When it comes to resume writing, there is such a thing as too much information. Hiring managers don't want to know your life story. Rather, they want to know why you are qualified for the job.
Because resumes are typically only a page or two long, your resume should contain just the information that relates to the job for which you are applying. The hiring manager should be able to skim through your resume and see your qualifications without knowing everything about you - especially if you have been in the workforce for many years.
Here's information on what not to include in your resume, plus advice on what you do need to include when writing a resume.
