References needs to say available upon request. <p><Chat> <Matto says, "What's up?"

I think she means that she has references, but like hell she's putting them on the web. Also, it's better to actually put references on your resume than to say "Available on request."

It looks pretty damn nice. One thing I've heard quite a few times is to list any and all skills you have, irrelevant as you think they may be. From martial arts to computer proficiency, a prospective employer might see something impressive in even a "minor" accomplishment. Other than that, good luck! With a resume like that, you won't have much trouble finding a job. <p>
