Dear Experts, My husband worked at a Walmart for 4 years while he went to school for Accounting. He was 34 when he graduated and is now 38. He has had one job, at a very small firm which he still holds. His resume has his current job and the job immediately before that, which was Walmart. We think that might be part of the problem with him not being able to get another job. Is there some way he can redesign his resume to de-emphasize Walmart? Here’s a video recap of how our experts answered this question: Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#486 I would try to bring in some info on what he was doing between 20 and 30. (@gradversity) Q#486 Absolutely NOT. Any job you have creates experience and transferable skills! Walmart is all about customer service. (@DeborahShane) Q#486 Move focus toward value brought to the position & away from position/employer. Convey your value, not list job duties.
