Mental Health Worker Resume
Without the brief Certification/Skills section on page two, this resume's format would be chronological. Enclosing the name in a shaded box makes the reader see the name first, even though the contrast between the letters of the name and the shaded background is less than that between black letters and a white background. With experience limited to part-time work and work during academic semesters, bullets point to duties and responsibilities at the various workplaces.
