May 25, 2007, Newsletter Issue #85: Old Jobs in Resumes

Tip of the Week

Old jobs can be listed in your job history as long as they bear relevance to your current career track. Otherwise, you would be wasting valuable space and distracting the employer.

You should only include irrelevant jobs if their omission would create a large gap in your work history. However, your accomplishment descriptions should be brief, and you should be prepared to explain why you shifted from your career track.
