Can you tell me what you think of my resume?
I posted this just a second ago but I think I put it under the wrong catagory. Anyways Hi there =)! lol I was wondering if I could get some opinions on my resume before I start sending it into employers. Any feedback helps. Thanks!! Oh I had to copy/paste so the formatting is a little off. Personal Statement I am an individual who strives to go above and beyond the goals of my employer, to stand out among the crowd, and I encourage those around me to do the same. I work well in a group setting but I am comfortable working alone. I adapt easily to any situation and learn fast. I am a hard worker because I am a firm believer that a job is a privilege and should be earned on a daily basis. Education/Skills I am currently attending Metropolitan Community College to obtain an Associates in Business Administration degree. I have taken various classes in order to improve my knowledge of Power Point, Excel, and Microsoft word. I have experience using Salesforce as well as SAP. I type 50-60 W.P.M. and my 10-key ranges anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 K.P.H. Work Experience Call Center Representative Mckesson/Convergys - Omaha, Nebraska September 2009 – 03/29/2010 I was in constant contact with Health departments, Providers, Carriers, and Distribution centers across the United States as well as the CDC regarding the H1N1 vaccine. I used company specific programs to look up vaccine orders, replace orders, research various information, and create cases. I was one of the pioneers on this project and helped it grow. It taught me to think outside the box, look for faster solutions, and support my co-workers on a higher level. Manager Taco Del Mar – Omaha, Nebraska August 2007 – April 2009 While I was a manager for this restaurant I handled employee relations, stock, general maintenance, and customer service. After going through intense manager training at their corporate office I learned how to not only perform essential duties expected of a manager, but also how to encourage those around me to be enthusiastic and push themselves harder. Call Center Representative Hyatts Worldwide Reservation Center – Omaha, Nebraska July 2007 – August 2007 I handled calls worldwide from clients who wanted to reserve a room or research a Hyatt Hotel. I used company specific programs to answer all the questions a client asked. Though my employment with Hyatt was short, I still took from it an understanding of customer satisfaction. I also learned that though I was left to work alone, I was still a part of a larger team. References References available on request.

You should make everything in point form instead of whole sentences. A potential employer would have a lot of resumes to go through, so you need to make everything short and to the point. All of your qualifications should be listed together under one heading instead of at the end of each job description... More

Just a side note here..... If you ever post anything on the internet.........you need to replace the names and places with generic names and places....not the real ones.

Every other answer is correct. No sentences & no paragraphs; third person statements only, such as you have for the Hyatt call center. You just bullet your skills there-delete the whole "I also learned that though I was left alone..." and other paragraphs; that is not appropriate for a resume... More
