    1. Summary is too long. I am not compelled to read down, it's boring.

    2. Technical is not technical enough, it's a filler. A list of "Things, protocols and programs" should be short, relevant and listed somewhere else. Experience and education first.

    3. Work experience is too bullet'ee. I don't care, as a hiring manager, that you configure Device A. Tell me about your achievements, projects, resource optimization, cost saving measures, etc. Otherwise you're just a gear-head with no business acumen. Did you lead any projects to attempt to or successfully automate tasks? All I see you doing is configuring with no context to support it.

    4. Education should be on top if you're not a Mid-Sr level role, IMO.

    5. Remove "References Upon Request". This is a filler.

    6. The formatting is off and makes me nervous. I dislike the Education section, why is certifications #4 in a list of bullets?

    "Experience working with the following Linux OperatingSystems Centos and Ubuntu. I have working experience"

    Your summary made me stop reading after I saw the word "experience" twice in two sentences. Avoid using the same word multiple times. Also, Operating Systems needs a space.
