Somebody (sorry.. I was a little quick on the "D" key... :( ) pointed
out that a person at their company had listed every job they had ever
had, and thought that this was too much. I agree. I had a major career
switch about 6y ago; and while a lot of the *skills* I learned there
are still valid, the field was so different that most people in TW
don't know what to make of them. So... what I do in my "Employment
History" section, is say

"Prior to 1989 - Details on request".

I still list the skills that are transferable in a "Skills" section...
people management is still people management, whether it is a
100-person construction crew or a 5-person doc group. (Yes, there
*are* differences, but a matter of degree, not kind.)

Given the discussion here on hobbies and such, I'm giving serious
consideration to doing the same for my hobbies (and possibly awards).
