Many people want to list all their jobs on their résumé. That’s simply not effective. That approach is appropriate for an entry-level candidate. For executives, only what’s relevant to the job you’re applying for is necessary. Sure, you want to display your impressive experience, but you also don’t want to date yourself or distract from the aspects of your experience that are vital for your desired role. If there is impactful experience that you really want to include, there are ways to group previous career highlights on a résumé, but it’s got to be in a targeted, concise manner.
