resume review

Hey! I'm wondering if someone could go over my resume?
I'm about to apply for a job at school through workstudy and
the position doesn't ask much. The thing is that, at the prescreen
the guy asked if I have any experience with Macs. I told him no
but he made out the referral for me anyways. I figure it shouldn't
matter because I have experience using Linux and OSX would have
alot of the same commands, right? I read that OSX is Unix like so
would this mean that I would have to play with FreeBSD to get
somewhat of a feel for it? As for the GUI, I'm sure I would be able
to learn where things are since we have a few Macs at school.

    Put Skills first, then Certifications, followed by Education.

    List relevant technical skills first. "Troubleshoot computers and Windows (XP)" should come ahead of "Load and unload trucks", etc.

    Ohh no the "over the rainbow" isn't on there. I just didn't want to put my
    previous company on there so people don't call there and start asking about me.

    Thanks for the help mikedisd2
    Booya!!

    Just another consideration: If you are going to have an objective, change it to something that will seem beneficial to a potential employee. Currently it is only about your goals. Not sure what really though; I don't have one. Maybe Google it.

    Also list your certs down the page, not across.

    See if you can come up with some more lines for your 2005-06 Internship.

    Be sure to have some professional looking formatting for your CV. Alot of people overlook it thinking that their information will do all the work. Presentation is important, ie, bullet points, intentation, correct font, bold headings, headers/footers, page no., etc.

    Lose the objective or get a better one.

    Take your high school off.

    Talk about your internship more.

    Edit your skills. Take keyboarding off, and talk about something more specific (maybe something you learned through a+ and Net+)

    Talk about your education program more. Maybe what you are talking, some things you are learning that can be applicable.

    I personally don't like point form on the job description, so maybe expand on that.



    Other than that, looks good :P

    Agree with GT-Rob - leave high school off unless you have no college experience.

    Objective is a downer - need to state "Seeking position to augment experience gained in..."

    Importance should dictate the order of your resume sections: Experience/skills, education, certification.

    And reword some of your experience. "Hard drive destruction" may seem that you are perhaps heavy handed and break a lot of things. Try, "Safeguarded corporate data by reformatting recordable media per industry security best practices."
