Focus on relevance.
A resume should tell an employer what they want to know about the candidate, not what the candidate wants to tell them. Think carefully about what's relevant for the position you're applying for, and eliminate details and duties that don’t focus on skills the potential employer seeks. Clear work-history clutter, and your relevant value will shine through.
