That's smart!  I have a lot of jobs and years of experience, but there's a lot of overlap in terms of what I did at some of the jobs, so I may try that!!  Especially because I have some very specific experience for certain jobs, that most people wouldn't have (and I know this because in 20 years of job hunting, every single job I went for that asked for that specific experience, I got, and I don't think I'm THAT good at interviewing).

Let me know if you want me to try to dig up some templates that are skill-based.    I don't think you can get out of listing your most recent jobs.. and of course you want to list those.   But there are some really cool templates where you can separate your skills and feature what you bring to the organization.

Actually there are just a lot of really cool job templates that didn't exist a few years ago.   A friend of mine went really bold on his and picked a template with a splash of color.  It looked amazing.   LOL I'm not there yet, but I did write a resume for a friend with vertical columns and thought it looked really sharp.   (We were trying to drop the older experience off on hers too and it worked really well)

This place has some good templates. My resume looks quite nice, much nicer using one of their templates vs typing it up in Word.

I will find out soon if it works :-)

Learn a trade. Gain technical skills. Make money, then use this money to get a degree...if you have the desire. 

Keep learning.

I will start digging when I'm ready to write my resume.  Thanks for the suggestions!

No problem. I signed up for the cheap one, and cancelled it before I hit a month. I made several versions of my resume, changing things around, specific jobs and general resumes, etc. It was well worth it, my resume looks NICE.

Stick to the ones they recommended for US companies, though (if you are in the US looking for US jobs)....there is a reason they point those out.

Maybe there are others, but I loved this one, and will gladly buy another month every time I want to update my resume. Easy, nicely laid-out interface, quick, and helpful.
