I'm a software developer who has worked professionally for 2.5 years (5 years total experience). During my senior year of high school and a while after, I was programming for a company as an intern (later full time). Before that, I worked retail as a junior and at an apple orchard as a sophomore.
Are the two career-unrelated jobs necessarily going to look bad on a resume if I'm applying for a software development position? It seems like they are worth putting on because it shows I've taken on responsibility even though they were brief (10 months each) and unrelated. Combined with everything else on the resume, it fills a single page nicely.
Note: I did not go to college and have no plans to, but this question is still relevant as is for someone in college. The only difference would be having a pending college education listed.
