Tony Chung said, "...they taught me to date my experience with the year only, and a prospective employer got mad at me for it.
I have a two-page resume summarizing my work history (in a small font) with only a year or year range for eqch position. When recruiters or potential employers request more information, I submit a one-page detailed Work & Salary History, with actual employment dates, employer (and agency, if appropriate) names, addresses, contact information, and salary data. If I'm requested to fill out one of those applications where they give you half an inch or one line for each prior employer, I use a copy of my work & salary history page, and write, "see attached".
