This is a close (not exact) copy of my engineering resume.
Resumes are made to be very simple, in fact, they should only be one page for professional positions. In general, a resume is used to get a 'bite' from a company. The company you apply at will use the resume as a disqualifer so that they don't need to look through so many applications for a position.
Often resumes are rejected for grammar, spelling, and other careless errors. Show that you can be effective by cleaning everything up and reviewing your resume each time you send it.
You vastly increase your chances of getting a job if you vary your objective statement to fit the position you are applying for. Include company name, and make sure that the company name isn't just interchangeable. Be specific. your objective statement is really a set of goals you have in working with that company. Be creative. In 5 years you want to be a manager, right?
Always send a cover letter SPECIFIC to the company you are applying for!
