Resume Tip #22: Try to go back with your experience as much as possible

Resume Tip #22: Try to go back with your experience as much as possible.
What you need to do:
- Find contests in which you’ve participated or relevant things you’ve achieved, that are somehow related to the position you’re applying for;
- Be sure to add any physics or mathematics competitions if you’ve recently switched to computer science;
- Start with the first relevant competition you’ve participated in and continue till present (i.e. go back with your experience as much as possible).
