This is perfect! Now i have double motivation for doing it. Career, as opposed to job, here i come!
Family obligations will preclude me finishing this any time soon, but I will do it :)
I had a job scare not too long ago, so I had mine updated, but spent some more time on it today (should've really tomorrow, but I couldn't wait).

I do need to really update the stylization of mine, since I do work in the design field. Right now it is simple, but not too simple. I need to create something more cutting edge, but still keep within the lines of acceptable.

Chris-

I like the look of your resume. Very simple.
Done and attached, Brett. Thanks for the push, I just became an intern and needed to update my resume to move on new opportunities.

Impressive credentials! My only suggestion is to change the formatting a bit so you can try to get it on one page. It's a not a chisled in stone rule, but most HR experts suggest that a resume should only be one page.

I think this could be done by making the font a bit smaller. Other than that, very good!
Nice format if people would like to use it. I haven't really had a normal job so it is focused on leadership experience.

Suggestions welcome! :)

This is a really great format! I'd definitely suggest people use this. Nice and clean and very scanable.

Also, impressive credentials! Army Commendation Medal= very cool. Thank you for your service!
Done and done.

Not much to change - but always cathartic to trim it down to just over 1 page. No potential employer wants to wade through a 3-volume opus!

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the feedback. I would change it but I'm pretty happy in my job right now so the pressure is off to change it!

Cheers,
Mark
I've got a bit of advice, for those that are emailing resumes, or even printing them on the go, it would be a good idea to save them as a PDF. My reason why is this; you don't want to send it to a possible employer/printer that doesn't (for some off chance) have Word, or whatever program you created it in.

Especially now, even the newest version of Microsoft Word uses a new file extension: ".docx" and some computers won't be updated enough to open them. Just an FYI.
Excellent tip - some of my friends have experienced similar problems.
