    Sick

    I'm 31 freakin years old and maybe written one resume in my life,
    one that, by the way, was never answered

    now I need to write one
    guy I know called and said they have an opening in their IS department,
    and after talking to some people he thought of me
    I'm like, cool, this is the kind of opportunity I was waiting for,
    to get into a networking department

    but I haven't a clue as to what people want to see on resumes
    I'm fucked

    Make up lots of fake qualifications, if possible mention your not American, thats certain to get you the job.

    I think Windows office has a template, keep it short and to the point. Do list your hobbies , interests , position appling for etc . Use spellchecker of cource .


    You don't have to put in your age , sex or any references they'll see them in the interview . Good luck tho its easy ,use the internet to help find work .



    I love this quote : A resume is an advertisement, nothing more, nothing less.

    Your selling yourself in a sense !

    I just finished high school, where we had to make a Senior Portfolio w/ an autobio and resume. It was a graduation requirement, and it had to be perfect, otherwise you can't graduate. I have mine done if you want to see it, so you can see how the layout was supposed to be (at my school anyway).

    you should put stickers on it and sellotape sweets to it, it will look extra nice and they will pick you for sure, they'd be fools not to, do it, do it now

    Stick to the basics.

    D.O.B., Qualifications, experience, references.

    Employers presume you're lying about the rest and don't care about it.


    Yes, RTJ, your teachers lied to you.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    Do you have the name of the person doing the interveiw ? Its impressive if you direct it to him or her . And it looks like you researched the company .


    In the little box marked "SEX " Do not put in not lately, it fails everytime .

    Regrading resumes, I'm presuming your teachers didn't say to merely list your name, age, qualifications, experience and references and not bother spending much time on the rest 'cause employers don't care about that shit.

    I could be wrong

    Eh. Sort of. The resume she made me do has basically all that stuff, and for some reason she had me put down my hobbies also. For the most part your right.
