Would you pretty please help me? Resume included.?
I was laid off in March and since then I have sent out literally hundreds of resumes and completed hundreds of applications yet so far I haven't even had so much as an interview. I'm getting scared as the money is running out and I have no job in sight. Its like I'm being rejected out of hand. I live in a large city (Cincinnati) and I can't understand why I can't find a job in such a big place. Could it be a problem with my resume? Please review and tell me if there's a problem. Objective To work to the height of my potential in order to better serve my employer. By using the skills I have acquired through my college education and past job experience I will be an added asset to my employer. Summary Included in this resume are details about my professional and educational experience. If you require any more information, or have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me at the number listed above. Thank you for your time.
