    I'm sorry to be critical.I am just trying to help.
    I am a supervisor, and hire people. If I saw that resume it would go right in the trash without a thought..
    You obviously have a computer. You must have Microsoft Works or something similar on it.If you have Works, it has several blank Resume forms in diferent formats you can fill out that look professional.
    As said in above post take a course on how to write a resume or talk to the employment office they will help you. There are also employment services who will write you one for a small fee.
    If you want a good job you have to sell yourself. There are plenty of people around with your kind of experience for employers to choose from. You have to stand out from the crowd.
    Also make sure your spelling and grammar are correct.
    I can get away with bad grammar. I have a seceratary.

    Although this was done in 5 minutes and can be improved upon, use this format and change as needed and print on one page. Hand this in to shops and see if you can garner some interest. Go in and introduce yourself, hand them the resume, thank them for their time and leave. Don't put them on the spot and wait for an answer. You can call in a few days to ask if any opportunities exist.
