    Remember there are key things to a cv, make sure your home Lang is on it, country you were born in, your birth date, a run down of your subjects in school and other higher education, don't go on too much about exactly how you did your last job just the key duties. I work with a recruitment team I sort CV's out everyday. NO PICTURES, FRAMS, ART WORKS! Text and text alone use new times roman it's a great font easy to read in size 12 and for a heading use size 14 keeping things simple makes it easier to read your cv making you more likely to be picked for the interview! Put a small one paragrapher for an about me, so they get a run down of what you like are you a go getter? Are you friendly? Can you work under pressure? Name one bad quallity and explain how you plan or are improving it, it will show you can grow and help yourself.

    It seems to me that you need some help in deciding more specifically what kind of employment you want. You certainly have educational pre-requisites which may be applicable to certain jobs.

    May I suggest that you do the following:

    1. Get a complete inventory of your job-related skills and abilities. Either your state's employment department or local employment agencies will test you for your marketable skills—usually at little or no charge. Once you know more completely what your skills, aptitudes, and job interests are, you'll be in a better position to apply for a job.

    2. Do some research about what jobs are available in your geographic area. Contact your state employment department; and/or look in the newspaper classified ads; and/or consult with local employment agencies

    Employers are looking for people with skills and/or education which are marketable. In other words, they're willing to pay you for what you can do, if it will help their company meet its objectives and continue to be successful.

    The general rule is one page for every 10 years of experience—whether that experience is in actual full-time work, or in part-time jobs either during school or afterwards—and also in volunteer service in your community.

    Of course, NEVER make up anything about yourself—such as your education or experience—as employers can easily confirm what's true and what's not. And if they discover your fabrications after they hire you, that's usually grounds for immediate termination.

    Therefore, set down on paper—perhaps with a little help from someone who knows how to write a resume tailored to your particular background—exactly who you are and what you can offer—and do it 100% truthfully.

    It's also advisable to state your particular job objective at the top of your resume. In your case, you might emphasize your qualifications, such as looking for a position which can benefit from your detail-oriented skills, your ability to work independently and as a team member, your specific computer skills, etc.
