Hello folks,

Need some ideas on how to fill the international experience. The section asks for "From Date' and 'To Date'. Now my trips were not continuous and staggered.
For instance, I have spent 120+ days in Thailand for a project over a 1 year period. It was over 20+ trips, with the longest continuous trip being a 2-week one.
How should I put the From and To dates in such cases? Should I put the dates for each trip separately? Or should I just put the longest 1-2 trips?

My concern is that if I put 20+ trips, it will look really long in the form and not be reader friendly, with the table having multiple rows. However, if I just put 1-2 trips, the total duration would probably be around 20 days, which is not that significant and meaty. A mid-way approach would be to put in around 5-6 trips and make the total number of days around 50 which is still significant.

Would be great to get some thoughts on how to approach this.

Nope. I'm an Indian citizen living in Malaysia for 2.5 years. So that's there.
Other than that I have two 2-week trips to South Korea, one 3 day trip to Singapore and 2 month-long trips to Saudi Arabia in addition to Thailand.

My suggestion would be to mention the start dates of your longest trip and put the end date of the trip such that total duration comes out to be the same as the length of your experience. Make sure that you explain why you did so in the section which asks for any additional clarification.

Another alternative is to enlist all the trips.
