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!

Yes! Even if you don’t see a direct relation between your internship and the position you are applying for definitely include the experience on your resume. The skills you were able to develop, or strengthen, during the time in your internship are likely transferable to the new position. Also having different experiences than other candidates is a great way to help you stand out!
