    Honestly, try to minimize all the security positions possibly make it into one post... Go more in depth about your computer experience... If your applying for an it position they are not going to want to know about security

    I'd remove the references section because if they want references they will ask. I'd also remove the security guard certifications from the resume as that's not relevant relevant to an IT position. You are applying for an IT job I assume?
