    Do you currently have all of the certifications listed? I couldn't tell from the wording on your resume. If you do not current hold those certs, do not list them on your resume. Please clarify.

    I would recommend beginning the resume with a professional summary section, followed by education, followed by a section for your certifications.

    Each job description should begin with a high-level overview of your daily duties, responsibilities, commonly used technologies, etc. Then use bullet points to highlight special achievements, projects, promotions, etc.

    You technical skills section can be converted into a nice professional summary, and then this section can be deleted.

    Please refer to the following thread for an excellently formatted and worded resume. This is the one that I consider the golden standard on these forums:

    The certs are listed under Certifications rewarded(I dont see the confusion there. )
    I was on the fence about a summary, but I do agree with you.

    Thanks for the pointers. I will make these adjustments.

    goal here is to have a solid resume, you never know when you might need it.

    thank again

    Pay attention to capitalization. In my book this screams lack of attention to detail. I spotted "esxi", "Hyper-v", "Windows server", and "Noc". Also noticed the font in the skills sections in 10pt and other section are 9pt.

    I really didn't notice that. I will have to go over this with a fine tooth comb.
