OBJECTIVE       Specify entry-level position desired.  You may want to include 
                it in a brief career objective statement that identifies long 
                term goals or how you can benefit the employer.

                go here or with Activities/Honors.

EXPERIENCE      Either list experience according to importance per objective 
                OR list most recent first and other jobs below.  Keep the 
                format the same for each experience and include job title, 
                company, city, state, dates, duties.  You may include any 
                volunteer experience that is related to job objective.  Use
                computer's bold and underline commands to highlight key words.

                Dates are best kept in same place for each entry; i.e., at 
                end, at right, or at left under Experience.  Year or Month/Year

                will have a positive impact on the potential employer.
