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.

If you email me at email@example.com I'll send you my resume to see how I format it. Your Objective is too passive. You need to show results.
Example: you didn't "supervise" 8 sales people, you "led" 8 sales people and grew sales 10%, raised customer satisfaction scores 15%, etc.
"Inventoring" is not a word.
It looks like you're about 25 so your resume should be on one page. Cut to the chase.
Then get out and go face to face and get the job you want. Don't leave until you meet the decision maker. Offer to work for free for one or two weeks with the understanding that if you pass their tests that they pay you for those two weeks then hire you.
You must be bold in these times. Timid salespeople have skinny kids, as old Zig Ziglar says.Source(s): Wes Schaeffer, http://www.thesaleswhisperer.com

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.
