I am applying for a teachers aid position, I was told I should by a current teachers aid, I currently am work for a student transport company and transport Special Needs students. I have been working for this company for only a 1 1/2 years however 10 years ago I worked for another Bus company for 8 years again working with special needs children (short bus) as well as working with children with special needs as a volunteer for vacation bible school.
My problem is 10 years ago I left the Bus company to get my BS in Interior Design. The last 10 years I have held various jobs that were basically Sales jobs or administrative potions many of the store were hit hard by the economic crunch and I either closed or down sized their staff and I ended up working for 5 different companies in 10 years the last before my current job.
The owner had a heart attack and I was out of work again so I went back to busing kids again I really enjoy the job (much better then being a sales person). I am now applying for a government job (teacher aid) and need to know if I need to list all the irrelevant jobs I had or can I just jump back 10 years to when I worked with children with disabilities for 8 years?
How would I outline my resume? I will be listing all job history on my application but want to streamline my resume.
