Looking for feedback, I'm updating my resume and I'm wondering at what point should I start removing past work experience. I've heard anything older than 10 years should go?

I recently updated mine through a professional resume writer. They cut it off at 15, but, they listed my previous roles in a bulleted summary below the detailed description above as “Additional Experience as” • Division Vice President, [Company Name], [Location], etc.
I really liked that because I had some really important experience earlier than 10 years ago that I didn’t want to leave out if for no other reason for the algorithm sake. Food for thought.

It really depends. How many jobs have you had in the 10 years? If you’ve had 8, then that’s too many jobs. People will look at time frame and number of jobs. So that said, if you have had a large number of jobs in a specific time frame, shorten the list, expand in the ones left really well. The key is to sell yourself on 2 pages or less with the most important stuff first. (Human brain pays the most attention in the beginning and will start to slowly loose interest and attention the further it goes)

Hope this helps

Hi everyone !

I am trying to relocate in London, as a Legal Counsel in Privacy.

The opportunities there seems more interesting in terms of missions and financially. I had interviews for companies but one obstacle keeps coming up: I am not a qualified lawyer because is it not necessary to be one when you’re an in house in France.

I do have 2,5 years of experience as a Legal Counsel in Privacy and strong referrals.

Do you maybe have any tips to help me :) ?

Many thanks!
