Can anyone give me some tips on what should and should not be on my resume for a job I'm applying for as a Production assistant.
I am only a high school grad but have some television and film skills such as being certified by NOCTI for TV Production, and certified by adobe for Photoshop and premier pro CS5. I also graduated top of my TV production class making it through all 6 class in my 4 years of high school.
I also have experience working on several "productions" such as corporate videos as a camera operator and production assistant. I have also work on several films, one being for the 48 hour film project, one being a student film at the Art Institute.
should I include any of this stuff and what else should I put in there?

What kind of PA? If it's an office PA, knowledge about word, exel, etc. is a good skill to mention if you have it.
If it's a set PA, let them know if you have a liscense or not (as some set PAs are drivers).
If you have on set experience, mainly tell them about the professional ones (not helping a friend with his fan film).
Aside from that you don't need 'experience', just the ability to work hard and do the job right. So put what you feel is needed."Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms." - Alfred Hitchcock
