий

Первое, что бросается в глаза - уберите русский язык. Вообще. Даже не думайте вставлять.
Второе… В резюме никогда не пишется “я”, “меня”, “мне”. Всегда пишется в третьем лице, как бы “взгляд со стороны”.
Потом… Не надо так гордиться тем, что вы закончили курсы английского языка. Знание языка подразумевается (хотя-бы на командном уровне). Тем более, что общаться будут не с дипломами, а с вами.
И еще… Я, конечно, не уверен, но возможно у “выпускника школы КГБ” будут проблемы с трудоустройством.

Как раз наоборот, примут с распростёртыми руками. Куда надо. Дадут хорошие бабки, лишь бы только все КГБешные шифры выложил.

Ага… А потом старый друг напоит кофе с плутонием…

Буду благодарна за любые комментарии.
Также интересует, насколько необходимо корректировать данное резюме, если речь идет не о поиске работы в фарм индустрии, а о поиске PhD.

Здравствуйте, уважаемые форумчане.

Супруг хочет начать поиск работы с оформлением H1B визы. Создано резюме, перед его размещением на поисковых сайтах а также перед отсылкой потенциальным работодателям, хотелось уточнить вот какой вопрос. Уместна ли или необходима фраза типа “H1B visa sponsorship required” и в какой части резюме ее следует размещать?

Если найдётся кто-то, кто готов оценить-покритиковать само резюме, я его с удовольствием размещу.

Заранее спасибо за отклик.

Вот ссылка на резюме

Заранее спасибо за помощь :flo:

Можно писать, можно не писать. Зависит от того, хочется ли поговорить с людьми, которые вообще-то не собираются спонсировать визу, и попытаться убедить их в обратном. Если писать, то где-нибудь в начале, рядом с контактной информацией.

Мы написали в Objective

а я бы написал в конце и маленькими буквами - пусть сначала резюме прочитают…


так наше пятилетнее образование к чему приравнивается, никак не пойму? Bachelor или Master?

Если вы по поводу резюме, то супруг 6 лет учился, диплом у него магистерский

Обычно Master. На самом деле там граница проходит по какому-то количеству академических часов. За 5 лет, по 6 дней в неделю, их набирается достаточно и даже с запасом.

XYZ, Inc., Moscow, Russia
Software engineer in R&D Department, 2009 - Present
Responsible for software architecture and design, implementation, debugging, hardware testing, troubleshooting, redesign recommendations, and maintenance.
• Designed and developed MCU firmware for Hand-Held Units (HHU) that controls a car alarm. The HHU is based on PIC24 MCU and has OLED display, flash memory, touch screen or 5 buttons (depending on the model), beeper, vibrator, ASK radio transmitter and receiver, rechargeable li-ion battery and charge management controller. The firmware, including drivers for all of these hardware components, was written entirely by me from scratch. The HHU allows users to control the car alarm through over 40 graphic menus and to receive alerts and notifications by displaying animations, static pictures, and icons. The software supports multitasking for real-time tasks such as displaying animations with constant frame rate, receiving or transmitting radio signal, playing melodies, and handling user input by using ADC for touch panel and GPIO for buttons. The HHU and alarm’s main unit communicates with each other by a proprietary radio protocol, which uses Manchester code. Messages sent through the radio interface are encrypted; 64-bit individual keys are used for encryption. The firmware is optimized for very low power consumption, so the HHU can work on 560 mAh battery without recharging for several months. The software was written in C, no third-party RTOS was used.
• Designed and implemented software (for 3 of total 4 MCUs and PC) and designed part of schematics for a universal automatic test jig for car alarms. The test jig consists of 3 modules which can be used in different configurations. UART interface is used for communication between the modules, and USB interface - for communication between the main board and PC. The HID class is used for USB interface, therefore no driver installation is required for supported Windows OS’s (2000, XP, Vista, and 7). The PC software works in one of three modes: manual mode, automatic mode, and learn mode, it can also measure intervals between any signals from alarm’s main unit and HHU with 4 ms accuracy. Automatic mode can test a car alarm without human attendance, it uses predefined, manually written or created by “learn mode” testing algorithms. These algorithms are custom language scripts. Support for new car alarms can be added by creating new scripts, no modification of software or hardware is required. Software for PIC18 was written in C, for PIC16 - in Assembly, and in C++ using .NET Framework - for PC.
• Designed and developed software (for MCU and PC) for CAN bootloader. The bootloader is used for firmware updates on STM32F1 based devices connected to a CAN-bus. The software includes Windows application (written in C++ with .NET Framework) and STM32F1 MCU’s software (written in C). A USB-CAN bridge is used to connect PC to a CAN-bus. The bootloader can program any individual device (if the bootloader software is included in its firmware) connected to a CAN-bus. A specific device for reprogramming can be selected in the PC application from the list of devices found on a CAN-bus or specified manually. The software automatically performs verification of written firmware.
• Wrote software for a Hand-Held Unit (HHU) that controls the car alarm. The HHU is based on PIC12 MCU and has ASK radio transmitter and buttons. The software was written in Assembly.
• Designed and implemented PC software and MCU firmware for downloading pictures to OLED HHU’s flash memory. The program transfers pictures to HHU through a serial interface and creates a header file that is required for HHU’s projects to use the pictures. The software was written in C#.
• Developed MCU software for a test jig for OLED HHU. The test jig is used during HHUs production to check if all hardware components are working properly. The test jig is based on PIC18, the software was written in C, OSA RTOS was used.
• Maintained, enhanced, and added support for new car alarm models to PC applications for configuring and identifying alarms. Programs were written in C#.
• Developed two applications for Android smartphones and one - for phones with J2ME support. These three programs were written in Java and are used to control GSM/GPS modules. Commands are sent to the modules by SMS. Applications for Android analyze incoming SMS from the module and can perform action depending on the SMS content (for example, display map using Google Maps API with coordinates from SMS).
• Wrote PC software for testing interface between car alarms and modules connected to car’s CAN-bus. The software was written in C#.
• Developed MCU/PC software for determining battery capacity, including capacity vs. voltage characteristic. The MCU software was written in C and PC – in C++ using .NET Framework. USB interface (HID class) is used for the PC – MCU interface.

Привет, коллега! :meeting:
Резюме выглядит очень даже достойно, будь я потенциальным работодателем - я бы заинтересовался :slight_smile:

2 симпатии

Я бы ещё посоветовал получить хотя бы небольшой опыт с FPGA, DSP, embedded linux, чтобы их можно было тоже добавить в резюме. Эти вещи сейчас очень востребованны. В идеале иметь в резюме какой-нибудь мультимедийный девайс с мощным процом, большим TFT и android/linux на борту. Вы занимаетесь только ПО? Как насчёт железа - схемотехника, трассировка, владение САПРами? Есть небольшие компании, основанные иммигрантами из стран СНГ. Туда легче пробиться и получить H1B, по крайней мере уровень англйиского не так важен. Но, т.к. компании маленькие, ценятся специалисты универсалы, которые и схему и плату и прошивку могут сделать, заказать компоненты да ещё и сами спаять всё это :slight_smile:
