I don't have a current resume to post, though I can throw one together to help with this question, but resume writing has never been my strong point to begin with.
That being said, I'm looking to get back into the tech sector (specifically project management or coder/development, even as an entry level position). I have a long history of experience and work history in the industry (from 1999 - 2007 that was pretty much all I did). However I didn't have the same work ethic, or proficiency that I do now, just enough to get by. I took several years to work freelance, go back to school, and work in other industries/start a few businesses to learn more of the business side and fill in gaps in my knowledge.
I have a great skill set, even a few freelance jobs to show as examples, and the ability to create more examples, but I'm not sure how to spin this on my resume to emphasize my returning to education, experience in management in other industries, etc. to where I feel it would inspire someone to take a look at me, and when I try for simple clerical/data entry positions hoping to work up I'm told that I'm 'overqualified'.
Does anyone have any experience with this, from the hiring side or the job seeking side?
