Resume checkup

Hello all,

I just want to say that this forum is a great resource, and it helped greatly through my CCNA run.

Currently, I work at a NOC. I have been there for nearly 3 years, and I have lost most of my fire and urge to go to work. Suffice to say, much work, too few workers. Pay isnt all that either.

I have been putting out feelers for new jobs, but to my surprise (and dismay), I barely get any calls back.
I was of the opinion that my resume was decent, but something has to be wrong with it.
I'm looking for Network Engineer jobs specificaly, but I wouldnt mind being a sort of jack of all trades at a smaller company.

If you dont mind, please take a look at my resume and let me know what I might be missing.

    Is this an exact copy of the resume you send out when applying for jobs?

    Seems legit. Info on the resume and his forum nick match his Linkedin profile.

    Your resume seems a little vague. What have you engineered?

    There's something else that's a little odd to me: Are you sure the job title really is "Network Engineer"? I'm pretty familiar with Computex in Houston thanks to two of my BFFs working there. There's about 5 folks in their Enterprise Networking Practice who are network engineers (btw, say hi to D.S and M.G for me and send them my love). My understanding of their NOC is that it's a 24/7 call center - no delivery services. If you're really doing all that different stuff and thus have the actual skills to backup your resume, why have you not looked at transitioning over to that practice? I know for a fact they deliver a multitude of solutions be it R&S, Security, Wireless and of course Data Center. It would obviously pay a lot more as well…..so why has that not been an option? Again, something doesn’t seem right.
