A few things:
You spelled "whether" wrong
I would put in there you have strong leadership skills and enjoy working as a team.
Mention you are a confidant speaker
instead of this:
"Work well with others: Enjoy the company of other people. Rarely will ever argue, and makes friends very quick. "
Try this:
Enjoys the company of others, makes friends quickly, never initiates conflict

When you say "rarely argues" it sounds kinda.. off

Also-
"
Initiative: Enjoy working very much. Very self starting, no motivation is necessary"

you should say you are "self motivated" instead of "no motivation necessary"

Thats my little bit of imput =o)

What type of job are you looking to get? Usually resumes work best when they are written to fit the job you are applying for. That way you can highlight the experience and skills that fit that particular job as your strengths.

Also, I would completely get rid of the part about how you might be more productive working alone....frankly it sounds kind of weird. What you may want to say is something more along the lines of, "self starter who works well even with minimal supervision."

I would also drop "rarely ever argue." It just makes you think ....hmmm but he does sometimes argue!?

I would also get rid of "high levels of hormones" LOL Although that did make me laugh...so who knows it could work for ya.

Other than that I would just clean it up a bit. In some places it is wordy and repetitive.
Good luck to you on your job search!

here is a good web site that helps you organize your resume....maybe it will help.

http://jobstar.org/tools/resume/tempfun.cfm

I do highly recommend having your goal/objective at the top of your resume. And I would recommend changing it for each job you apply for. The goal/objective part shouldn't discuss the fact that you are on the honor roll. That should go somewhere else......accomplishment section perhaps. The goal should focus on what kind of job you are looking for and it should be specific. For example for a job at the lfs....

Objective: To work in an environment that enriches my love of aquaria and allows me to learn more while putting to good use the knowledge and experience I have already gained.

That's a horrible sentence off the top of my head....so don't use that but you get the basic idea of how an objective should sound.

Being reliable is one thing, but do not state that you will work ill.

Yes definitely take out the working sick part .... I work in an office of 500 people and trust me if one person comes to work sick it ends up an epidemic!!!!! This is why most companies give sick time, they expect people to be sick every now and then!

If you have Microsoft Word it has a pretty good Resume Wizard that you should check out! If not search the net for resume help and you'll come up with a million hits!


Good Luck .....



PS - you should send a % of your first paycheck to every member that helped ya out! ... just kiddin!
