Delete the objective. Those things were an unfortunate trend that have finally run their course.

Work experience first. Your past jobs should also be in the past tense. I.E. You *provided* administrative/secretarial support. What did you use to arrange meetings? Microsoft Outlook is the industry standard these days. If you know how to use Outlook, mention it there: "Used Microsoft Outlook to arrange meetings." In general, mention the software packages you used. "Operated a desktop computer," is much too vague.

Then education, college only. If you’re in college, they’ll take for granted that you graduated some sort of high school. Also, just list your major. Listing individual classes is a waste, they don’t want your transcript.

Regarding your skills and qualifications, delete them. Yours are all subjective. That you dress professionally, for example, is their lowest expectation and your style might be open to debate. This section ought to include office skills or certification. "Certified Microsoft Office Expert," or "Average Ten Key Input Speed of 72 characters per minute." Something quantifiable and that you prove in an interview – your ability with the dictaphone belongs here. Three years of experience they can calculate on their own from the resume.

Good luck!
