I know that it is recommended that you show at least 10 years of experience on your resume. For the last 6 years I have worked in the oil and gas industry. Fourteen years before that I worked in the commercial real estate industry. Do I really need to include the 14 years in real estate? I don't want to because it shows that I maybe older than my competition and employers may think I'm expensive. I do not have on my resume or my LinkedIn profile when I graduated college which was in the early 80s. It isn't easy finding a job when you are in your 50s.
