I'm trying to put together an application for a part-time job. I've been out of the salaried workforce for 6 years and this job is in a field I haven't worked in for over 30 years. I'm confident that I'd do the job well (not that it's particularly difficult) and that I'd enjoy it, but I'm having a diabolical time with the resume and application.
Has anyone here dealt with applications from career changers or people returning to the workforce - not that I'm either of those things, but those seem to be the closest to "wouldn't mind doing that for a couple of days a week if the people are ok." What do you think of non-chronological resumes? How do you judge how much people are leaving out? What catches your attention about a resume - without turning you off?
And has anyone in a similar position to mine managed to write a resume that got them a job? Any tips, and especially any comment on the resume websites and their recommendations to put your job or career objective up front?
