I'm currently working on my resume. Earlier this year I volunteered at a museum, and want to include it on my resume. However, what I did at the museum is complicated, and I think it should be explained for the interviewer to understand it. Is this appropriate to do on a resume? If not, how should I go about this problem?

Yeah, you may include some relevant skills from your museum experience to get into your job target. But refrain from going into much detail about your position, emphasize only on skills not your responsibilities, so it won’t look like an autobiography of yours…

Btw, you can have this site as your reference then: http://www.resume-help.org/resume_writing_tips.htm
