    If you are going to put an Objective in then I would suggest you gear it towards the type of job/environment/company you are looking to work in. The current one you have isn't really an objective but rather a synopsis of your skills.
    (Example Objective Statement: To obtain a position utilizing my experience, education, and desire for a challenging career working in a team oriented environment managing up to an enterprise level network, with the chance to optimize all network hardware and resources, and where the opportunity exists to grow and make a positive contribution to the overall success of my employer.)

    You definitely should have a skills section highlighting everything you have done (don't forget all of the stuff you learned in school). Try to expand it a little to show everything you have done.

    For you Work Experience I would suggest leaving out that it is a part or full time job as well as if it is volunteer. If asked in an interview then this is when you could bring it up. I am not sure if this is a brief version of your resume but the grammar and spelling needs to be cleaned up a little.

    I would also suggest putting in your Work Experience how many users and devices you managed at each job. Also I think you should avoid saying things like "Assisted" and just state the task/s you did (ie Troubleshot various software and account..........).

    Ya it is a rough version. I kinda wrote everything using past tense. Later I found those mistakes, I have already fixed them. But thanks for reminding me .

    In my resume I didn't really write the lines about volunteer job/student job. It's just to let u guys know, what I have done so far.

    Overall, the resume looks good to me..you should definitely add Technical skills section. Also, mention your work
    experience first and then write about your professional certifications and education since most of the times employers
    are more interested to know the kind of job you have been working on icon_cool.gif

    It's always good to quantify anything you've done with a job. Supported 1000 PCs, created an automated system that increased profits by 20%. It makes your skills more concrete and ultimately more desirable for the person reading your resume.

    My college adviser gave me a really great tip. He told me to put everything I've done, all my experience, all my personal projects, whatever on a master word file. Then depending on the job, take out what's irrelevant.

    Just my two cents. Your resume looks great though. Best of luck to you on the job hunt.

    take out the ccent, you have your ccna, so no need for the other on there. also, dont put currently studying for ccnp. And if your going to have a section on your resume for certs, no need to have them listed under your name.

    I hope you dont include the parts that are in the open & closed parentheses.
