Resume Question

  Asked By: Sekhar    Date: Aug 28    Category: MOSS    Views: 751

Well it's that time, I need to update my resume.
Anyone have some good resources or sample resumes that I could use?

I've been at my present position for over 10 years and it's time to move on.

I've used Google to look at some, but since some of you are owners/managers and
such, what do you look for in a resume?

I have the following certifications, which should I include?
CompTIA Server+
CIW Foundations
Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Configuration
Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Configuration
Windows 7, Configuration
Connected Home Integrator
Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure, Configuration
Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician
Microsoft Windows XP
Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator
Microsoft Windows Server 2003
Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0
Microsoft Certified Professional + Internet
Microsoft Certified Professional
Cisco Instructor (Inactive)

Some of them are outdated, do I include them? (My current employer wants me to
take days off to take cert exams)
Do I include training that is several years old?
Do I include training for certifications that I hold?

I'd only include certifications that are ACTIVE. In an interview you could
always bring up the fact that you were certified since NT 4.0... but for a
resume... 99% of the time old certifications = have no impact on your employment
because they are not really competitive anymore. Additionally... I have multiple
versions of my resume tailored for the job I'm applying for.

I'd say training for certifications obtained for the past 2-3 jobs or whatever
is the most relevant. Having been on both sides of the fence... I want to see
things that make someone stand out. However, if someone puts a long list of
certifications on their resume... I ask questions starting from the most easiest
to scenarios that are particular to where I work to get a feeling for their true
troubleshooting skills.

How about beta testing for HP, Symantec, MS, and others would that be good on
a resume or for an interview?

Hopefully I can move more into a techcentric company. Where I work at just
throws technology all over the place without truly understanding the impact or
how it works.

I love working on problems, especially those that everyone has given up on.

Would the my part time business be above my current job or below?

Unless it's significantly more relevant to your objective than your day job,
put it below.

Couldn't hurt to have a side note in your job history for that. Only the
ones that make sense to your resume's objective, though.
