I've given this advice to colleagues, to their deep dismay. Truth is, the concern isn't only ageism: listing 30 years of experience will likely result in a resume that's over three pages long, which no one will read because no one has that kind of time or attention span.

Tl;dr, keep your resume short, deliver the knockout punch on the first page.
