Hey guys, I'm working on my resume right now. What do you think about listing my experience from my current base according to the AXP guidelines: EXPERIENCE AREAS & TASKS? 

There has been so much I have done that it is difficult to narrow it down.

What does this even mean? 

Care to post an example of how you'd be doing that?

Are these thing you currently do or the categories of experience in the AXP? If it's the latter how would you provide a 'rating' of how good you are at each?

Jan 26, 23 6:22 pm  · 

Hm... I'm not sure how I'll rate these, I've done all of them 4-6 times or more throughout my 4 years of experience...

You've managed projects? Or did you assist? 

 You've managed CA or did you assist?

To put it another way - in the things you did where you the one others in your firm came to for how to answer an RFI or design a facade?  

Make sure you're honest about your abilities and experience.

This isn't an insult or me saying you're being dishonest.  It's just that it's rare for someone to have done all of those things in four years, especially managing and leading projects.  

Jan 26, 23 6:45 pm  · 

No problem, I understand. In that case, assist it is.. honestly, I got pretty independent work on all those stages and got my principal architect to back me up if I need help. It is a small l firm.

It is not my intention to be dishonest, but I would like to not downgrade my experience.

All of those stages still left me with a lot to learn, I made tons of dumb mistakes, and it was embarrassing. lol 

I just was not sure what the right word to use

It is not like my boss tells me something and I do exactly what he says.

Jan 26, 23 7:08 pm  · 

I would say that you assisted some things and lead others. Be very specific what you lead.

Don't spend a ton of space in your resume telling people things they don't care about. At most give a short paragraph explaining what you did at a company. I don't get the impression that you have enough experience that I'd really take you at your word on it anyway. 

Jan 27, 23 12:08 pm  · 

It's what I fear, I got exposed to these and did them with my supervisor's guidance, of course. But mostly on my own. But I'm still learning... Not sure what the right term is without sounding dishonest. My goal isn't to be a project manager or job capt

, just an architectural designer (intermediate).
