Here it is....should I place things differently? How could I make it stand out?

I realize you haven't gotten any feedback here yet. I looked at your resume, and I'm not sure what to say. I've never seen one arranged like that, and I can't decide if I think it is different enough that it will get noticed or if it's arranged in such a way that people will glance and pass it by. For all I know, this is the "new" way to do resumes!

I'm used to the design where you list your jobs first and include those "competency bullets" under the appropriate jobs. I can see why your approach would be neat in a different way- offering information right away on where your skills lie. If you do keep it separated like that, I would move employment history up above the special training (just switch them), or maybe even put it before the competencies as well.

Good luck getting the gen ed job you want!

I appreciate your feedback.

I arranged it like that because all teaching jobs are kind of the same so I'd be repeating myself for each job.

Also, my last 6 years have been sped and I didn't want to highlight that. I'll work up another version and ask some IRL friends to pick a favorite. Thanks again!

My last and most recent resume looks just like yours.

After 6 years of trying to get a full time position, and not getting the job after the interview, I had my cousin, who is in public relations help me redo my resume and cover letter and that is exactly how she did my resume. That summer I got a full time position and had the most interviews, I'd ever had.

I agree with you, that most teaching jobs are similar and it would be very repetitive in the other format, but I haven't seen very many people with their resume set up like this.

Good luck though. I just wanted to let you know that there is someone else out there whose resume looked like that and got a job and this was 2 years ago.

Good luck!!!
