You may want to add a section for relevant skills. Also, watch that your bullet points maintain consistent appearance by not flowing past one line.

Your resume is clean and professional. It gives employers a good reason to take a closer look, and you have a great education record to back it up. If you have more experience, include that, and eliminate some of the unrelated items. Keep your resume to one page as you have done. It looks great!

The language of the letter sounds impersonal and cookie-cutter-ish. I doubt a letter like this would really convince someone to look into your resume unless they had very few applicants, which in this economy is not likely. Make the introduction more personal and engaging and let your work experience and abilities show.

The resume has some potential, but as it stands, I would throw the resume in the trash before I finished reading it.

Shorten to one page. To shorten it, you may want to not include some less relevant or less recent work history. Bullet points are good, but don't describe your duties here, describe skills that you used or accomplishments that make you valuable for the current job you are seeking. Also see notations.

As someone else notated, the dates seem to fit better on the right side next to the location. Also, you may want to consider making your header stand out more. I can't tell because it's blacked out, but do something bold and simple with definite character that will stand out when an employer first sees your resume.

As Big4 said, shorten or eliminate the narrative text. It won't be read. Use some of it in your cover letter and save the rest for an interview. You also may want to include education and other related activities. Try to keep everything on one page. If an employer isn't sold after the first page, they aren't going to continue to the second. Also, see notations.

Keep your resume to one page. See my notations. Include some convincing experience, things that you have done that will catch my eye. It doesn't all have to be official jobs you've had. Think of volunteer positions you've held or groups that you've actively participated in and your role in those groups.

Great resume! See notations that I made on the page. Condense your resume to one page. You don't need to include everything, just key selling points. Other information can be included in a cover letter or saved for the interview.

As an employer, I'd have a couple hundred resumes to read. Nothing stands out to me in yours, its all jumbled together and I wouldn't take the time to read it. Focus on giving a brief highlight of your experience and skills. You can give more details in an interview. You MUST keep your resume to one page. It seems like you've got some great skills, but I had to scour your resume to find them. Showcase your strengths near the top of your resume to catch my eye. Use white space to make it easier to read. If you feel that there is something you absolutely must tell me before an interview, include it in your cover letter, but don't feed me sentences in your resume. Bullet points will do.

Looks like you have lots of related experience. Instead of arranging your experience chronologically, highlight the strongest experience near the top. I might even leave out BW3's (although they're great!) and make some room to display some of your more related experiences. You can leave out the objective statement, the employer knows you want the job. If you have something to say about your objective, it fits best in a cover letter. Also, for your skills, list things that set you apart from other applicants. MS Office skills won't impress anyone but grandma.
