    Sorry that its a link, rather than an attachment, for some reason it wouldn't let me upload the pdf or word document

    Some of the bulletpoints are lengthy. Aim for 1 line for each.

    In the last section have 'Intermediate Chinese' instead of Chinese (intermediate) and stuff. And same goes for interests, write sth like 'managed personal portfolio of fiat and cryptocurrencies' and 'football - coached for AC Milan Academy Singapore U18'.

    Other than that it's good.

    Thank you for the feedback! I have made each bullet point 1 line long, and have slightly changed the layout to fill the whole page, do you think it is now good to go?

    Now they are too short/and low-quality. Incorporate numbers where you can and focus on what exactly you have achieved/learned from your experiences.

    Remove the Skills section atogether. You don't need to say 'beginner' or 'undergoing X course'. And have all your interests just on one line, separated by commas.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

    I have gone back to having some bullet point being 2 lines, and have tried to incorporate more numbers. I have also cut out all the additional information in the skills section (bar Chinese, as I feel as if it should be made clear that I am not fluent).

    I also decided to replace my address with my LinkedIn link.

    Any more final feedback would be much appreciated!

    Put down your real address, not LinkedIn.
