Co-Director of Education Resume

Distinctive design features help capture the reader's attention: the shaded box containing the contact information, the horizontal lines interrupted by centered headings to delineate the resume's sections, and the shaded boxes at the top and foot of page two. Hollow circle bullets are not common, so these too help make the resume distinctive. Second-page sections on continuing education, volunteer work, professional affiliations, and certifications add weight to the resume.
