That's very interesting, when at Secondary College and TAFE, they've all suggested an Interests/Hobbies Section. For the past few weeks, and for the next few months, I go to Employment Futures for Training and Employment Assistance, where Jennifer Neaves has really emphasised for me to have a Recreational Section.beno said:Jonathan:
A couple of suggestions about your resume (these suggestions are also dependent upon what type of job/position you are intending to apply for):
1. Put your education in chronological order starting with the most recent educational institution/program that you are currently working in/on. GO backwards from there.
2. I'm not sure possible employers are interested in your recreational activities. They might be, but I highly doubt it (again, based onmy disclaimer above). I'd get rid of it.
3. The educational stuff you have--if they are incomplete, suggest a tentative date of completion for those programs.
4. Get rid of the 'regards' stuff at the bottom.
5. Since your work experience is limited, I would expand the educational section with some details of coursework, specific professors you worked with, or explanation of degree of difficulty of the program of study--remember--you are trying to build credibility and ethos with your resume--succinctly and discretely.
6. Not sure you want to be posting all of your rather personal information on MUD I mean, I assume we all think that everyone is on the up and up here, but really, you never know.
Good luck and best regards.
ps: Would I hire you? Naaaah...
I highly doubt I'd get a Desk Job, unless I went back to TAFE to complete the Advanced Diploma in Computer Systems Engineering. - Which is also unlikely.OZCAL said:I agree about not listing favorite websites. Even though everybody surfs the web at work on the boss' dime, you don't want to put the image of it in his head.
Nothing, I've wanted to do short Courses at TAFE(Introduction to Java Server Pages, and Certificate II in Australian Land Conservation and Restoration), but they don't get enough enrollments for the Course to go ahead.denis said:also, you resume is supposed to look attractive, you've got to catch the attention, and interest of whoever is reviewing them. then elaborate on whatever experience or education is relevant to the position you're applying for. what have you been doing since 2003 ?
