Default IT/Developers please critique my resume

What do you guys think of my resume. I just got out of school, but also just found out that I have to go back and take 2 classes and its entirely possible I may not get my degree. Do I need a degree to get a permanant job or is it more what I can do?
thanks in advance.

Pretty good overall..

But, I would do it in this order:

Experience/projects

School

Honors

And says 'preferences available on request' is sufficient.

You kinda want to tone down the school and play up your experience..

I dont want to put too much emphasis on school as I dont have my degree yet. How important is this if i'm looking for a develompent position(web or c++), should I even put on the b.s. C.I.S on there since I dont have it yet?

Also should I be going for entry level stuff since the markets bad and no degree, or should I go for mid level web development type stuff.

thanks again

I agree with nt5k - definitely put experience/projects above your school - you have relevant work experience - show it off.

You might want to put a skills section (I know it seems stupid) but it really helps when poeple are hiring for a specific skill set. Nothing more frustrating to read through a wordy resume to see if they can know XYZ.

you should reword your project descriptions a little bit.

for ex.

b4
"Developed a web site that made use of PHP/MySql to handle content management. Made it simple for the websites owner to modify and maintain their site without knowing any html. All changes to the site were handled online through PHP scripts."

after
Developed dynamic website content using PHP/Mysql. This enabled the user to modify and maintain content without any html knowledge. All necessary updates were executed online via PHP scripts.



you get the idea. make it sound like your some type of geeky precisly speaking engineer.

Hey - here's a quick one: I have IE6.0, and your HTML resume doesn't appear right. I have a default res. on one monitor of 1280x1024, and the other is 1600x1200-- it was all off- things weren't lined up right.

I tried changing my res. and it looked a lot better, but the lines were still off on the left. It's probably just your "working copy" but just wanted to give you a heads up before you sent it off to anybody.

on the whole, not too bad either IMHO. Agree with what ^ they said. And don't go in expecting $94k a year like 1999 Those days are LOooooooong gone, but good talent is still as hard to find now as it was back then.

Good luck!

thanks for all the comments

the html resume looks a little funny yes, I just had word save it in html for all the people that maybe didnt want to look at a .doc file. The 2nd link with the .doc extension should come out right, and theres no macro virii in it or anything.

What kind of pay should I expect and what markets are open right now? I'm in the bay area and its really tough for me to find much here, but I'm living with parents so its not too big a deal. Are they hiring developers in any of your areas?

thanks.

Here's the one thing I like when reviewing resumes - putting years of experience, in order, with the technology, so something like this...

Experience / Computer Skills:
7 years: C/C++
6 years: ASP/SQL server 7
4 years: PHP/MYSQL
2 years: Unix Shell Scripting/Sed/AWK/TCL/TK
1 year: Visual Basic

That makes it incredibly easy for me to find out who has the experience I am looking for.

Otherwise, how do I know you have not just done them for a month?
