Highlight the areas where you are strong and your specialization. This should speak more so spent more lines (should start after objective and can go upto the end of first page.

Next is the work summary which list the companies hired you earlier. Put latest company first. Make the company name as a Title text. Work place, your designation and period of work in next lines (separate lines).

Your educational qualifications should come next mention the degrees in reverse order (highest qualification comes first).

Put any certifications in separate topic if you have any. Put your achievements and awards received in a separate topic. Just mention the title of the award/certification and the period on which you are awarded. Do not brief them in lines.

Next you can put your work/project details. If you are in a manufacturing and other industries, put the departments you have worked. Put your responsibilities, team size, and your contributions. Contributions are more important because all the employers will spend more time here.
