What should go on a recent college graduate's resume?

I am helping someone put together a post college graduation resume and we are unsure how much high school and college work experience to include. How can we show that this person is hard-working and dependable without it just looking like a list of retail and food service jobs?

This person worked a number of jobs in high school and to help with expenses while in college, but it ends up looking like a big list of low-level jobs not at all related to current career goals. The list includes several retail and food service type jobs. Could these be lumped together under an addional experience type heading?
This person has had one professional job since college (although in a different field) and an internship while in college. How can we show on the resume that this person is hard-working and dependable without it just looking like a list of low-level teenage type jobs?
