I have so many different experiences. Which ones are relevant?
“In your guide-book, you mention that we must include ONLY the relevant work experience for each application. Yet there are areas that are so inter-related that it is hard to say whether it is relevant or not.
“Example: I have experience as a research assistant at university, internships at NGOs, the European Parliament and at a UNESCO institute. So, when I apply for a job at an NGO, should I scrap my experience in academic research? Or when I apply for an international organisation, should I scrap my experience as a freelance foreign trade consultant?
“In the international arena there are so many inter-related fields (education, development, trade)… I would hate to scrap some of my working experience knowing that it could eventually be considered as useful by the person reading my CV.”
