As I said before, you'll do well.

Apart from what's already been said I'd go onto Google and look at layouts of resume's. That should give a better idea of the overall presentation of what a resume should look like and what it should contain.

Have you done up a job application as well?

Anyway, hope this helps.

Is this your first job? What about past work experience?
