resume help

I cannot find any of my old resumes. I haven't looked for a job since the summer of '06. I've been a SAHM since having my DD in Sept. '07. DH just found out his hours are being scaled back so I need to find me an easy part time min-wage job, for like 20 hours a week. I don't know what to put on my resume. I haven't had a min. wage type job in a decade. I was in the field of education. I have experience teaching and being a teachers aid. Since 2000 I have been a student or a teacher or a SAHM. I worked at Subway in my late teens, but that is really the extent of my experience.

  • Now, I have many useful skills and a good education, but how much of it should I put down in a resume when my goal is to obtain a job that in retail or fast food? I don't want to seem boastful or over qualified. I just want a simple job. One that I can go to for a few hours in the evening and then leave behind when I clock out. When I am ready to re-enter the field of Ed. I will, but now is not the time

  • I can message you my resume for a example if you want. You could use it as a outline.
