    Seems like a very long resume. You need to make it a bit shorter and try to focus on the most important details. Also, I usually provide phone# of my previous managers on my resume. They love it.
    I go by this-On the top..my name and contact info. Then I star with education.After that I go into my work experience starting with the most recent one. Hope that helped.

    You ask for an honest opinion and I think you need to be aware that at this time, when everybody is finding jobs hard to get, employers tend to try to read between the lines when CVs or resumes are submitted from prospective employees, and when they are probably getting far more people applying for jobs than they have vacancies

    So my impression as somebody who knows absolutely nothing about you is what you write does seem to reveal you are hiding certain things about yourself perhaps unintentionally, and have put in a lot of waffle.

    You do not seem to give any indication that in your previous work experience you have been found reliable and efficient by that employer or otherwise. You do not indicate whether you have been found trustworthy and honest. You do not indicate whether you were considered industrious or lazy by your previous boss in your work performance. You do not indicate whether you have got on OK with your work colleagues and whether you have been a good influence in creating harmony and loyalty or fail to blend into a team by an inappropriate attitude . You do not say if you have had any absenteeism, and whether you have taken a lot of days off for alleged sickness or alternatively never missed a day’s work, you do not say whether you have turned out at all hours and been willing to work whenever required without complaining or whether you have reported for work on time or habitually been late etc. etc.. If you see what I mean..

    Hope this helps and may I wish You the best of luck in getting a job. It is hard for everybody right now.

    I agree with Wamibo. Check out http://www.rileyguide.com for more information on how to write a good resume. Also do you use a cover letter? If so, that is where you want to highlight what Wamibo said about absenteeism, being a team player, etc. Most employers use a scanner programmed to look for “action” words, and if it doesn’t find them, your resume goes into the 86 pile. Riley Guide is very useful and helpful. Good luck and peace.
