I'm working on my resume because I really need to get a job but I haven't done one since highschool so I have no idea what to do with the work experience I have on it. In 2002 I worked in an insurance office, in 2003 I worked at wal-mart and in 2004 I worked at zellers. Should I leave the insurance on because it's work experience or should I take it off because it was so long ago and because the other 2 I have on there are department stores?
Any help is much appreciated.

Depends on what job you are going for what you want to leave off if any. One thing you do not want to show is that you've had lots of jobs. Lots of jobs = experience, but it also shows someone that can't hold a job, or isnt reliable, kwim? I pick and choose myself, I"ve been horrible with keeping jobs, I've quit so many before I found this one that I've kept.
Dont have it to word-y either, you want it to stand out, but not have a potential employer have to sit there and read, much easier to be scan-able imo. Short and to the point
Dont mix up to many fonts and bolds, keep it nice to look at. I love different fonts myself so thats hard for me.
I cant think of anything else, its been so long since I made one.
I would leave it on as it shows that you have office experience as well as retail. Remember to focus on your accomplishments rather than your responsibilities (eg. increased sales in dept by 20% over the previous quarter). Also, depending on where you live, register with a staffing company or two. Let them market your abilities to their clients. even temporary work often leads to permanent work (trust me, it's what I do).
