I just wanted to stop by and throw a question at my readers and get your feedback on it before I left for work. I had a meeting yesterday and somewhere during the conversation, my supervisor said the project we’re working on would look great on our resumes. This got me to thinking about all of the things I’ve done while I’ve been with the city of Marietta.
The question I have for you guys is how often should I update the experience section of my resume? I haven’t updated my resume in years and my experience goes back to when I was a writer on my high school and college newspaper staffs, five to 10 years ago. Should I delete this and just focus on my experience with the city, or keep it in?
Also, how much of my experience should I put? I don’t really want to put every, single minor thing I’ve done, but want to focus on the highlights and major projects I’ve worked on.
I’ve always heard a resume should typically be one page and no more. I know my experience would take up a page and a half easy, if I put everything from high school, college and work. Where should I draw that line?
