lets just say i took a long time to "find myself". i am in my mid thirties and have worked in multiple industries (tech, hospitality, fashion, entertainment). prior to going back to school for nursing, i worked as a therapeutic massage therapist for a year after completing a 2 year college program. prior to that, i goofed off in the uk for a year with nothing good to put on my resume (i worked as a coat check girl in a high end celeb nightclub while going to astrology school - something that i am leaving off my resume because i know people look at any kind of occult knowledge with judgement and suspicion). i was a self employed makeup artist/server for 3 years before that. prior to THAT (this is now going back 15 years) i worked in the tech industry as an executive assistant/office manager, and also ran my own management agency for artists for two years. that was 15 years ago though.
so i'm kind of at a loss. as i mentioned, i'm in my mid thirties, but i look like im in my early/mid twenties, and everyone assumes so and treats me accordingly, until i casually slip in my age. i actually have a huge base of knowledge and experience/skills spanning from computers/technology to administration to sales to dealing with all kind of people of all walks of life, but i'm not sure how to frame this on my resume without looking like a total kook who just jumped around (which i am, and i did).
i dont want to submit a resume that only covers the past 3 years (nursing school and massage), because potential employers will assume that i'm in my early twenties, but going back 15 years doesnt make sense either.
i'm not sure how to approach this?
