My LinkedIn goes back 10yrs, but have agency experience 15+ ago I want to include. Now just looks like i’m @ my first agency, not that I came up in one. Anyone been here? It’s the age vs. (cont.)

Why wouldn't you make sure your LinkedIn is accurate?


You can use the summary section to encapsulate your career and include the early jobs the only list the most recent. (But I would never tell someone to delete jobs if over ten years. )


experience conundrum, take 7,022. Sigh.

You have the ability to reflect this in your experience details. I don’t think your dilemma is as bad as you think it is.

I’m so confused

If you breakout your experience for each title milestone it will translate as coming up in one agency. In other words don’t list ACD at X agency for 15 years. Start with your first title and and list your responsibilities in detail. Do this for each promotion. This will reflect experience and growth over time. Also, list any freelance, if possible. This will help with breadth.

Huge 1: I was told by recruiters a while back try resume and linkedin should stop at 10yrs. Maybe i’m the only one tho?

Sorry Strat 1: my post was a bit cryptic. A few recruiters have told me not to go back more
than 10yrs on linkedin/resume - so i’ve done that but now that i’m looking again i’m concerned i’ve cut off too much. Maybe i’m the only one who got this advice tho. Linkedin is accurate tho abbreviated.

I’ve never heard that before. I’m fourteen years into my career...

Thanks @AD1, like the idea of packaging it to experience.
And SD - glad to know it hasn’t been an issue for you.

Looking for feedback: I started a new role as an EA with my same company in Nov 2021 as result of a reorg and the new leader opting to bring their current admin with them. I could have stayed in this org and let them place me with another leader but that would have been a demotion since my leader was the head of that BU before the reorg, so I put my resume out in the company and was selected for the role I’m in now. Now one of the leaders from my old org has (overflow in comments)

Quick question to H1B or greencard holders. Currently I’m getting sponsored by my company. However my supervisor keep asking me to share all my personal documents with him. He is blocking the connection between me and HR, and he told me not to contact HR directly. If HR request any doc, he gets the request and deliver to me. When I need to submit my doc to HR, he brings my doc to HR. Is this normal procedure?? He is so sketchy. He even checks employee’s home address on google road maps..
