Resume : Tips For Developing The Summary : 

1. Focus on functional strengths first, such as years of experience, areas of expertise, knowledge of key technologies, knowledge of processes or methodologies, or any other items that are DIRECTLY related to your experience or training. Then if you have the room, you can add statements that reflect personal strengths such as skills regarding communication, leadership, troubleshooting, etc. If possible, you can use these personal strengths in a combination with strong statements of functional expertise.

Over 15 years in technical support with proven ability to rapidly troubleshoot, diagnose, and resolve complex technical issues.
