There is a difference between placing inaccurate info on a resume and omitting irrelevant info on a resume. I changed career fields a few years ago once I received my masters degree. Prior to this, I worked a high paying clerical position. I don't feel the need to put that clerical experience on my resume when it is irrelevant to the job at hand. I will place it on the job application because often times a complete employment history is requested.

I have a section entitled "Relevant Education" on my resume, and I omit a degree that isn't relevant to the job. I do include it when I fill out an application, though.

In a bad economy? The same way they'd view any undermployment. As a job in a bad economy.

Don't need it for that purpose. My MAT is the second masters I received while working full time so I can already show I can juggle both.
