Resume Help/Proof-reading? :)

Hey there, was wondering if any of you guys could help me out a bit with proofreading/resume edit tips for my resume. It' a pretty basic resume with just retail stuff on it but I would like to make it as optimal and flawless as possible.

Please and Thanks

Re: Resume Help/Proof-reading? :)

I'm a recruiter, so I can have a look for you. My work is mainly based in the UK market though, so it might be a little different. When would you need it by?

HA! funny that, My partner from RSA is also a recruiter in London

If you need a hand with your resume, I'm happy to look at it aswell, I was part of the CV/Careers office at University who dealt with making CV's optimal, so I can give you some common pointers :-) but looks like you have enough help aswell

Re: Resume Help/Proof-reading? :)

Just a note. US resume formats are generally different to the UK CV. IMO you'd be better off going to a local resume service. Some public libraries offer that free of charge. Or look online. There's lots of guidelines and templates. Using that approach will help you craft something that you feel best presents yourself.

Re: Resume Help/Proof-reading? :)

Actually, I'm done, but I just wanted to review something because Adobe Reader is being a bitch about reviewer comment identity. It is annoying to no end, and I've already spent an hour on that alone.

I'll send it back today. It was fun.
