  1. Great ! This kind of things could really help people looking for a job.

  2. Hi,

    Do we need to add technical experties in terms of projects. for example “I have completed a database design for abc project for xyz client in sql server 2008 using log shipping” etc.

  3. Hi Ashok,

    Even this sample resume has used some tables but those were without border. you can use images for certifications but need to ensure, the viewer doesn’t looses focus from your resume.

  4. The Sample SQL DBA Resume is presented well. Thanks for sharing useful stuff.
    Can we able to design a attractive resume with images and tables, using the same concept??

  5. Mayur,
