One Job for last 20 years

  1. Help! I need resume tips. Little back ground. I have worked part time for the last 15 years (a few days a month, sometimes more)
    I've been at on facility for about 20 years. Started as a CNA while getting my BSN, then moved to staff nurse, supervisor, assessment coordinator, acting DON, then back to weekend supervisor/ staff nurse.

    I've worked at a few other places along the way, but I can't even remember the dates. The last PRN gig I did was about 10 years ago (I only remember close dates because I was pregnant)
    All this experience has been in LTC/ skilled care.

    Questions? Do I try to dig up dates for these other jobs? Any other advice? Sad to say but for the other jobs, I just filled out an application since I knew people hiring.

    Most places only expect the last 10 years of employment. If you've been the same place for the last 20, I wouldn't think the few PRN gigs you did would be worth going crazy over trying to get the info if you were 10 or so years ago.

    I would omit the other jobs if they fall beyond the ten year look back period. The bulk of your experience and reference is from the 20 year job anyway, so the others are tangental. Now, if you couldn't remember a part time job from last year, that is a different story.
