Default Could this section on my resume be hurting me

I'm flying for a regional, and been applying and applying, but not even a "thanks for submitting your resume." I understand they're probably calling more qualified candidates than myself, I don't blame them, but reading about F/Os getting hired on at Atlas and others is making me question my resume. I'm wondering if these 2 sections from my resume is the reason of why I'm getting the cold shoulder from companies. I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong, if something is missing or has the information listed incorrectly. The PIC time I listed is from my piston Part 91 days, and I'm sure that 121 companies don't care about my Flight Instructor ratings. I've stopped putting time under actual and night time. My hours are also lined up visually instead of looking the way they do here. Thanks for any replies.

Hours dude, you don't have enough of them. Keep logging everything, and don't stop logging night or actual. From the cheap seats over here you're still a rookie in that regard, no offense.

Never stop networking. Job fairs, air shows, friends of friends, whatever.

Most regional folks I've seen are getting picked up with 6k+ unless they know someone. My crashpad new hire roommates are all over 8k. Keep working hard and your number will get called. It's just begun.

I kept my resume simple. I only listed TT, Turbine, and my only PIC time which is all Part 91. They can look at my logbook or ask me for additional information. I also wrote my aeronautical ratings just like it appears on my license writing it from left to right instead of listing it.

I recon it worked because I got hired by my current regional and now its parent mainline using the same format.

Everybody cares about instructor ratinsg, it's another check in the box that some people don't have.

But overall your total time is low, your PIC is low, and your ME and turbine time are low for a non-fighter pilot.

I think most of the FO's getting called are 6000 hours types, with 4500 turbine.

Thanks guys, I figured that my total time is the issue, I'll stick where I'm at and keep what I have on my resume. Wasn't sure if I had something on there that I shouldn't.
