Do I have to put that awful restaurant job on my resume?
I worked part time at a horrible restaurant for 8 years. It was a College and High School job. I have better experience working at a Credit Union as a Customer Service Rep. Unfortunately that contract was only 4 months and the job was replaced do to technology and downsizng. I have 5 years of working at various places but never any for so long because I've been in school and doing contracts. I learned no important skills at the this restaurant job, unlike my credit union job and many other of the short term jobs I've had over the years. My question is, do I still have to put that I worked at a restaurant PART TIME for 8 years in the SAME POSITION just to show I have "staying power"? And do I have to give up putting the 4 month contract that I have with the Credit Union because the time there was too shor The restaurant job was redundant. All I did was restock buffet items. I never got any upward mobility. My other short term jobs include working on computers and office skills.
