Should I list all of my internship experience even if it is not directly related to the position for which I am applying?

Hello!
I think it's valuable to list all of your work history (up to 10 years). Any internships will show that you are willing to work and take on tasks and learn new skillsets outside of your direct function. It also shows your drive and ambition to work. Thanks!

Absolutely! Internships can provide valuable skills (communication, leadership, teamwork, etc.) that are relevant to any job. A hiring manager or recruiter reviewing your resume will likely look positively on your work ethic and experience. Good luck!
