Just redid my resume, what do you all think?

So, I just redid my resume after a long period of it being dull. What do you all think about it?

Yea I know I put down Windows 7, but I know SOMETHING about it so that's why it's there.

If you have any time as an intern, add it. If not, find a company that will let you intern for some experience.

Try to make it one page and insure it can be read with OCR software. Some employers run all resumes through an OCR app and look for key words.

Can't really get it all on one page without cluttering it up to much. Let me see what else I can try.

And no, that's my only work history I've had =/.

It looks good, but as SqdnGuns said you need to fit it on one page.

Here's a shorter version, but still it's more than one page.

Still no good. You have to reduce the titles and text size to fit on one page.
The content is OK though.

TBH, you're wasting a lot of White Space at the top and with those very large boldfaced section headings. One way would be to move your name and such off to the margin, allowing everything to move up....

Take a look at some of the Word templates available online for Resumes- that will get you going.

Also, 1 page is not a *must* - generally, hiring companies want 1-2 pages max.

I agree John. It would look so much neater without the wasted space.

Got it a little smaller. Anyone think the header would look better with it all on one line or two lines? It should be all on one page if the header is on one line instead of two I think.

It looks better, but it would be neater on one page.
There is a lot of spare space on the right.

It would be easier for you do download a template from Microsoft word as John said.
