Not necessarily. I coach clients to include all relevant and recent job experience. Sometimes an employer may want to see every bit of experience and work history. Generally, what’s important is relevant experience and a continual timeline of work history.
If you have an extensive career or have been in the workforce for twenty years, I believe it is appropriate to leave off early work experience, or experience that is no longer relevant (such as your first job out of college). However, if you are still relatively new to the workforce (10-15 years of experience and work history) I recommend you include everything.
