Need Help With Finding A Job!

Hi guys,

I need some help in finding a new job in this very 'hot' market.

Here's my resume for review.

I removed my address and phone number, obviously. If you want to check out my linkedin, it's here:

I got fired from my last gig because I, "Issued updates to servers without approval from management." My boss and I had discussed that the patching that I'd be doing would be an ongoing process done every month on the 3rd weekend of every month. He never told me what servers to not touch and I make sure nothing went bad by taking snapshots in HyperV so I could revert if something went bad. He was on vacation between 10/20 - 10/28 and I had did this on 10/22.

He didn't bring it to my attention until after he returned. I was brought into HR's office at the end of my shift at 3PM on 11/2 and was told it would be my last day because I "Had patched mission-critical servers." I didn't say a word, wasn't given anything to sign. I cleaned out my desk and was escorted out.

This is odd b/c my boss told me that I was "A diamond in the rough." He wanted me to be the face of IT and do everything for our department. I never got upset with my coworkers and fixed practically every issue without a fuss. Also, it was very rare for me to go him for help. It was mostly, "Where is this, where is that?" And then a complete 180 toward me, and then started to nitpick everything I did after the 6th month I was there.

Now, I am following the advice of my lawyer and fighting for unemployment. I've already appealed it, and based on what my coworkers have said, the HR manager and supervisor are beside themselves about me appealing it. I believe it's because they have no evidence to present to the appeal hearing and it will be my word against theirs.

Anyway, I've gotten a couple interviews and so far it's lead nowhere. I thought this would be a blessing in disguise but so far I'm feeling depressed and frustrated. Mostly, because I have nothing else to do except study. I lend my car to my mother so she can go to work and I use it when I need it. But, she's gone most of the day doing two jobs.

I've managed to get two more certs to my name; Project + and Sec +. I now have four certs in total; A +, Network +, Project +, Security +.

I though it would be easier to find a job, but it seems to me employers want someone with 5-10 years of experience in practically everything. I've been applying to Network Admin, Network Engineer, System Admin, System Engineer gigs with no luck so far in actually getting a job.

Anything you guys can do to help would be appreciated.
