No sweat. If I ever pass through Tulare on my way to Sequoia National Park again I'll pick up the beer.

I would over see the other techs and train them to implement my installation techniques therefore adding to the workload in a day and being able to save on material. And although I was a technician we were also able to do sales if we brought the customer in. I saw this as an opportunity and would bring in whole apartment complexes into it and every tenant would go through me for the signing up of the service therefor profiting the company I worked for. I know not many my age are like this, but I had a great opportuinity and I worked hard for it.
This is exactly what people look for! Why are you explaining to the internet who isn't hiring you? Why isn't this in the resume? Word it differently, make it two different bullet points, and add it.

As for making two different jobs out of Dish Networks, I would say do it. Contrary to what unemployed people on the internet think, employers want to see progression; they want to know you're ambitious and are going to work hard, which getting promoted within a year shows.

Systems ....might want to call it OS or Operating Systems.


Also...what did you do on those systems...a user or admin? If only as a user, just remove the line completely.

BTW, you need to add Unix to the mix as soon as possible.

Usually IT folks don't bother putting MS Office "user skills" on their resume. The only time an IT person mentions MS office is when they did something on the IT side for it - something on the network or admin side mainly. If your MS Office skills are only as a user, remove it. Same with Norton software.

--------In the descritpion of what you did....throw some of the technical terms in there. What did you do on VPN. What was your role in Network Admin? I don't see it in the written out sentences, which should be littered with acronyms and software/tools/technical terms(IT resumes are different than other resumes. You need to spell out your hands on experience with the technology.)

What was the performance software tool that you monitored? there should be a name or acronym for it.

What would be the best way for me to split the job up and add this to it??

OK cool I see what your saying. The MS office side it was just a user and Norton software it was on the admin side. But thee only reason I have ms office is because on some of the jobs I'm applying for it states that you must know how to use ms office and I don't want them to just figure I know how to use it.

It's fine, particularly for someone with 2-3 years expensive. The real question is - who are you putting it in front of?
