Tyrone, thanks a lot for you prompt response and your help in resolving the problem with my laptop. Because of this sudden laptop problem I was in a situation when i could not start working on a important project of national scale on scheduled time and many people involved in this project would be affected. However, because of your help I was able to transfer all data to another laptop to start the project as scheduled.

This is a 4 million dollar project and touches 250 different applications. The project wold have been thrown totally of course if not for his great work.

How to write your own Sr. Technical Support Specialist resume?

1. Choose a readable font

Remember, your resume is not the best place to experiment. What's more, it can be as good as you want but it doesn't matter if the hiring managers can't read it. That's the main reason why picking the right font is important, although it may sound trivial. Try to stick to professional and well-established fonts, such as Calibri, Times New Roman, Georgia, Arial, etc. and they will do a lot for your resume. On the other hand, avoid fonts that look childish or are very hard to read, for example, Bradel Hand ITC, Vivaldi, and Kristen ITC.

2. Divide your skills into subsections

For this and some other IT-related positions, the skills section is actually one of the most important parts of a resume. It's usually one of the first things the recruiters will look at when they are looking for a person with certain abilities or knowledge of specific software. That's why making it as good as you can is essential. So how to create a perfect skills section? First of all, stay relevant and only include skills which you feel are important. Secondly, divide them into small subsections based on the type of skills. Finally, support the skills with specific examples in other parts of your resume.

Senior Technical Support Specialist Skills Example

  • "Microsoft OS - Windows 7, Windows 10"

  • "Microsoft Office - Office 2013/16, Office 365, Skype for Business"

  • "WAN / LAN - TCP/IP, 802.11, VLAN'sSubneting"

  • "Hardware - Desktops / Laptops, Cisco Routers / Switches"

3. Include important certifications

Your resume should create a complex image of you as a potential employee so you should not only focus on a few parts of it and leave others behind. The smaller sections can actually significantly boost your chances of getting hired, you just need to know what to mention and how to mention it. For instance, in the case of certificates, things that are directly related to the position you are applying for are a big plus and ought to be definitely included. After putting all relevant certificates and licenses together, place this section right after the education or skills part. The certificates section of a resume above provides a great example of how to do it.

Senior Technical Support Specialist Certificates Example

  • "Cisco CCNA (200-120) Online Course / Udemy (9/2015)"

  • "Computer Networks Certificate / Coursera (04/2013)"

  • "Administering Cisco Unified Communications / Global Knowledge (05/2016)"
