Sample Chronological Resume - Student

Note from Yana:
The Problem: Charlie has a learning disability and can't make change or deal with cash registers. He felt more confident after we created this resume emphasizing the kinds of jobs he DOES feel comfortable with and showing his qualities and skills of value to employers. I made a point of using HIS language as much as possible, so he'd be comfortable with the results.

Note from Electra:
Charlie hooked me with his list of qualities followed by concrete examples of what he has done! Employers are looking for what Charlie offers: reliability, honesty, people-skills, willingness to learn and do your share
