A More Concise Resume: Is It Acceptable?

As an active job-seeker, I’ve seen a lot lately about what is more important in todays resume building and it seems that a concise resume, built on the foundation of one’s skills seems to be the thing.

This is the template for the layout I came up with, and I’d sure appreciate some feedback on it, especially on what is missing.

    The “From – Until” & “Graduation date” kind of bug me. They look good aligned to the right margin, in a hard copy of the Word file for the resume, but they don’t seem to translate in this version.
