I have to revamp my resume for a supervisor position I'm applying for, and purchased the resume workbook. I'm over 40, and have had a lot of jobs in my past due to my career choice and the fact I was a wacko when I was younger. I went to trade school for automotive technology, and had a very unsuccessful stint as an auto mechanic. I worked at 4 or 5 different shops. I don't remember some of the names of the shops and they are long closed. During that time I'd work 2 jobs, one time I was working 3 different jobs. All these jobs were counted in months rather than years. I think I lasted just over a year at a muffler shop, but worked in three different locations. There was a warehouse job in there somewhere, and a huge reception hall job. I was a mess. I was never out of work more than a couple weeks, but I had a lot of jobs.
I got my first real long term job in '98, when I was 22. That's typically when I start my resume. I leave off the trade school as well. Every single job I worked at from 18-22, except one, is out of business, even the tech school is closed.
I looked into getting my complete work history from the Social Security Administration, but that's a lot of money for something I may not need. Also, if they need to do a credit check, I'll need to unlock my credit. I had my ID stolen last year and everything's on lockdown.
Any advice would be appreciated!
