This is another Just-Ask-Chris minisode where I try and answer a commonly asked job seeker question in under 10 minutes! Today, we discuss what experience you should remove from your resume.


Core concepts in the podcast episode:

  • The resume as a marketing piece vs. the all encompassing document.
  • Look to the job postings! This is golden rule #1 because you'll have no direction whatsoever.
  • Why you should cut out fluff and where to start looking.
  • Your summary probably sucks.
  • Favor accomplishments over experiences. It's okay to talk about descriptions but do be specific and not vague. Show context.
  • Start looking at older experiences with suspicion...if you're going to include stuff, keep it super short (AND MAKE SURE IT'S relevant in the first place).
