How do you know if your resume is outdated?
Does your previous experience exceed the last 7-10 years? If so, and if your resume is a Chronological Resume, you may want to change that.
Resumes that have experiences dating back beyond the 7-10 year timeline often distract a recruiter or hiring manager and do not effectively Prove Your Worth in those crucial few seconds that the reader has to decide if you are worthy of the position.
Any experiences listed beyond the 7-10 year mark are most often excluded.
First decide if your previous experience is relevant to the position that you are applying to.
Decide if you need a chronological or functional resume. A functional resume will tell your future employer if you have the skills required for the position without giving specific dates.
Don't worry! As much as a recruiter or hiring manager would like to see a chronological resume from you, they will find more value in a functional resume if your qualifications are specific to the position being offered.
