CVs and resumes should not only highlight top strengths and skills, but should also highlight RECENT activity in your work history. A rule of thumb is to hone in on the last 10-15 years of experience highlighting ONLY accomplishments and value-added in your roles and eliminate everything else as it would just be "filler."

I hope this helps!
