I have read your resume and here are my suggestions:
1. I had to read it twice and still can't figure out what industry or domain you work in. So, that has to be made clear right in the beginning. Perhaps you can insert it with your career objective.
2. Never assume that all recruiters know what the abbreviations in your education table mean. So, while you can leave them there, expand the not-so-readily-known ones (such as BCA).
3. Specify your MBA specialisation.
4. Where you say 'PROJECTS', is that correct, or, is that work you've done? If it is work, then change the title to something like - 'PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE' or 'MY CAREER TO DATE'
5. In the 'Duration' space, also include the start and end time (eg) 4 months (August 1999 - November 1999) etc...
6. Remember to place your most recent work at the top and move to the next one, next one and so on so forth
7. 'Title' is not for you to insert a miniature job description. This is where you write your job title/designation and nothing else.
8. If you want to insert what your role involved, then create another label like 'BRIEF DECSRIPTION' especially for it.
9. In extra curricular activities you write AMFI. What is AMFI? Are most people supposed to know what it means? No! So, write the expanded form. Same for CANDEO
I hope this helps.

I have read your resume and here is my feedback:
1. It is a very well laid out and written resume.
2. Reading it, one gets the feeling that it hasn't been written entirely by one person. What I mean by that is there is a considerable variation in the quality of English language. Especially on page 2 where you talk about your project with Brittania. The quality and construction of that section is markedly different from the remainder.
3. In your 'PROFILE' section (pg 1) you talk about Competencies. Yet, nowhere in the document do you substantiate or even mention those competencies.
4. The items you include under 'Core Competencies' (pg 1) are not core competencies at all. Instead, they are functional areas or work types. Competencies mean Decision Making, Communication, Leadership, Team Building etc...
5. In your 'PROFILE' section (pg 1) you write 'demonstrated professional competencies in managing various HR functions'. I won't repeat what I've already written about competencies in point 4 above. However, by using the word 'managing' you create a false assumption with the reader. You are a Trainee Executive. You are a long way from demonstrating competencies in 'managing' HR functions.
6. So, my suggestion as a remedy to point 5 is to use the phrase 'demonstrated professional knowledge and skills in various HR functions'.
7. Your 'WINTER PROJECT' description is very loose and totally unimpressive. You say "The project presented an overview of the strategies being used by the organisation at a corporate level as well as at business level." Well, you've just described one of the key deliverables of ITC's senior leadership from the Board of Directors right down to their General Managers. Because, that's what they do all day! So, what is the value that your project brought? Or, did you just create a document summarising their strategies at different levels into a single point of reference? If yes, then say so. If no, then go back to your project brief and see what its mission statement or purose statement says in its scope document. That is what you will need to include here.
Other than what I've mentioned above, it looks good.

Thank you for giving excellent feedback to the above two requests. I searched CiteHr for other resumes and found one at https://www.citehr.com/147481-2-year...esumes-hr.html
It would be useful if you could comment on that resume/CV here, as that thread is closed. I found that to be better structured and detailed than these two.
