Any Resume Writing Experts Here ???
I have gone over my resume a hundred times and condensed it so it isn't boring. I have a maintenance backround with electrical troubleshooting skills, AC/ DC voltage, CNC repair, hydraulics, pneumatics, welding, pipe bending and threading, machining shills to repair and fabricate parts. Complete facilities maintenance.
The past 6 yrs I have done new construction commercial electrical because that is where the demand for workers was, plus there was always overtime.
Now I want back in the maintenance field.
I have been around a while, 55yrs. so how far back do you list your employment history with out giving away your age and maybe not getting an interview. You want them to see you were always employed.
My first job I was there 10 yrs but if I put that on my resume it gives away my age.
I can e mail you my resume if you got any suggestions.
I have been out of work since Jan. of 09 but worked a couple weeks for a temp agency in sept. so it looks like I haven't been unemployed that long.
My G/F says I should only go back 10 yrs on my resume.
Thanks for any suggestions.
