When you’re writing a resume, the experience section of your resume provides detailed information about your employment history. This is the real heart of your resume, and the more years you are employed, the more decisions you will have to make about what to include and what to leave off in this section. The section of your resume is where employers will look to see what jobs and job titles you’ve held in the past, and will give employers a sense of your career arc.
Writing the Experience Section
List the companies you worked for, dates of employment, the positions you held, and a bulleted list of responsibilities and achievements. Internships, summer jobs, and temporary jobs, in addition to permanent positions, can all be included in this part of your resume.
You do not have to include every job that you have held. Entry level employees, who do not have a lot of on-the-job experience, should include every job possible. (Take a look at these examples of entry level resumes for inspiration.) But once you have worked for more than 10 years, you may find that some of your earlier jobs are less relevant to your career.
