generally no need for a cover letter in an interview. anything that a cover letter would tell them will be covered in the interview. cover letters are just to help get the interview.

No need for a cover letter. You generally send that in along with your resume when you submit it, in order to get an interview.

Phatferd, if you ever have trouble getting everything on one page, do what I do. Have a master Resume with EVERYTHING you could ever want to put on it. Make it as long as you want. There's a name for this type of resume, but I can't place my finger on it. It's not the CV, it's the other type that's much less frequently used. But, then, when you're applying for jobs, start a new document, copy and paste your master Resume into it, and tailor it to the job you're applying for until it's down to the front of 1 page again. It's a great way to make sure you're not forgetting anything you may have previously nixed from your resume that could be helpful for a job you're applying for now. ;-D

Also, I haven't forgotten about my resume format. I'll be back in Albany tomorrow evening and if I don't remember then, definitely this weekend.

The "2000-2002" in you work experience shouldn't be italicized.

As promised, I found a copy of one of my old resumes I used to get my current job, so here's what the top looks like. I've gotten lots of compliments on the formatting, so maybe you like to try it, maybe not. Either way, here:

Thanks Hort. I like it a lot. I will definately take some reference from it.

By the way. I know where you live now! If I'm ever in NY and you see a weird guy with a 5 o'clock shadow it's me.
