I don't think this is really an etiquette question, so I put it here instead.
I'm in the process of applying to be on a committee in the field I work in. Basically, my work is governed by a set of standards, which are put together by a certain type of committee. I am applying to be on this committee for certain portions of the standard. This is not a job application- it's something on the side that would definitely be supported by my company.
I do have a college degree- but it as absolutely nothing to do with what I do now. Do I still include it on the resume? It would be like applying to be a bus driver, and having a degree to be a librarian- completely unrelated.
I have a ton of working experience, but no real "accomplishments"- no awards, honors, patents, etc. The experience that I have is mostly self-learned, with input with some people in the industry. However, I have remarkable retention- one of the committee members called me a "walking encyclopedia". So my experience is knowledge, plus a lot of hands on experience. I'm just not sure how to word that.
Can anyone help?
