The most important thing that you have to think about when you're applying for a job is that the company you're applying to have to really believe that they cannot do without you and that you should be employed in order to make that company a lot better. You need to make yourself seem like an attractive candidate, so you don't have to list everything that you have ever achieved, but just think about which parts of your experience are relevant to the job that you're applying to, and talk about those in your application.
