Try to quantify your experience further. You have a nice mix of work experience and by using numbers and $ amounts to explain your histiry you will more effectively connect with recruiters.
Should say "expected, May 2009"
In general, your descriptions require the reader to figure out what you can do for them. Unless you are applying for something that involves doing EXACTLY WHAT you describe doing in the resume, it is up to you to highlight the skills and accomplishments you offer the employer. Dont make the reader stop and try to figure out what skills you bring!
Consider the RESULTS of your work - think of adding "resulting in...." at the end of some of these and quantifying what you brought to the table.Also, leave a space before and after your dashes in dates:January - August 2005.
Keep it to one page, your resume will be more effective.
Nice skills section be sure to add it to your one page resume.
For awards and all of this - select the ones that were most important. No reader wants to look at a long list of awards. Stick to a one-pager at this point of your career.
Hippocrane, nice work with your resume. I particularly like how you've summarized your work experience section. I believe you are better off with a 1 page resume, as the second page does not add much to your professional resume (with the exception of the skills section.) Best of luck with your job search.
You have a great start, but I would advise that you try to bump it up a notch by focusing on skills and accomplishments instead of a list of what you've done. Today, resumes need to be more than a laundry list of "stuff." Employers want you to do all of the work to highlight what you can do for them! I'm happy to help.
