    Which CCNA do you have? Data Center? Routing & Switching? Service Provider? Put that on there.

    If you are going for an IT job, you might want to put the language and education sections down below the certifications and work experience, have the most IT-relevant stuff up at the top of the page as much as possible. HR people will see the IT stuff first that way.

    Or maybe put just the Certifications line up at the top and leave the rest of the technical skills section below the work experience section.

    So it would go:

    Name & address & phone & email
    Professional experience
    Technical skills

    Just my opinion.

    Check out ptilsen's resume template linked below. I think you would benefit from an established resume format like that one.

    I think you should expand upon the Profile section (and maybe rename it to "Professional Summary") and focus more on your professional accomplishments and education. I'm not sure how effective it will be for you to mention video games at the top of your resume (unless you are looking to specifically apply to jobs within the gaming industry). I will link you to some good documentation and examples on how to write this section effectively.

    I would also recommend creating a separate section for your certifications, and list that immediately after the education section.

    The Languages section should probably go at the very bottom of your resume. Alternatively, you can mention that you speak multiple languages in your profile, and then drop this section altogether.

    Regarding the Technical Skills section, instead of typing out a laundry list of software, technologies, and protocols, and I would rather you expand upon this information and explain HOW you are proficient in these skills, especially in a business/enterprise environment. Ideally I would recommend that you incorporate this info into your professional experience, and then perhaps drop the skills section altogether.

    You should definitely expand upon your professional experience section. You worked that job for over a year but I don't have a good idea of what did there. Each job description should begin with a high-level overview of your daily duties and responsibilities, and then use bullets to highlight special achievements, projects, promotions, etc. Don't rely solely on bullets like this. I will link you to a resume that's a great example on how to format and write this properly. I would recommend expanding on your experience as much as possible, especially as it relates to the specific job that you are applying for. Again, tailor the resume for the job position, if you can. (that will become easier in the future once you accrue more experience)

    This is an excellent resume guide with example resumes, a huge list of action verbs, sample summaries, etc:


    This thread contains a fantastic example of a properly formatted and written resume (ptilsen's resume):
