Would really appreciate some feedback on my resume. I am a new grad looking for my first job and would like to apply to one that I've found and love. I've looked all over the internet and even in this forum on different layouts, templates, what is needed and not needed. It varies so much. I feel like my Summary may be too long and I'm not even sure if this layout is ok. Because this is a career change and I didn't want my resume to be too long I didn't write anything under previous job experience since it wasn't health related. Most of it is IT related. Please help.
