RESUME #7: A US Citizen with Foreign Sounding Name Who Was Born in The USA and Speaks English as His Native Language


(Native Born US Citizen)

(Speak English as Native Language.)

[This approach prevents people from making unwarranted assumptions based on your last name. Some jobs do require US Citizenship or permanent residency. All jobs in US do require excellent English, so let people know right up front. If you are a Permanent Resident say so. If you speak excellent English at 9.5 on a scale of ten, say so. Whatever is positive, say it here to prevent incorrect assumptions.]
