I am fairly new to MT/CT, and I was blown away by the deepness and quality of resume and interviews podcasts. I want to clarify the recommendation to include previous job descriptions and responsibilities in the resume. Taking into account all other recommendations, I would not do it unless it is something unusual or extraordinary:
- It eats additional lines of the precious one-pager space.
- You can convey your job description and responsibilities through your achievements.
- A recruiter has a some idea of responsibilities for majority of jobs, based on the title.
- My actual responsibilities change very often to adhere to new quarterly and annual goals, so you need to either put a long list or come up with something vague.
Can anyone think of any strong reason, besides if it something unusual or extraordinary, to include job descriptions and responsibilities into a resume?
