Computer Skills Resume
It should come as no surprise that the computer technology field is dependent upon data and systems to get that data.
Your skills and experiences should be not only easy to see on your resume, but you should also try and present the skills in a logical format. For example, if you mention that you have word processing training. It might be helpful to follow up that section with more specifics about what you learned. For instance, you can mention your experience with mail merges, creating business templates with headers and footer, or perhaps even you experience with creating macros.
The most important piece of advice that I can give you from my experience with choosing candidates from a pile of resumes is that your resume should be in a logical format and present the pertinent experience in an easy to find manner. If you are applying for a database related job you should make sure you database experience is presented first in a readable and aesthetically pleasing format. Here is an example template to give you an idea of what you can do.
Keep in mind your experience and skills will look better or worse depending on format. So although I am providing a general template your best bet is to create an tweak your resume to best suite your skills and present the resume in eye pleasing manner.

EXPERIENCE: List all pertinent experience as it relates to the position you are looking to apply for. If you don't have real world experience make sure to list any educational projects and certifications that you have accumulated. Also try and include any experience that exemplifies any leadership skills and self-reliance. Most managers want to know that you will catch on quickly and do not need supervision throughout the whole day
