SOME POINTS TO NOTE:
You can see how the addition of blank lines between sections improved the readability of this résumé
The contact details centered at the top (with no "Personal Summary" heading either) are impressive and easy to find! In this case, using the centering with left justified and indented text in the rest of the résumé does not present a problem for the reader.
However, no contact phone numbers (again) for referees - and believe me, employers do want to check with referees from time to time!
The repetition of the words "School Certificate" and "School Assessment" in the Education section is a bit disappointing and tends to affect the overall look and feel of Pat's résumé
The skills based resume is a much nicer format!
