What should I do with older experience on my resume? By Matthew Coppola


As your career progresses, you will most likely find that some of your experience is past ten years, and although it is valuable and vital to how you have developed as a professional, you may feel that it was quite a long time ago. You may feel you need to condense your resume, but if you take it out, then they may not consider you as someone who has extensive industry experience.

So what do you do?

An excellent option to deal with this situation is to summarise your experience in a table format. Include only a summary about your role, any key accomplishments (Maybe three or four) as well as the employer’s name, role title and duration.
