Ok, now for some real practical advice.

Your English version reads a lot like a Google Translation, so I translated it, and I was spot on, you've used Google to translate then make a few minor modifications.

I was actually thinking of helping you, but it's not going to do you any favours, because if I could figure out that it was translated with Google than any other employer will also know its been translated with Google.

The English version doesn't make a lot of sense and I think that you're better off translating it using your own English language skills, if you don't know the English language well enough then you shouldn't have an English version of your resume.

Consider taking English lessons, you know the basic language you just need help with the finer points of it.

Also, what kind of training do you have?
Do you have any formal qualifications?

If you're looking for an IT job in the USA then you will need a Bachelor of Computer Science Degree to get in the country (for your particular field of work). I learned that the hard way because despite having 8 years of industry experience, real life practical experience and enough web / programming knowledge to score me a job with MS in Redmond. The whole thing became unravelled because I didn't have a piece of paper saying that I have a bachelor degree, I was good enough for the job, just not to get into the country.

So if you're looking for employment outside of Mexico then consider some kind of formal education qualification, as it would be an entry requirement for many countries.

As much as I'd like to help, you're going to have to clarify a little better for me than that. I don't know any Spanish, and the English is just a touch to garbled and vague.

If you were to get some help or assistance in translating it into English, I would be more than happy help you spruce it up into a resume worthy of any position in a myriad of environs!

im looking for a job here in my hometown Tijuana , here in my town theres a lot of assembly industry plants from around the world(you now the story third world country = cheap labor hand) What im looking for is working in the IT area in any of that industrys, i have a degree in Computer Science and i have experience in the IT area for around 5 years. Yes i know my english skills are far from good and i need to go to english class, saddly the private english schools in the city are to low for my standard. Some years ago i was gonna apply in a public nigth school in San Ysidro (USA) ,i have no idea how it really work but i was free english clases for inmigrants (a few friends went to that class) teached by people that really know english (no like the crappy ones in my town) in that time the border line wait time was around 15 minutes , rigth now is about 2 hours so its a nono that option....

im gonna try find a good english school here in my town.....at least it has to be one......

the english skills required for working as a IT vary from 30-100% and i fell that my level about 85% but rigth now the languaje is not a issue for finding a job. In job interviews i havent had any problems when the person of human resources interview me.

what im having a problem is finding the correct technical words for my past activities i post.

Tomorrow im gonna post a second try so it can be easy to you all to help me (feeling crappy rigth now still recovering from food poisoning thanxs to panda express........ if i was a gringo i sue their asses)...
