I don't think it's personal, I just don't think (by the looks of it) that there are many (or any) people seriously looking to hire. Perhaps saying this will make me look bad, but I don't see many people around here that are serious and I think people will just click on any thread, even if they have no interest. After all, if a thread says "Sys admin looking for a job" and people click on it and no one responds to you, there's two reasons:
#1: You didn't impress people with your personality or skills.
#2: They had no real interest or were hoping to get an employee dirt cheap.
I find that it's most often #2. The resume of the person you posted for seems impressive. Perhaps not anything to blow people away, but it includes a listing of skills and experience that should be of value to many hosting companies. Still, this doesn't seem to matter around here most of the time.
If someone that's serious sees it, they might respond or contact you, but that seems rare. I posted looking for a job. I posted previously with my resume. People seemed impressed and nothing came of it. I posted again (below and before this) and didn't bother including it. I see about 165 views. The thread didn't contain any misleading title, yet no one responded (not because of an unimpressive list of skills). Above looks impressive as well. There's no reason, other than people just seem to click on anything here. I personally assume it's people just bored or they just like to see who someone is for no particular reason -- or they were hoping someone would be offering services for free web space, a pay per ticket job or some wage that no one in the US, UK, Canada, or many other places could possibly earn a living from.
I don't know why I bothered after expressing my feelings in my response to you now, since I obviously realize it's probably a waste of time. I know I posses the skills, I have dedicated many years learning and gaining experience. I've been working in this field exclusively for near 10 years now. I find this discouraging and I feel like I've wasted time even checking back here. Anyway, I know how it is, but I also would suggest you don't post "for a friend", as that might be perceived wrong. I just contacted a host and showcased my resume to them (which I easily met all their requirements), and they seemed to have lost interest as soon as I said I'd expect over $15 an hour. I guess they were looking for someone cheap or don't realize that a skilled employee that can do anything in any area of their business is worth more than $10 or $12 an hour. I don't know why I bother and this upsets me, but I can sympathize with your inquiry above due to this type of thing being so common.
I realize this is a long response to such a simple inquiry, but this is my way of saying "don't expect much". There's a few people that come here that would be able to and willing to afford (it's not THAT much) a good sys admin, support tech, programmer, etc. But most can't and I wish I knew of a better place to seek employment personally. Oh well, what can you do. Anyway, good luck (to your friend), I thought the resume was impressive and that someone would have showed some real interest. Really, the best of luck.
Your resume looks like a long list of industry protocols. While you may be well versed in all of them, you shouldn't list them out as skills. A potential employer doesn't want to see a list of protocols. List some of your skills in a paragraph about you and recap on a few of the key ones. When you post a list like that on a resume it leaves the impression you are 'reaching' to fill the page with data.
