Okay so the short version, I need help with my resume. It’s 4 pages and all these “experts” say it needs to be one to two pages. Keep in mind, these same “experts” told be AD Group policy Objects wasn’t a skill, but Customer service was…wtf?? Needless to say I ignored their advice. So I’m here asking the more technical crowd that has managed to become employed for some advice. I’m inserting my current resume (one complaint about this forum style, you can’t attach files) for your review.
The only way I can think of to parse it down and still get past all the filters is to make the first page a listing of skills and education. With the second page have my last 5 years of employment and job descriptions like “assisted various college students and staff with mobile device issues, sign in issues and site access issue as per college’s policies.”
So here’s my current resume:
