I need resume help.

Is it better to have a section entitled 'Work experience' and include all jobs in chronological order without gaps, or to entitle it 'related experience' and have spaces of time unaccounted for? I wrote an objective that is specific to the job for which I am applying, so I'm thinking related experience may be fine, but what about the blocks of time that are missing? Which do you think looks better. This is my first time applying for a job online, so I want it to be right. Thanks.

i do two sections - Relevant Work Experience and Additional Work Experience Employers like to know you've kept jobs...i went to a temp agency once & the recruiter told me to put my waitressing jobs on my resume...it shows i had a job, could multi task, good with ppl, etc. - there are a lot of experiences that can show you have the skills needed for any kind of work
