First, beware of putting any personal information on line, even in THIS format. This is a train wreck waiting to happen.
Best way to edit something is to put yourself in the role of the employer. What would you, IF you were hiring, consider too much or too little. Next, take a trip to the library or your local unemployment bureau. Lots of free resources on resume writing and interviewing.
One of the best books on overall business tactics is "Smart Moves" By Sussman & Deep. Loads of good stuff. Amazon has it, as well as a bunch of great business books. So does the library.
As one resume workshop leader told us: "The BEST Resume is the one that gets you the job!" Also, keep in mind that we are in a recession sliding into a depression. It is a brief cover letter, a two page resume which can be quickly updated or changed to meet the job that you are applying for, that will get you in the interview door.
One other thing. If you attend church, or a house of worship, check with some members of your congregation. They may be able to help you as well. Prayer and Bible study is also recommended to give you a true perspective as to where the Lord would want you to go. On my new job, I've run into more than a few people who been on 'dry spells' or 'downsized' because of the economy for one or two years. Keep the faith! Some job is better than no job.
