Default Critique my resume!

I have begun preparing my resume for the GDC08 in Austin, TX. I really want it to be the best that it can be. I am hoping to land a job as a QA tester or some other entry level title within the coming months.

What do you think of the layout? Content? Quality? Any advice on how to make it better and how to make it stand out more is greatly appreciated it.

You can download the DOC file here: http://geocities.com/thegooch69/Nich...esumeGDC08.doc

Thanks in advance!

Looks pretty decent. Just a couple of things:

- Don't link to your blog if it contains personal information/posts. Link to your portfolio and make sure you work is easily accessible. In blogs, posts tend to get archived/moved/hidden under other links which makes it hard to navigate.

- I would be tempted to test you on your proficiency in Office and expert knowledge on Windows XP and Vista purely because of the reason that everyone tends to write this in their skills but actually aren't.

I like your suggestion with creating a portfolio website instead of posting a blog. I will begin to do so.

Yes, thank you. Trying to get as many opinions as possible.
