No dates on jobs on resume? Seriously?

I rarely see this but it is worth mentioning.  The other day I received a resume with no dates on it.  Seriously, no dates of employment.  Not even years!  Did I mention we do drug test cause you must be HIGH if you think I will call someone with no dates.

Years only are bad enough.  If I see 2014 – 2015 I read it as 12/31/2014 – 1/1/2015.  Call me a cynic if you want but you really do need to put dates on your resume.  I don’t think you need to put the actual date but I need month and year for each position.

Now when it comes to education you need to judge for yourself if it will help you.  The date of your graduation usually tells people how old you are.  Again, this could be good or bad.
