Need Help Checking English to German Translation for CV/Resume

Hi everyone,

I'm applying for a change of canton to Zurich and the authorities there need a copy of my CV/Resume in German. I tried doing this myself using Google Translate and was hoping a German speaker here could help read my translation and see if it all makes sense.

Here is my attempt at a German translation:

Here is the original English text:
[removed for privacy reasons]

I tried to simplify and shorten sentences so it passes through the translator better. There are also some terms which I couldn't find how to say in German, so I left those in English.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

If it's just for moving from one Gemeinde to another, it seems plenty good enough for that. If you needed a German version in order to apply for a job then it might be a different matter. In that case, I think you'd need a translator with technical understanding of your particular skills.
