Here are quick, easy instructions on how to write a resume, and an answer to one of life's burning questions.
I'd like to thank everyone who commented below with suggestions that I've added. Along with jeffreyf for pming me his suggestions.
Step 1: What you'll need
To write a resume, you're going to need MS Word, or any other writing software..but don't use wordpad, or notepad...they suck. You want it to have variable fonts, and things like that.
Depending on what your resume is for, you'll want some of these sections:
Honors and Awards
DOB (If you feel it's needed)*
Once you know which sections apply to your resume, you can continue.
*Your ability to get some jobs may depend on your age, so for a job like that, include it. If you don't think that your age is important, you can leave it out.
Step 2: Header
It's good to have a nice, but simple header. One of my favorites is like shown. Your name is on the left, with a font like Baskerville Old Face, and larger than the rest, with a horizontal rule underneath. And then having contact information to the right. I wasn't sure how to make a horizontal rule in Word 07, so I just used the line draw tool. Make sure you don't have a border on the text box that contains contact information. Also, remember not to use any wacky fonts. Use simple, easy to read fonts.
