The process was relatively informal: phone interview and in-person interview. The manager just called me for the offer but d...

non-relevant long-term job experience in resume?

Steve-Trends

I was wondering if anyone here thinks that putting a 9 yr old career in my resume is a no no for any application.

Not sure what to do, don't w...
