Your last recommendation is "start from the beginning". How does that apply if you've changed carreers? I got my degree in Chemistry and worked in that field for a while. I got sick, had to take work doing whatever while I got better. Then I got into software development.
After 10 years in software, including lead and managerial roles, I'm pretty sure no one cares about my ability to do titrations or take dictations. I've got the month/year on my degree so there's a pretty clear gap that I'm always happy to talk about.
What is the benefit of including those on my resume when I have so much more relevent things to talk about?
