Resume review and rebuild

wweboywweboy Member Posts: 287 ■■■□□□□□□□
In another post I asked about professional resume services it was suggested I post my resume for everyone to review and give give recommendations. I've used this resume since out of college and have been updating as needed I'd like to rebuild my resume from the ground up I look forward to any criticisms and areas where I can improve.

    Right off the bat:

    What MCP(s) do you have?

    Elaborate on the results you achieved by performing those tasks. Put more things like that 75% increase in rollout productivity.

    I dont know the first thing about writing a good resume; however, if you go to you can create a profile and attach your resume. A professional resume person will read it free of charge and offer advice on some things you might consider changing.

    What helped me alot was putting a billeted summary on top of my resume. Just a few "highlights" of the resume to grab the attention of the reader. Things like years of experience, key skills they might be looking and any major points. Next I have Skills outlined in sections. OS, Software, Hardware, Networking and Programming (I know networking is covered under software and hardware but remember most HR people are clueless). Next is billeted experience from all jobs including network size and number of PCs supported. You don't want it to be long but not short either. Next is work history which is just name, address, phone number and job title. Next is education and then any miscellaneous information like currently working toward such and such cert.

    Right on. You don't want to get too detailed with your resume or else you'll sound like a broken record during the interview.
