Hi, I'm virtual. Should I list a job location on my resume? If so, my home city or the employer's location?

Example 1: In a prior position, I managed a Business Unit and all directs in Atlanta, GA but I resided in Chicago, IL. I'd spend two weeks a month in Atlanta and the other weeks in my virtual home office. 

Example 2: In my present position, I live & work virtually in Columbus, OH for 3 weeks a month and 1 week a month I'm in San Francisco at my employer's location (at least I was pre-Covid).

Thank you.

For me putting job location is not necessary anymore.

Which suggests you'd list that as "Atlanta GA / Chicago IL" and "Columbus OH / San Francisco CA".

For my remote-only contracts, I cite "remote (Atlanta GA)".

ZITTER & jrb3. Thank you for taking time to give your opinion. I'll try no location to give space for description and accomplishments.

If the job you are applying for would require you to work remotely, I would make a point of indicating you have experience doing so. Otherwise, not relevant and use the space to better purpose.

I agree with vwelch. You can do something else with that space to impress.

I agree with you sir. It is wise to place something that is material to the position you are applying.

Location for remote work experiences is not necessary to list. Just indicate that it is remote or virtual.
