I may need to change jobs if spouse gets a job in another state.  Worked at same company 12 years as IT/network (do it all, wear lots of hats-type of person). Years ago I went to a Cisco Academy and my BS is in networking/internetworking. My issue, is that I don't know if I should put these CCNP/WAN types of protocols on my resume like EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, QoS. I've done them in labs and tests but do not need them for every day work since our network is smaller with about 200 network nodes.

So, do I put these protocols on my resume? I know I could pick it back up again if I needed to, but I'm concerned because I don't want to misrepresent myself but am having a bit of difficultly placing myself in the current job market. Jack of all and a master of none I sometimes feel but have supported a very good, forward moving network for all of these years. What should I do? Your advice is appreciated very much.
