I am job hunting now after having worked for seven years at the same company. I am now looking for new work, following a lay-off, and I'm having some trouble figuring out how to position myself in my resume and cover letters.
The problem is that I've been promoted many times, but have never given up old responsibilities as I've taken on new ones. (Although I have passed some on to directs, they remained my problem) As a result, my resume looks more technical than I'd like it to, less managerial (layoffs and firings left me with one direct when I left), and less focused.
I have considered only listing accomplishments relevant to the positions I'm seeking, but that ends up leaving out some very impressive achievements.
I'm wondering what tips and experience the other members of this community have had in this regard. Does it count against me to be a versatile manager who is capable of juggling many (often unrelated) responsibilities? Is it useful to include major accomplishments even if they fall outside of the field you're applying into?
Thanks for any tips.
