Entry level/Zero Experience resume review

--chris----chris-- Member Posts: 1,518 ■■■■■□□□□□
If someone could review and provide feedback i would appreciate it. I have zero professional IT experience outside of what you would expect from someone who has built PC's, installed OS at home, setup SOHO's, etc...

My goal is to get hired in anywhere that can provide me hands experience, even if its 1-2 days a month ill take it. I know its unlikely to happen give my current level of education in this field, but i feel i should be trying.

edit: New resume

    I like the blue topic headers. But I think the resume could use a lot of work. It's hard for me to tell you what exactly to change tho, since I don't exactly have my own resume writing skills down pat.

    I think you should take out your references and work to get the resume within a page. Not that your resume in general needs to be a single page, but I don't think references should go on a resume anyway and it doesn't make sense that they are the reason why it's going over.

    Personally, I think you should get rid of the leadership title. For your first IT job you're more than likely not going to be in a leadership type role. The bullets within that section are great tho - maybe classify them as "projects" instead and explain them a bit more.
    Goals for 2018:
    Certs: RHCSA, LFCS: Ubuntu, CNCF CKA, CNCF CKAD | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer, AWS Solutions Architect Pro, AWS Certified Security Specialist, GCP Professional Cloud Architect
    Learn: Terraform, Kubernetes, Prometheus & Golang | Improve: Docker, Python Programming
    To-do | In Progress | Completed

    Thanks, i appreciate it. Great idea on changing leadership out for a projects category. I think that your right, leadership wont be used at all but an ability to plan and execute projects would be good to demonstrate.

    I updated the OP to reflect the suggested changes. I agree, that looks much better...im not sure why i didn't think to put that way.
