Dear Aspirant, the resume of a food technologist should reflect many things which would help him to get a desirable job. Let me tell you now one should not prepare a universal resume and forward it to every where to get a job.
You have to make some changes in your resume as per the requirement of the job, for example, if you are applying for a job in university or research institute, then you must highlight the teaching or research experience. If you are applying in a private company or food industry then you should highlight the related training aspects on food sciences or the required items by the industry.
Another thing is that if you are a simple graduate then there is nothing much to write in your resume. Since you have done only teaching courses and some aspects of training program (not research) in your institute or in private company. If you are a post graduate in food technology then there is lot of scope for job. You have studies many courses and also done research for six months. Therefore, you are more technically qualified compared to a simple graduate.
For the position (teaching or research) in any university of research institute, your resume should reflect following things; courses studied, research you have done for thesis, the technology you have learned, hands on training of the instruments, conferences you have attended or participated, training programs attended to improve your technical skills, any publication (research paper, book chapter, review article) will boost your resume. Above all for a university job you will also be needing National Eligibility Certificate (NET) by UGC-CSIR.

For a job in private organization you have to highlight the techniques you have learned, the instruments you can can handle easily, you should mention about the trainings you have undergone. You have to express your desire that you have a passion to join an industry. How you can justify your degree or the trainings you have taken.
Above all your interpersonal skills will make a difference where ever you apply. It is not required to mention in your resume that you are well verse in interpersonal skills, but it should be reflected from your personality at the time of interview.

Good Luck..
