Should I list all my past employment on a resume?

Honesty is the Best Résumé Policy

A prospective employer can —and more than likely will— verify your past employment with a background check or pre-employment screening. So, be honest. Never lie about your work history or educational background. It could keep you from getting a job or could be grounds for your immediate dismissal after a job is secured.
