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.
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.
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.

I see a few areas. First, fix your grammar. Under education you do not have a BS in 2010, you are currently a college student. Your career objective is not clear. What is the position you are seeking? You need to tie your accomplishments to your career objective. My guess, you also need a detailed cover letter. If you post back on here what you want to do - i'll try and help you so more. It is 9:30 now, I can only give another hour or so.
my remarks contain multiple spelling errors - i'm typing on my laptop while sitting in my chair. Plus you need to run all of your stuff through spell and grammar check
Objective. I'm an aggessive young man seeking an entry level management position within the customer service divison of your company.
Forget your summary, it belongs in the cover letter. A good cover letter and a reasonable resume is what would get you an interview with me.
Lets look at your most recent job. Dates you worked there and your job title. Red flags to hr managers are when you give years only and not specific dates. It would mean to me you had several , unaccounted for months in your life. I do care that you were not working, I want to know why - you can tell them in the interview.
Produced daily, weekly, monthly operational reports. Inventory managment report, cash reconcillation report.
Suppervised staff of 8 fellow team members.
Handled any customer complaint related issues.
List any other important things you did here.
You have had quite the number of hodge pod jobs - thats ok - tie them together when you get an interview. McDonnalds taught you some great customer service skills - hospitality skills ets. You just need to dress this up.
Your profficient at MS Word (are you), Excell and PPT - don't lie, but saying you used it -
Brief words, profit improved by x%, customer complaints went down by x%, Tie things to what employers care about - customer service - retention, profiitablity, team player, etc

First, get rid of your objective & summary. They are too wordy. By the time the employer reads those, they won't want to read much further. You do not have to mention the Eagle Scouts or Thespian either. What kind of job do you want? Your resume doesn't say how qualified you are in the job you are applying for. I have learned that you need to "write" your resume for the kind of job you are looking for. Does the job need an Eagle Scout? Probably not. What kind of job do you want? Do you want retail? Your resume should speak to the potential employer to fit their needs.Source(s): Personal Experience

Google "cover letter templates" You will be able to find samples of cover letters that you can go off of. This just basically gives a formal letter about you and your skills that you can give to the company your are applying for.
