i would like to know what an employer looks for in a resume when they are filling programming position?  I have exntensive work/college experience with visual basic and have started programming in c# 3 months ago, which involved implementing a simple backup application(C#).  Do I put keywords such as "ado.net", "Query Builder", "framework 3.0" on my resume under the my technical skills/languages section.  several suggestions on how to organize these keywords or what exactly to place on resume in terms of vb and c# will be greatly appreciated.

Should be pretty good!  Please remember that recruiters only know the keyword and then they will pass most qualified candidates the hiring person whom might know more details.  

I would prefer a seperate section for Database if I am going to hire someone, afterall the person review your resume only spend about 5 seconds to scan through it.  

The format I gave you should be pretty good!  I actually hired the person who submit his resume with this format 5 years ago after I scan through at least couple hundreds resumes.  Simple and down to the point!  

I have help about dozen friends got hired using this format too!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Maybe you need to change SQL Anywhere 11 to Oracle SQL Anywhere 11.

At least get you notice I think!  Time like this is hard and there are more experienced programmers out there willing to work for less and compete with you!  

Other none technical things I would recommand is that once you get an interview.  Don't ask how much they will pay you and just tell them that you are willing to work hard and learn from company if given an opportunity.  

Read some of these links too!

that is true, i have a job now but I was going to begin looking for something better soon - not only in terms of bigger salary but also for better programming experience (to me it is a combination of money and experience, if I get paid more money for just sitting around I would rather take a less paying job that will teach me more and help me advance in my career, thank you so much for helping out.
