Need Input Regarding My Resume Please


Tucson, Arizona
Best answers
I have been looking for a job for a month and a half since graduating from Carrington College, and I would like to revise my resume to make it more appealing to employers. Specifically, I would like to broaden the scope of my objective statement to clarify that I am open to more than just coding jobs. I would love to have input from anyone in the field who may have insight into what language could make my resume more attractive to more employers. Thank you all for your help.
