I was a flight attendant for 5 years before I joined Deloitte and I am now a senior consultant. Is it worthwhile to show all my work experience on LinkedIn even when my previous experience is irrelevant?

Here I thought my move from banking to consulting was hard.. Pretty interested in hearing how you made that career move. Care to share?

On LI I’d say to keep it - but probably drop it off your resume (to stay within one page). Unrelated, how did you get from flight attendant into consulting? Was your degree technical? Have a flight attendant friend trying to transition into consulting/tech but having a hard time.

Yea, I had a degree in information systems so managed to join the Risk and Cyber team

I'd argue your previous experience is always relevant, it's part of what makes you who you are and shows interesting changes and growth in your career. I think it's okay to include those 5 years on your LinkedIn, maybe just not on your resume to save space?

I have some totally irrelevant but interesting experience listed on both my resume and LinkedIn- it’s always a conversations starter with both recruiters and hiring managers.

Thanks!

So hard to say what is your current chronological timeline. How long have you been at Deloitte? Rule of thumb is go back 10 years on resume.

I would 100% keep the FA experience :)

Hi there previous FA here gave up the seniority also! Definitely keep it the experience on your linked in. You never know what may be helpful in the future. Tailor your resume to your most recent experience and keep your older experience in your back pocket.
