    I develop resumes and cover letters for individuals on a weekly basis, this is one of the many services I offer.

    One of the details I noticed when reviewing your resume is that you did not hold your positions for a long period of time and there are gaps in your employment. You do not list what employer you worked for during the periods of time that you listed your job duties and/or experience. Were all of the positions held with the same employer? Also, it is hard to determine what type of formating you are using to construct the resume. The format above is not in a resume format, this may be due to the limited formating that can be used in yahoo answers. In addition, you need to strengthen your job duties by using key words that indicate that you had more extensive job duties than listed in your resume.

    Please do not take my answer to heart, I am just giving you my honest professional expertise in the area. If you have access to microsoft word or can accept attachments in PDF format, I would be more than happy to email you some templates you can use to create your resume. In addition, I can provide you with some key words that you can institute in place of other words that you have used. The key words are what catch a prospective employers eye when reviewing resumes.

    If you wish you can add additional details to your question or if you prefer you can email me and I can send you attachments of sample resume and templates that will ensure that you sell your experience, skills and education.

    Best wishes.

    Your gaps in employment and very short work durations stand out. Otherwise I think it's good.
