Help with resume. Applying for an internal promotion within the company I currently work.

I am trying to move from Network Support Specialist to Network Administrator within the company I work.
I have a 2 page resume and have been in IT for 16 years, but I have never applied for an internal job before, always external so a bit weird for me to be interviewed by people I know quite well.

My main question is along the lines of how to write a profile.
My original profile was this:

"A dedicated, results-driven IT professional with 16 years of experience in planning, coordinating, implementing, and evaluating the effectiveness of systems, infrastructure, and staffing required to accomplish department projects and objectives. Specializes in network and system administration, file retention, server management, Exchange admin, Office 365 Admin, SCCM, and Active Directory. Now pursuing to advance my experience, skills, and expertise with an established organization who promotes teamwork and mutual growth."

I know the last part needs to be changed (or maybe all of it) because I am not pursuing that anymore, I'm pursuing a network admin position within the company I work, but I'm not exactly sure how to word it.

Another question I have is how one changes their resume for an internal promotion. Do you keep all of your past job history on there or does only your current job matter when you apply internally?

I feel like removing all of what I have done in the past is not a good idea because I have been a part of some large projects at my last 2 jobs and since that is what this focuses on I would like to leave them in there.

Any help would be appreciated.
