    The resume looks great, although I think you should invest in another set of handcuffs, and a few more Glock magazines, you don't have to buy the expensive factory mags, go for the after market ones, way more bang for the buck if you know what I mean! Also, the Glock you have will handle +P+ ammo, you don't want to starve the thing with those weak +P rounds!

      Here is some constructive feedback. That resume is WAY too long. It needs to be cut by about 3/4ths. You have a ton of fluff in there that really does not need to be in a resume. It also has spelling errors and grammar issues.

      Are you applying for a computer job or a security job? If you are applying for a security job, concentrate on just the stuff that is relevant to the position you are applying for.

        Cut all that equipment stuff out. If you feel so inclined you can mention that you have all the necessary equipment to be an armed guard, but that grocery list will end up being a turn off to a lot of potential employers.

          I would also leave out the MMA portion. And my comment earlier was my way of telling you to get ride of your equipment list, it gives potential employers a bad vibe.

            I made a revised copy of your resume. Here it is. I cleaned up the spelling errors and got rid of a ton of fluff. I think this will serve you better. Keep in mind that I do hire security officers for a multi billion dollar company, so I would like to think I have some knowledge is reading resumes. Mpls and Lawson, your thoughts on the revisions?

              Personally, I am not a fan of, "to get a job that uses my skills" objectives. I try to make objectives at least 2 sentences which state both a short and long term goal.

                CorpSec has a very good point, John. I would recommend creating separate resumes for

                your security experience and your computer-related experience. If either resume comes

                up a bit short, take a few training courses to lengthen both resumes.

                  Re

                  If I may,


                  I also keep two different types of resumes for the security industry. One is for unarmed and one is for armed.

                  I don't know if anyone would agree with this or not, but I also have another type of generic resume with an objective such as this

                  Seeking a position as an armed or unarmed security officer

                  You don't want them to think you're gun whole and want armed only cause then they may be reluctant to hire you thinking you might be extreme. Most companies also usually have both positions available and by doing this it leaves you open to either position.

                  As you may already know, the funny thing about the security industry is sometimes the unarmed pays more and you do less it seems.

                  My last job, all I did was drive around the city all night hitting check points. It paid $11 an hour and was unarmed. Of course someone underbid the contract for that. It was a small mom and pop firm that had the contract. (Looks at CorpSec) Errrr…..

                  The job I have now is armed and pays a lot less.

                  CorpSec cut out a lot of the tactical training. I could be wrong about this statement, but I would imagine the main reason for it, even if you have had it, is because 90 per cent of security firms don’t offer the training and as such when people list it on their resumes, they’re lying and employers know it. So unless you have been to an accredited law enforcement academy, such as a reserve academy or something similar and can prove it with a badge number, degree, transcripts, etc, etc, I wouldn’t list it.

                        Just out of curiosity, is that another way of saying handgun registration card? I only ask because way back when I was in that area, even though I lived in the suburbs, because I sometimes worked in the city, I had to have any handguns I might use on the job registered in Chicago.
