What should i write on my resume?

This is my first job…so this is also my first resume!~
I’m applying to Dominoes (it’s a pizza place) and i’m not sure which things to put into my resume… i have a few sample ones that have like

Education, highlights of qualifications, education, work history (i have none… how would i write that?) Community services, activities, interest, reference (what is that?), computer skills

Which ones should i include? Any ones that aren’t in the above list that i should also include?

    what you have listed are already the basic information needed. you can add reference persons. these are persons that (your relatives) can vouch your qualifications like your college professors, community leaders, officers of an organization wherein you are a member etc. include a driver’s license and other certificates or awards you had received. good luck!

    Many jobs don’t require a resume. Resumes are for people who have had 20 jobs in their lifetime. For most young people, a one-page application is enuf.
    The best resumes are like a letter to a friend you have not seen in many years. Tell about your life, your interests, your school, your family.

    References are people who know you. Someone the interviewer could call to verify that you will be a good worker.

    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!
