    I see grammatical errors. The green wavy line in Word is to indicate possible grammatical errors. Imagine you're a Hiring Manager, and you open up a resume in Word and it's full of green wavy lines, it doesn't help. I think that person overlooking your resume just starts looking for errors, I think this way, cause that's exactly what I just did. (I'm not an English major so take my advice with a grain of salt.)

    This part above is clearly 2 different font sizes.

    IMO, these are 2 different points, thus deserve their own bullet points.
    I think bullet points should be no more than one line, because then it becomes a sentence. (This is highly debatable)

    I think you can google and find a different format... I just did a quick search and found this... Help Desk Resume, Help Desk Sample Resume, Help Desk Free Resume, Help Desk Resume Formats and basically, just copy the style of it.

    I didn't look through all of them, but I like #3 formatting

    May want to drop Windows 9x, Windows NT, and DOS.

    They are pretty old. (Maybe even drop Windows 2000)

    Your intro is too long. Work history go before certification, skill and school.
