Firstly it must be mentioned that when preparing your resume, remember that the goal of the resume is to interest a hiring manager enough to invite you for an interview. It is only the first step of the interview process, and an important one.
There are different ways to prepare a resume in English for 外資系. Most commonly used for experienced candidates is a chronological, which means it shows your job history over time. Usually the latest information is at the top of the resume, continuing back through time, ending with your first job. Educational background can follow afterward. For candidates who may have worked at only one company in their career, the same pattern can apply, except that instead of listing experience employer-by-employer, you may list your experience in terms of position or title.
People with limited experience--such as fairly recent graduates--may be better served by creating a functional resume. In this resume format, functional skills would be listed that to highlight your ability to perform the job being applied for. If you are applying for an accounting position, for example, you would list your familiarity with certain spreadsheet applications and formats, the number of hours completed in an accounting course or in voluntary/intern usage, and so on.
Unlike on the Japanese version, a recent photograph of yourself is typically not necessary on resumes written in English, and personal information such as hobbies or other interests—not being directly applicable to the position—are not necessary. However, such information is very valuable to Kumo's recruiting consultants, because it gives a much deeper understanding of a candidate's true interests and abilities and has proved helpful in many cases to find good career matches.
Bear in mind that your resume may contain your goals and personal interests, but must contain the facts of your professional background. Also, rather than using a standardized format, you may want to tailor the resume depending upon the type of job you apply to. For example, one job may require strong Excel skills and you may therefore want to highlight that skill more prominently, whereas for another job you may want to highlight telephone sales skills. One generic resume for all jobs applied to may not result in as many interviews, so consider this.
So, to recap: while the goal of the interview is to entice a job offer, the purpose of the resume is to obtain the initial interview. Best of luck!
