How to state old work history that is relevant to industry on resume?
I am seeking a position in an industry that I worked in 17 years ago. While I know that industry has changed, the human resources department of this organization has told me my experience is outdated when I applied there for other positions.
However, I recently was one of the final candidates for a position in this industry at another company and the only reason I didn't get it was my experience wasn't as recent as the person who did get the position, but listing the experience on my resume got me the interview.
In this next position I am seeking, do I just not put any of the history of this industry on my resume or if so, should it just put it in the skill section stating I have eight years experience in the industry and not elaborate? And focus more upon my recent skills which I've targeted specifically to the job description?
