    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to work on my resume for the next school year. Please look it over and tell me if I am missing anything or what I should leave out. How long is the ideal resume supposed to be? Should I include professional development or organizations?
    Thanks in advance!!:thumb::)

    Here are some pointers that I learned:
    -Your resume should sell you in 20-30 seconds OR forget it!:help:
    -The length of your resume is AS long as needed, to be RELEVANT!
    (A 1-page one, is not a MUST!)
    -On each page, make sure you have on it; top right hand corner, your name and Pg number. (Pg 2 of 3), etc. This is in case your resume pages are separated accidently and they will be traced easily.
    -Your address is not needed anymore. You just need your name, phone number and email.
    -The best font is Times-Romans. Your name would be size 16
    and the rest in size 12.
    That's what I can recall for now.
    Good luck with your resume,
