My resume not pretty enough? I'm 23, with 9 years of IT helpdesk and more advanced support experience. Is my resume not cutting it, or does it send out a red flag that i didnt post my education? I left high school in 11th grade to make money, and was doing great until about a year ago when I was laid off. I was pulling in like 50k contracting and doing temp jobs, and now I want to settle and find a cheap 35-40k position. I'll be doing school once I start working and can afford it, but nobody will hire me now. Is there anything I should modify if I want to stay in IT? I have been applying for areas outside my work, with a dumbed down resume, but even then I get little to no backs, and no offers. Thanks in advance anyone who can help!

Your resume while informative from first glance is cluttered. You need to condense items. Also your Letter of introduction should include the information you have in your 1st paragraph (not necessary on a resume. Your resume is to include your skills, colleges, schools with degrees obtained and year. Employment-name of employer and year. Do not list each function performed. Everthing should pertain to the position you are applying for. I would suggest tweaking to fit accordingly. ALWAYS HAVE SPELLCHECKED AND PROOFREAD! Be specific. You get your foot in the door. Then once you have your interview you can elaborate and shine.

Will lean it out some! It looks a lot better formatted on paper, usually I send it pdf. I will trim it down though, for skimming ease. I do write a good cover letter, and it does touch key aspects that I've dealt and been exposed to. Thanks sir, or Ms!

    IT Help desk is still good There are a lot of people who do that type of work though. You could try center work / telemarketing if you have done phone support.

    I hear ya I know what you mean, with the flooded job market and all. I do stand out among the rest though, having done consulting primarily, a luxury most employers won't succumb to now. Call centers have told me flat out I'm a flight risk, even though I have expressed to them how much I want a full time perm position. I have tried cutting back on salary reqs, dumbing the resume down more, or applying for low low paying jobs. Zilch. Curses!

    If a recruiter contacts you it is still probably worth connecting with them. You never know where your next job will come from and there is nothing wrong with continuing to consult through this rough economy.

    At least they notified you 75% of employers still don't send any correspondence to an applicant regarding their status, let alone if their application was received.

    It's true I was working on campus, and got hired by the school district as part-time during weekends/summer. I have references to all my positions and state so on my cover letter.
