Question: I'm going to be applying for jobs as a bar back or bartender and I don't really know what to pt on my resume. I have a little experience bar backing, and some college credits at two colleges but no degree. I also have jobs as a cashier from around 3 years ago. Should I put all this on my resume? What else should I add?

There are basically two resume formats: The Reverse-Chronological Resume Format and The Functional Format. It looks like The Functional Format is better. format style Your Name address e-mail address phone cell Qualification Summary Highlight key functional skills. High-light your strongest skill areas. They should be skills that are most critical to the job. Skills Profile What did you learn that applies to your job list them (see examples below) clean bar, problem solver, customer care create mix drinks, responsible cash handler, quality control Major Accomplishments Connect key skills with results, for example Lead cashier - created a process by which cashier worked with the loss prevention department Problem Solver- brought resolution to customer concerns Work History This format de-emphasizes spotty work history. This form draws the attention to the employer of your strengths first. Education List your education in some cohesive fashion to show that you are a person in academic progress Recent results and accomplishments Be honest and think of things that you really accomplishe and may have been recognized. Most people under-estimate their accomplishments. You did learn something and you did excel or you would have lost your jobs. This is one of the formats that I know of; it comes from Richard H. Beatty's book: The Ultimate job search (see reference below) Good-luck and God bless you!

Besides setting all margins to 1", the most important criteria for setting up a professional resume besides relevant text, is "scanability." Here are some helpful tips: 1. Place just below your identification header [your hame, address, phone, email address] any Conditional Warning Statement such as "Confidential Resume,"Do Not Contact Current Employer," etc. 2. Always fill-in an Objectives category [just below the Conditional Warning Statement] and make sure that he Objective will contribute to the profitability of your future employer; 3. Select a mono-type font such as Helvetica, Arial, Courier or Times Roman; do not select any cursive handwriting styles which cannot scanned; 4. Keep font sizes within a range of 10 to 12 pts.; 5. Avoid styling text with a justified alignment, keep it flushed left; 6. Instead of using tabs to set up blocked text entries, generate a table and use the column and row settings accordingly; 7. Do not place an i.d. picture anywhere on the resume, this is a major taboo due to discrimination issues; 8. Do not place any graphic text [saved as .gifs] onto the resume since it may be overlooked during the scanning phase; 9. List at the very end of the resume your interests which should include travel experiences, language skills, social interactions such as golf, team sports, tennis, etc. In conclusion, the above helpful hints were designed to allow ease of scanning of your resume into PDF which can then be text captured for seach purposes by your potential employer. If the original resume was created in Word, WordPerfect or Mac Appleworks, it can be Saved As a PDF file which then can be saved as an email attachment. Otherwise, you can simply use a scanner and scan a hard copy of the resume and then save as a PDF file. Failure to conform the resume to appropriate fonts and styles as outlined above will result in rejection of the resume simply due to the inability of the scanning device to properly index relevant resume entries. Good luck!

Creating a resume is very easy, start with your basic information such as full name, phone number, email, and a brief description of why you would be a great asset to the company you are trying to apply to. Add your previous job experiences along with the dates and lastly your skills and education. Do not exceed a page, its recommended.

I was looking up the same thing. I went to Microsoft Word and searched for templates. Here are the steps to getting a resume template: 1. On the File menu, click New. 2. In the New Document task pane, under New from template, click General Templates. 3. Click the Other Documents tab. 4. Double-click Résumé Wizard. 5. If you do not see this wizard in the Templates dialog box, you might need to install it. 6. Follow the steps in the wizard. Hope this helps you.

A nonprofit organization is a business. It hires staff, pays rent, buys equipment, etc. Staff should be paid based on their level of responsibility and the required skills and academic background for such -- what are your areas of expertise? What university degree do you have that qualifies for you to help "those in need"? To start a nonprofit, you first need to get a very impassioned group of people together who support your idea and will provide some start up funding and serve on the board of directors, you need to get letters of endorsement from existing organizations saying this program is needed, you need to have data that shows your target group is in need whatever service it is that you want to provide and that they are not served otherwise, you need to have profiles of your staff showing they have experience and expertise, and you need to have a draft of what your first year's budget would look like (what expenses you expect to incur, what you expect to pay staff, etc.). You aren't going to have any money until you have donors, and you aren't going to have any donors until you have a viable, solid business plan for your nonprofits first five year's of existence. At some point, you need to decide if you are going to be a member of the board (and, therefore, not paid), or if you are going to be, say, the Executive Director,reporting to the board (and you can be paid -- and fired -- by the board). And then there's the paperwork: Starting a Nonprofit Organization http://www.managementhelp.org/strt_org/s...

I making a non profit as well. My attorney told me a few things I'll past to you. Put your living expenses in the company as an expense. Give your self a low payroll salary cause your expenses are within the company. And make your organization a not for profit instead of a non profit this gives you the ability to make a profit but its not the main goal of your organization. Hope this helps
