How far back should you list your professional experience?

by Janice Giffin
(Milan Italy)

I am in the process of updating and rewriting my cv. My professional experience goes back over 36 years in my field (English teaching and training), however I have added new skills (editing, translation,teacher training) that I would like to highlight. I don't want my CV to be more than two pages. Thanks
