If you're uncomfortable with the number of positions
that show on your resume, switch to a functional rather
than chronological format. Then prospective employers
will never be able to tell how long you've held any of
your jobs.

Every time I've tried a functional resume, the hiring managers look at it funny, like it was a foreign language, and ask me how long I spent where. But it's been a while. Maybe I should try again.

I'm sure not having much luck this year finding ANY writing jobs in my area.
