    Hmmm... so how does your resume read?
    Does it read something like "Former Manager with 10+ years of EXP Now looking for entry network positions?".

    I dont know anything about your situation (obviously), but if you are trying to land an entry-level network gig... your resume needs to play the part.
    Keep it around 2-pages;
    don't include All your jobs;
    don't include unrelated skills;
    don't include the year that you got your degree, etc

    You want your resume to Sound like someone in their mid 20's.
    (maybe slap the CCNA logo at top of the first page)

    Creating a narrowed resume should at least get you some phonecalls...

    Yes. I have customers that have their own AS transfer running BGP as an MPLS, pharmacies that are nationwide using RIPv2 to share routes. Others I see very heavy distribution, even if I for some reason don't get certified the experience is invaluable.

    Volfkhat,

    Thanks for the suggestions. I might try that. It will certainly define whether my previous roles are holding me back.
