What should I include on a resume?

edited June 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Josh from SteelPixel.com (the guys who do the Web 2.0 Show) hosting asked me to send him a resume. I'm so lost, what should I include? Any good links?

    So, I should include that I teach tennis even though it's not web related?

    As a general rule, if the skills you have through it are transferable and relevant in the target context, then mention it. I'm not sure that teaching tennis has much to do with web design, though. Possibly if you were to be teaching something, then the skill of "instruction" could be relevant. It could possibly be an interest or something anecdotal, like "when I'm not at a computer, then you can find me on the tennis court...", but only where things can be pretty informal.

    Important: Also check your spelling.

    ooh cool what's the resume for? Will you be on the web 2.0 show if you get accepted?

    Also yeah keep the resume bare minimum, only with the relevant information in the field you're applying.

    Nah, it would be for design work.

    Also, if you find yourself using the same word over and over (like "open", for instance), employ the services of a thesaurus.

    My English teacher would be proud I remembered this: Take seeking out of your objective. (Seeking is not the objective, the position is) Put open minded in the above sentence, (its all alone as a single word) and take 'the' out of 'the latest technologies' (parallel sentence structure) Currently attending high school may be a bit redundant if its well known in your area that the school is a high school. Include clubs, college or AP courses, under education--Putting FBLA on my resume landed me my first tech job. It doesn't really do you justice. Maybe include a link to a online portfolio? This can also be used as an competitive advantage to check your server logs and see who was interested enough to look. EDIT: Oh, and GPA if its above 3.5
