  1. This looks pretty good, one suggestion I have is to format the dates so they all align to the right, giving them a more streamlined look. Otherwise, it is simple and yet still includes all the relevant experience and education. Good luck!

    I would second Jesse’s comments about aligning the dates. Also, depending on what kind of jobs you are applying for, you could reconfigure some of the details to highlight your museum experience. One easy way to do this would be to add a summary at the top and customize it for positions you will be applying for. All in all, a very nice resume.
